I can't believe there's actually still a debate about this!?! If anyone still reading thinks there's no point in locking up your board, tell me how you feel the exact moment you realize it's gone. Tell me...
I always lock up my board, helps me relax and enjoy my beer a little better without constantly trying to keep one eye on where my board is. I picked up the smallest cable bike lock I could find, keep it in my cargo pant pocket and it works great. Is it 100% guarantee??? not a chance, but it's 100X better than nothing
Fuckin right! I don't want to be that sketch bag in the lodge looking out the window the whole time to make sure my precious is still there. I want to have (relatively) no worries while getting something to eat/drink or when I'm taking a piss...
I still find this is the most useful for me. Small lock, hard to break, works at all the resorts I frequent.
I didn't lock my boards up until I started getting ones that a lot of boarders know are valuable (like the Lib Tech Skate Banana).
I was thinking of getting a skate banana as my rock board so I don't cringe every time I hit something... Ha!
Soooooo.... Now that we're nearing the end of this year... How plausible would it be to get a tally on how many times this, or extremely similar topics have been brought up? Typically with the EXACT same responses...
A shitload. That's what boggles my mind...
I have a cardinal rule about locking boards, every time, no exceptions. I've been using the same recoilable lock for 20 years. I know it can be cut, but "most" thieves would rather walk away with something not locked at all.
My thoughts exactly. I lock my board EVERY TIME I WALK AWAY FROM IT. BTW, how many times in those 20 years was your recoilable lock cut and your board stolen? That's my point... any lock is much better than nothing.
I sort of feel sorry for people when I see the "my boards been stolen" threads, but at the same time I think to myself "well buddy maybe you'll lock it next time eh?
