anyone have some decent products they know of?
Most snowboard locks on the market are just deterrents... anyone with a pair of wirecutters can cut the steel cables in a few seconds. I've heard of bike thieves hiding a 22" cutter (capable of cutting 5/16" steel cable) in their jacket sleeve.

Of course that is a few more second for them to be noticed and in general I believe board theft is an opportunistic crime. With that in mind virtually any lock is good enough.
