Preventing Your Snowboard From Getting Stolen

With my new really expensive investment I was wondering how you guys prevent your snowboards from getting stolen.

Snowboarder stealers should get the death penalty!

I just leave mine at home and use what I find at the hill. Sometimes it's a bitch to get the right setup so bring a screwdriver and don't worry about swapping parts.

Uhm not sure if I understood you correctly but why by a stick if you always leave it at home?

Cable lock. Simple, lightweight, and enough of a deterrent to keep most thieves away. The longer you leave it though, the more likely it may get snagged... Just take it back to the car if you plan on doing the apres thing for awhile after riding...

Sorry, just kidding. Get a cheap cable lock if you're worried.

Just buy a chain and a lock or a decent bike lock and leave it attached to a rack before you go up the mountain. This way you get better protection and you don't have to haul it around with you.

Yeah, but you can also cut them in about 2 seconds with a leatherman or something similar.
