Default best locks

I'm wondering what you folks use to lock up your gear? I have a pretty standard Dakine snowboard lock that I religiously use, however I've heard of punks using wire cutters to cut the lock and bail with your board. I've read on here that some folks use bike locks...?

I'm sure it's rare and I'm being paranoid, but none the less, I just have a hard time trusting folks.

For what it's worth, I usually park it where I can keep and eye on it and bring it with me when I head back to the truck, so I use common sense.

I got the same type of lock as you.
Really if someone wants to steal your board they will be able to get away with it. In probably 99% of situations the theif would just take a board that they can pick up and walk away with. Wire cutters and things like that are just extra work.

If you are really worried about your board getting jacked you could switch to a bike lock but a lot of those can probably be cut with a wire cutter as well. Just depends how much you want to lug around with you.

Other option with the huge lock is if you know where you will put your board every time during the day is place the lock on the rack when you get there so you don't have to carry it around.
