Never Summer Evo stolen back to old board

Had my new evo stolen at North Star 3 days ago after such a killer day, was such a bummer. Went up with my old 06 Santa Cruz and it just rode like such an anchor was so stiff, i dont know if it was a mental thing but it just really threw off my riding. Anyone else go from a super flexible camber/rocker new board back to an old stiff flat base felt so much different i couldn't ride the same features?

Meh it's in your head. Then again 90% of snowboarding is in your head. So if the board you are on doesnt feel right you will mentally stop yourself from riding as well as you would when comfy.

Going to strap/glue/hide one of these on my board and keep my phone close by while I'm eating lunch. God forbid I catch the bastard stealing my board...

Are they waterproof? And it looks like they're fairly close-range. It will only help you if said bastard passes by someone who has the app. Plus, it, erm... only lasts a year...

Cool idea, but a bit too small-scale for our stolen board needs I'm afraid. I'll stick with my cable lock.

To OP, sorry to hear you lost your board, it really sucks! But, um... lock the nice board up next time, maybe?

Fucking thieves.

I take my board everywhere with me if someone I trust isn't in Eye shot. When I take a shit, it's in the stahl with me.

My friends in Switzerland laughed at me when i busted out the cable lock on my board. It was a habit I picked up in California. Better safe than sorry! Sorry to hear about your board, and glad you didn't steal another one to make up for it...but the thought did cross your mind, didn't it?

Nah, it's in your head man. I have boards older than that, that I love ridin'.

I just don't ride them the same as my newer R&C decks.

I blew out the edge on my favorite deck, my beloved Heritage X. RIP.
Final result, it's dead.

There has been so little snow this year, I'm not bringin' anymore good boards out.

I've rode an assortment of old shitty decks this year.

Ah, fuck, who am I kiddin'

Ridin' shitty old boards, sucks.

But not all old boards are shitty.


I have a feeling you'll find it
