Yeah just lock it. I lock mine and it wasn't expensive but it looks really good and I don't have that kind of money to give away or replace.. that and no matter what it is it's pretty crap to have anything stolen from you!

I had a hire board stolen once.. but I'm guessing it was probably more of a mistaken identity then a theft.. as I hired it from the mountain and they had all burton boards for learn to ride.. so there was a crapload of them that looked realllly similar/identical.

Nope, Honor Code. I've never locked my board up and I've never had it stolen or even scratched in the rack. I don't know anyone who's ever had their gear stolen. I guess it might be more common in the US.

Last yr at Squaw: Burton Custom w/ triads

This yr at Kirkwood. While checking up on me and my bro's boards ( locked up) A dude got his Custom stolen.

IIRC there was an operation out of Mission Viejo( S Orange Cty) that was punking boards at Bear. Found 7 boards.

1) Use board check in 2) lock. still easy to cut. it will prevent casual thieves ) always keep it with you or have someone in your group keep an eye

Even though I lock my board up I still constantly check up on it and keep it within eyesight whenever possible.

Yeah people always selling boards on craigslist so I'd assume most of them are stolen. I really want a banana board but on top of me being nervous about owning 1 my girl just threw a fit when i mentioned to her I might wanna buy another board. I didnt even get to tell her how much it cost yet... Might have to buy 1 at full retail next year if i cant get 1 during the off season

I lock my board up everytime I go into the lodge but still worry that it can get stolen. So I try and keep an eye on it while eating or just keep checking on it often. I haven't used a board check yet so can't say anything about that.

Off topic but if you're looking at the Skate Banana, Wave Rave has the 152 for $282

No, but it happens all the time. Just ask the bartender.

Thaz just ign't, ya'll. I don't hope you get your board stolen, but if you do you brought it on yourself.

You can bring a damn chain with you if you just leave it on the rack.

That's my current strategy. Lock it right by the window.

The board check is dirt cheap when you consider everything. If your board is stolen your finished riding for the day. My board check is $15 with a season pass and only a few dollars with a day pass. I figure the cost of time and gas to get to the hill is more then that yet alone replacement cost of the board. Use the board check or lock them up.

If you do find the thief, how do you prove it is your board? Lots will say stickers, but that doesn't with no doubt prove anything. Both can claim the exact same thing on the board.

Get the feeling most would take matter in their own hands. I was pretty pissed and would've acted irrationally. But assault is a serious charge.

Leaving a bike lock on the rack all day is an excellent idea.
