Snowboard Theft

Have you ever had a snowboard stolen?

Did you get it back?

What's the best way to keep your equipment safe when you go into the lodge for a break?

What type of locking mechanism do you suggest?

Is Board theft common at your hill?

Do you use a combination lock or do you use a key lock?

Just curious what works best in the cold weather or snow conditions.

Is this like something you would use?

Log chain then a hardend steel lock. Anything less than a side grinder is taking it off.

Simple solution put a sticker that says "if stealing this please leave bindings don't have spare" usually works.

I'd imagine that lots of boards probably get stolen, I don't know of anyone personally that has had one stolen. Oh, not true sorry. My ex girlfriends brother had his brand new Ride Machete with brand new bindings stolen last year. He paid over %800 for the whole package & I think he only rode it about 5 times.

I used to bring a cable & padlock, but it's been locking my bbq up last couple years.

Now it either goes in my truck or I try to out smart them.

Usually there are lots of cable locks & chains all ready locked too the racks. I try to find on that will entangle around my board. So it @ least appears as though it's locked up. I twist, loop & wrap it around. So it's not an easy grab & run, you have to know how to unravel it.

Other days when the racks are packed full with boards, I will do a quick scan & find a section of really expensive boards that I wished were mine.
Then tuck mine in behind all those ones, with the theory "who's gonna push all these wicked boards aside to get to mine".

Plus it makes me feel SMART.

There isn't any power outlets too use a grinder @ my mountains. This I know because I have an electric cab heater in my truck & I carry 2) 100 foot extension cords in it. I've looked for one so I can plug my truck in. It's the best thing ever, I carry a comforter & pillow behind my seat. I've slept in my truck many times.

I just wish I was three inches shorter, height wise.

TT

I like going to a hill where I've never seen a board lock, and the only time I've heard of a board getting stolen they actually found the dude.

I once had my board stolen, the guy kinda looked like this.


I wasn't sure what to be more scared of, losing my board or getting drilled by that dude.

Is it bad if they steal your lock and leave the board?

Yes. That's the most terrible thing that could ever happen to anyone.

Never heard of a board getting stolen, a friend of mine his skis got stolen last year at our snowtrip though. Tbh I don't think I've ever seen boards or skis with locks. :P

Got a screwdriver? 60 seconds or so and all you have is a binding dangling on a chain.
