Lost Wedding Ring at Carpintera Santa Claus Beach Found!



I got a call from Emily Saturday afternoon asking if I could help her son-in-law find his platinum wedding ring at the beach. My first question was did he lose it in the dry or wet sand? Her response was neither, he was neck deep in the ocean boogie boarding when it fell off. I did a quick check of the tides and it turned out he lost it at high tide so I knew I had one chance to find it today (Sunday morning) as we had a decent minus tide at 6am. Carpinteria is about 45 minutes from my house so I headed out at 5:15am to see if we could recover this ring. Gideon and Erica had been married less than a year and losing this ring was a blow for sure.

Gideon is an ER Dr. in Ventura and finally had one day to rest at the beach after a 36 hour shift and he ended up losing his wedding ring.

I got out there and the tide was right where I needed it to be and I had around 20 minutes of search time before it came back in based on where I had plotted his location from yesterday. I was about 10 minutes in and I got a nice tone on the minelab equinox and two scoops later I had the ring in the scoop.


Gideon, Erica and Emily met me at the beach and the return was complete. It was an awesome way to start a Sunday morning and I'm thankful we had the opportunity with the tides. If you happen to lose a piece of jewelry time is not on your side so make sure you call or text me at 805-290-5009 and ask for Dave.
