It really is worth it to pick up one of these cheap locks.

EDIT: Here is my exact lock. Highly recommended.

just a heads up. I used this, forgot the combo and clipped it in one swipe with a small pocket tin snip like this:

Trademark Tools Heavy Duty Aviation Tin Snip: Tools : Walmart.com

no one around even questioned my actions and I wasn't trying to hide it. I could steal your board with that lock in under 3 seconds, or the time it takes someone to turn his head.

A better idea for cheaper is a bike seat lock-

use a pad lock of your choice. Small enough to carry in your pocket but you need a more substantial wire cutter to get through this baby.

I returned my cut burton lock to REI
