When the finder returned to shore the paddle board has been handed to the Whitsunday water police and it is being treated as found property.
Senior Constable Steve Smith said once police are satisfied that ownership has been confirmed - the board will be returned.
"Tilt of the hat to the Airlie Beach resident for their honesty,” he said.
