Lost Medallion found on Zuma Beach in Malibu
It was late Sunday afternoon when I got a frantic call from Marlon who was out with his family enjoying the surf and sand of Zuma beach when his gold coin medallion fell off his necklace and landed somewhere in the sand. I assured him that I would be there soon and I would find it for him.
Parking and traffic are two of the biggest obstacles of ring recovery on the weekends and fortunately a lot of beachgoers had decided to leave which left me room to park. I met a frantic Marlon and once again told him I would recover his medallion.
I had my Equinox 900 with me and began to grid the area he thought it could be lost in. Gridding is like mowing the lawn, go slow, cover every inch of sand and dig all non-ferrous targets in your path. On my 3rd pass I got a sweet tone and when I brought my scoop out of the sand there was Marlon’s medallion. I must say I have never seen a customer that excited about a recovery as he was literally jumping up and down yelling “we found it” to anyone and everyone within earshot. It was a great moment and I was thankful I got to be a part of it.
If you ever find yourself in a position like Marlon call or text at 805-290-5009 right away so we can put together a plan to make the recovery as time is not your friend especially on a public beach.
