Default Stolen NS Cobra

Snowboarding friends,

An instructor colleague had his snowboard taken yesterday at beaver creek, while eating lunch with guests.

The board is an NS cobra, as you know, these are not on public sale right now. The board is personalised with "mcgilla gorilla" and the serial ns13001 on the left edge.

If you see anything out there, please let me know, this guy is a well known local, his board meant a lot to him. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

That sucks. I don't get some people. I was at our local resort yesterday and someone stole a pair of kids skis.

I hope your buddy gets his board back.

Watch Denver Craigslist and the mountain areas. You might get lucky.

Why was such a valuable board not locked up?!?!

This person knew what they were stealing, a thin wire lock probably wouldn't have been that much of a detterent.

Should he have left it in better view on the busiest weekend of the year? probably. Does that give a scumbag the right to steal it? Definitely not.

Like I said, the board meant a lot to him, and there aren't many of these things around, if you see anything, let me know.
I agree being an instructor does require a lot of times where you are forced to take off your board and set it aside to handle other businesses.

But i don't think you will get far with this forum but definitly check locally because most snowboard capers always sell em somewhere.

HAHAHA this seriously made me laugh, maybe on the extreme side for me but i share the sentiment of punishment. Good luck with the recovery.

I'll keep my eye out. I'll tell my son to watch out too. It's spring break though and lots of strange running around, bad time to leave a high value board out

Super lame. All Colorado resorts have a problem with board thieves. Maybe Silverton is fairly exempt. It sucks, but it's reality. If it's not some scumbag local thinking they got an easy mark on a touron, it's the touron's thinking they just scored a sweet board.

That sucks, but he taught those guests the best lesson. If you care about your equipment it is worth the extra time to ensure your equipment is secure before you walk away from it.

That sucks to hear. I always thought that Beaver Creek was one of the safer locations for leaving your board unattended for a brief period of time when going to the bathroom or getting a quick bite to eat. But I guess with a board like that NS Cobra you're just asking for it no matter which resort you go to. I hope he gets it back somehow.
