If you lost your board at Il beach state park go to the police they pick up stuff from the beach there I lost my bar and went there and they found my bar.

Contact the local Sheriff's department.
I lost my board, and a Sheriff Deputy got it back, from the guy selling it on ebay 2 weeks later.
I posted multiple flyers along a 20 mi stretch of Lake Michigan to no avail.
Hopefully you have some pictures with the identifiable board.
See this link of my story, happened about this exact same time last year!

In Michigan there is a 60 day, unclaimed/lost/abandon property law.
Everybody is supposed to turn in "found" property to the local police, if the rightful owner does not show up in the alotted time, the property can be returned back to the finder.
Maybe there is something like that in Wisconsin
In hind sight, I should have contacted law enforcement immediately, but I figured nobody would be that dumb to rip off the stickers and post the board on ebay 2 weeks after they found it.
So, in my case, I was able to get the report taken, after the board popped up, but it is a better idea to have it done immediately.
I would think that if your board does turn up, even a number of months down the road, having the report on file will give you an immediate course of action against the party in possesion.

we talked to the life guards and waukegan police or security i couldnt tell and they didnt care. we asked is there a lost and found and the guy just laughed at us he was probably thinking (do you think were in winnetka) in waukegan someone is just going to take anything they find and not think twice about it. im just going to be looking on ebay for someone to try selling it i might make more sighns next week.

The cops are obligated to take a report.
I can just imagine that you haven't got a lot of hope in getting your board back by a Samaritan, but you do have a right to your lost property, say if it ended up in a pawn shop or eBay, or where have you.
Know the law.
THIS IS THE WISCONSIN LAW
