I would have loved to confront the f**ker that stole my board in person! Much much more satisfying than having the police nab him for you.

It happens everywhere. East coast, mid west and the west coast all have horrible stories.

snowboard companies should put a chip in their board to help locate stolen boards...

okay that wont really work in so many ways... but it'd be nice =)

It'd be sweet if board shops would offer an engraving service on purchase

can't trust anyone these days, even in the "community" of the sport

setup one or multiple google alerts with the keywords from the items that were taken from you, might help if the dipshit posts stuff up for sale on the interweb

A chip that you could track from your smartphone gps or something

Resulting in violence against said thief... er sorry I meant to say, arrest by officer

As shitty as this is but you've got to realize that snowboards are an expensive commodity and can fetch good money. There are people out there that go around to resorts looking to steal boards and ski's. Judging by your board and setup I would think the thieves eyes lit up when they saw two nice decked out boards.

I feel for you guys. I hope you get the SOB.

Shit that sucks. I was just up at Whistler this weekend too, it amazes me how many people leave their boards unattended through the village. I always keep mine locked up if I'm stopping somewhere in the village after coming off the mountain.
