if you bought the board with a credit card company see if they have a lost, stolen, or damaged good thing. my board got stolen once so i called american express and got a free new set up that was even better than the one that got stolen from me.

So...

I filed a police report. A trooper called me and took down all my information (and the boards). He's going to "investigate" and interview a few local shops. Don't know what that will do.

I'm going to get in touch with American Express (I used their card to buy the board) and I'll let you guys know what comes up. If they can reimburse for stolen property.... big smile.

If that doesn't work I'll most likely file a homeowners insurance claim (with the help of my parents). The Rome retailed for $500 so it should be worth it (I hope). I'll keep you posted. This situation sucks. I know its just a board but shit...gear is expensive nowadays.

That'll teach you to steal sheep

Seriously though, sorry for your loss. One thing about homeowner's insurance is there's usually a deductible. My husband's bike, which was around $550 was stolen, but our deductible was $500, so it really wasn't worth it to file a claim. Hopefully your parents have zero deductible.

Good luck!

most of the places I go to have free board checks so I never have to use my lock or worry about my board not being there when I come back

Sorry to hear man, totally sucks. I guess as more people get into it so are the thieves. It's changed a lot from when I started in the early 90s where everyone could even leave their bags and stuff in the lodge without anyone taking it. I would expect something like this at Hunter/Mt. Creek but not further up there.

Most places have a ski and board watch for like $2 the whole day. Defenitly worth it
