Growing up in NYC you know nothing is safe if left unattended. IMHO if you shelled out all that money for a board (even lower priced ones arent cheap), why cant you invest in a lock? Not the bullshit retractable burton dakine etc locks.. get something good. it may be a bitch to carry but you can def find something.. even if its a combo lock made for lockers they do the job just fine
I don't think he would've locked his board up to anything inside the "Hotel Diva". Totally sucks. But at least he ended up with gold.
