Lost Ring Swimming, Solana Beach

from Carlsbad (California, United States)

Got a call fron Dave asking if I could recover his ring in about waist deep water. I looked at the tide book and saw tide was going down so I was on the way to meet him in 30 min.

After finding parking I was early so I went where I was told and started my grid. Hair pin, hair pin and another hair pin. Damn.  Then I see him wave from shore so I knew must be him.

He tells me his wife thinks he was more to the left so I keep gridin that way.  Bang, very loud beep. Oh yea this is it. As I push the scoop in and go to pull it my handle breaks, carbon fiber.

I did everything I could to scoop it but couldnt get it. Went to my truck and did a quick repair. Back in that same hole used my feet to move some sand and two sccop later, there is his gold ring. It had gone really deep as sand was real soft. Aprox 18″ down.

Thanks Dave for the reward and a new friend has been made. Smiles all over and the life gaurds were happy we were able to help him.

We are TheRingFinders. 🤔

    Many thanks for John making a quick trip after my phone call. Turned me from devastated to joyful and relieved. We have been married 12 years and this ring represents a lot to me

  3. In sea beach, I found lots of metal things. One day I went to sea beach near my home. Then I am detecting there. I detect a long time, and I find an old gun, it seems 40 years old. Then I carry it in my home. I clean it and I saw it very old.
