Prior to last year I had an 8 year old burton, went all out on a new setup when I moved out to Colorado. Just bought a lock, for as small and cheap as they are pick one up!

That's the same one I picked up and I thought the same thing... Better then nothing I guess, I'll keep a more watchful eye on the board now though. I've been riding for 15 years and never been jacked until today.

A little research shows these things are junk. You bring up a good topic though. I'm going to buy something like this in a 5' length, then it's long enough to run through both bindings and you aren't going to cut it with a wire cutter or snap the lock.

Kryptonite KryptoFlex 1007 Cable - 7' at REI.com

I'll lock it to the rack in the morning where I usually stop to eat/drink that way I'm not carrying it all day. I'll carry the little burton one in my pocket in case I stop anywhere else.

Problem solved.

Glad to hear you got your gear back, it seems that a cable lock really is a sturdy investment these days. Quite sad really :/

Glad to hear that you got your setup back.

Whenever someone has a board stolen or when another "should I get a lock" thread appears, it usually drifts off into an argument about how easy it is to break a cable lock versus how much even a cable lock deters a thief.

So I'm curious: has anyone ever had their board stolen when it was locked?

Ya ive used my lock for the last 2-3 years and never had issues but I also am VERY paranoid about my shit and make sure if I go in to eat I sit somewhere where I can see it and get to it quickly if needed. I agree with the general consensus that the cable lock is enough to make the thief go to a different board thats not locked, but just like anything else, if they want your board that bad they can cut it. Bike lock is a good idea to lock to a rack and leave but if you are at big resorts you may not stop at the same base....moral of the story: best deterrent is not leaving your shit anywhere!

There may be 1 anomoly, but as a rule you can assume the asnwer is no.

There are several threads like this every seaons and none of them include "but it was locked".

The simple logic here is that if a locked board is leaning next to 20 unlocked board, they don't want yours that bad. Then again maybe they had wire cutters in their pocket. Its amazing how many people don't lock their shit, if you find a locked NS in CO, you simply move along, gee, theres 10 brand new unlocked NS's.
