“We were surfing with five friends when I fell off my surfboard on the last wave of the day.” After a long search with “a boat and a few jet skis” Griffiths realizes that he will no longer find his board. “I was quite surprised that I lost my favorite shelf,” Danny Griffiths told ABC News.
Four years later, it becomes clear where the board has drifted: Two men see something floating while fishing near Magnetic Island, about 1,700 kilometers from where Danny lost the board in 2017.

Fishermen repeatedly try to find out the owner of the surfboard through social media. Still without success. When the parents of the fishermen tell some locals about the surfboard during their vacation in Tasmania, it becomes clear that the surfboard could well be Griffiths: “We were able to put the missing pieces of the puzzle and we found it was my board! “
According to an oceanographer, it is impossible to pinpoint the exact route the surfboard took, but it is likely that the board “floated northeast of Tasmania, then drifted towards the Australian coast.”
The fishermen will now do whatever they can to bring the board back to Danny.
