The kid said no its mine, but... the board had tons of custom stickers all over it and could not be mistaken as a duplicate board. I turned around to see how this would unfold and the guy grabbed his board outta the kids hands and took a nice baseball swing at the kids head with the base of the board, bam! knocked out cold, i don't think that kid will try and steal a board again.
Serves the kid right..

Flick Montana If there is one thing I learned from working in crappy houses in crappy neighborhoods for years it was this: If people want your stuff, they're going to take it.

I'm not much one for breaking rules, but I take my board everywhere with me. If someone tells me I need to leave it outside, I guess I'll be eating my lunch in the snow.

justdust Yesterday at Whiteface, I noticed a sign by the ski rack at the mid-mountain lodge that said that area was under camera surveillance. That seems like a great idea that could result in catching at least some of those board theiving assholes and ultimately making the rest think twice before snatching something that doesn't belong to them. We should start a campaign to make security cams at ski racks an industry standard...hell, most places already have snow cams for their web sites so it shouldn't be that much of an investment! Anyone have any info on whether cameras have reduced board thefts at their local mountain?

arsenic0 As snowolf said just get a good bike cable lock and leave it on the rack and pick it up before you go.
If they dont have people watching a ski check they definately dont have people monitoring ski racks to make sure people dont leave locks on them.
Now your boards locked and you arent stuck carrying a big lock in your pocket.

I just use ski check whenever i go somewhere or leave the board where i can see it if i need too. Although i dont bother with ski check at places like Skibowl anymore, every time i go there nobody is even at the ski check watching the boards..im like wtf? Lol.

thing about a lock is you want something that is lightweight and easy to carry in your pocket, a 3/4 inch bike chain is bulky and will do you an injury when you stack it.

me and my mates have got these little wire combination locks that are pretty much ideal, they are easy to cut through with a pair of wire cutters but practically all snowboard thefts are opportunistic crimes where someone just lifts it as they walk past, which is what these things will prevent.
