Lost GoPro… An Unbelievable Journey

Stephen Gibson takes on a mission to find his lost GoPro and the footage is incredible..

I know everyone is pretty fed up with GoPro videos (me included) so I apologise in advance but I just had to make this one. Scored a fantastic session in Lobos this week but my GoPro came off the mast mount after about 20 minutes and it was gone in the blink of an eye. I thought all was lost (for the 2nd time this year) but Lucy spotted a yacht moored off Lobos harbour so I sailed downwind and promptly borrowed some snorkelling kit, sailed back upwind to the main beach and left my kit there. I swam out to the reef, through the break and started searching and finally after about 45 minutes of being bashed about by the waves I saw it lying down there in 3m of water! Checking through the footage I had a little bit of windsurfing, but, more interestingly, the GoPro had chronicled its entire journey across the reef until I found it so I stuck it all together in this little video.
