It was a perfect day for surfing at San Francisco’s magnificent Ocean Beach. Kyle took the tram from his home in The Castro right to the beach at Judah Ave and the Great Highway. He was eager to hit the big leftbreak with his pal Max. He placed his wallet and iPhone in a sandwich bag and hastily buried them in the wet sand. An hour later, they emerged from the surf, happy and tired. Kyle went to unbury his stuff and could not, on the massive sandy expanse that is Ocean Beach, locate where he had hidden it. After 30 minutes of searching, his surf buddy Max Googled, “metal detecting Ocean Beach” and up popped one of my blog links with my phone number. 30 minutes later I arrived with my gear to find that Kyle and Max had already completed a very large matrix search by dragging their feet in the sand.

As I always, I begin a search by asking the owner, “if you were to guess exactly where you think it might be, lets mark the spot”. Max and Kyle indicated it was probably located between a wet and dry sand stick marker and a pile of dog poop diagonally down by the rising tide. Within that large rectangle, which they had already searched with their feet, Kyle circumscribed a 60 foot diameter circle with his feet in the sand where he thought was the best chance of locating his gear. I began my own matrix search inside Kyle’s circle and after 25 minutes, I got huge titanium hit from Kyle’s iPhone just inside his circle, but just outside where they had searched with their feet, closest to the rising tide.

A very relieved Kyle with his wallet and phone, and was soon back in the water to catch another set.

Kyle’s iPhone.

Engagement ring found buried in the sand by two professional Ringfinders.

Encinitas ca, Monday 5/16/15  I received a  text From John Hughes  My Good friend from TheRingfinders and said he needed help on a search and the large diamond ring had a very small and thin platinum band with very little metal also the couple rented metal detector two days ago when the wind blew there seat and umbrella fell many feet over with the Ring in the cup holder.

I’m thinking to myself.. (Wow)..I just helped and returned with John Hughes a Diamond ring this morning  to a happy couple and Sentimental story to tell that day..Then I texted John (on my way 15 min E.T.A) see you there. When I arrived I had noticed the husband with a rented metal detector Griding and swinging like a pro.However 3 different  detector machines had scanned the small beach and short area where it was lost so walking down the long steep trail path I was observing and losing a little hope but Knew I had My Garrett infinium L.S. Pulse induction machine wich is very sensitive to deep and small gold in the most roughest & mineralized conditions.

 

I began cross griding a 30’x30′ area for 15 minutes when John turns his machine off said keep going that away and he walked over to Scott With his soon to be Wife Mrs. Ozuna.

15 seconds later I get a faint high/low  ring sound in the gold range,scooped..and OMG no way! I instantly was laughing in Joy Looking at the 3 of them hysterically like I won the lottery and Made a miracle actually happen.They ran over and after hugs,Tears and relief we could all hear the local and friendly crowd above beacons beach cheering as the sun was setting.The Most amazing day for us ALL.Thank you You all out there Who got to share this wonderful Moment on the news channel.
