Sorry to hear it happened. I hope you wrote down the serial number. You can report it to police and the resort. If there are any suspicions at any time, at least you can back your claim with the serial #

I reported it that day. Still no news. I've also gone around local shops and put the word out.

Yeah, board thieves are a problem just about everywhere. With higher rider/skier visits Colorado has a high theft number too unfortunately. Board locks really help prevent this, as the thieves just go grab the next available unlocked board. Sorry that happened man.

Eh that's why I keep my setup on the cheap! O-Matic - $125, Rome 390's LTD - $65...jk

Seriously though, some guy got caught on my local mountain trying to steal a setup. Since the setup is worth more than $500, they are charging him with a FELONY. YAY!

One of the easiest expensive items to steal. Really sorry to hear about your loss.

My friends and I ususally all ride up together and heres what we do. Rather than chaining them all up individually, we use two lockes to lock all the boards together on both bindings, and then use the third to chain up to the rack. This way someone has to pull 3-4 boards with them after getting through one lock, or else go through 3. Works like a charm
