ever had your board stolen?

well ive never been scared of theft of my board, main reason was because it was a average set up nothing fancy. but this year im going to have a lot more invested in my set up. i pro foumed a burton custom X, and ride cad bindings. around 900 msrp. i feel like taken a real chain to resorts when i go now! im just going to be so Paranoid when i got to go pee or anything.

so just wanted to see if anytone has had there board stolen from them?

My friends brother got his board stolen when he went to use the bathroom. I personally dont like leaving my board even though its not the most expensive thing but still costs my hard earned money. My friend usually is not worried about it, i like it when someone watches it. I just don't trust people.

I haven't had a board stolen but my buddy Adam almost did and we caught em in the act. We were both walking to the cafeteria but I was straggling about 30 feet behind and he set his board down and went in. I stopped about 20 feet from where he set the board down because I was yakking on my cell phone. I saw two kids kind of walking together and one stopped and the other went in right behind my friend. I didn't think anything of it until 30 seconds later when one of the little fuckers was walking down the stairs with my buddies board under his arm. Needless to say, he didn't get away with the board and he lost his pass which was to another resort. I have tinted windows on most of the vehicles I own and I keep my board under a blanket in my truck when it's in there and I'm not. Just keep it locked up and watch where you leave it when pissing etc.

i would not trust leaving it at the top! some guy with a shitty board that does not care about it sees yours, rides it down! your chances of seeing who took it or catching him are so slim

I had one stolen about twelve years ago. Went in for a cup of coffee came out like two minutes later and it was gone .
Since then I've never left my set-up unattended or unlocked.
Do your business in the woods, if your not a chick, or have a friend watch it if you need to go inside and don't have a lock.
Even locked I still take short lunches and even put it in a spot I can see from inside.

I honestly never leave my board anywhere out of my sight EVER. Even if I go in to eat, I leave it by the window and sit nearby so I can keep an eye on it. If I have to leave it, I always have someone I know keep an eye on it. The places I go to always have boards stolen. Even junky rentals get taken so I don't trust anyone there.

Lock it up with a quality lock (even then don`t leave it for long) or use the ski check and when you ride with friends, always leave a guard while you go in. Sad that it`s this way, but it`s life nowadays.
Agreed, also just know that just cause you have a lock does NOT mean you should be less carefull!!!

I've looked at a couple snowboard locks and I'd personally use a real chain because the ones I looked at could be cut with a pair of tin snips or bolt cutters in a matter of seconds.
