Stolen Boards...This SUCKS
 
Two nights ago I was working on 1 of my 3 vehicles. The wife came home and let the keys stay in the car in driveway. I locked the other car that stayed outside. In the morning I went to my wife car to find our Ipod missing. I did not think much of it. That afternoon I realized two snowboard and two skateboards missing. The police said people open cars to get the garage door opener. The thieves got in wifes car and opened the garage to get boards. Any one ever have their board stolen? What can I do to get it back? My first thought is to leave the garage open all night. Except this time, I stay up with my 45. Then put some holes in whoever goes in the garage. Even if they are kids. Any one have a more rational solution?

Fuck thieves. Lowest of the low.

This one's on your wife though.

Shit like this is one of the many reasons why I choose to live out in the sticks.

don't be stupid. i know it sucks, but just file a police report and keep an eye open on craigslist and ebay.

Thieves don't return after they've gotten what they want. Pointless plus it's not breaking and entering if they walk in and if they make it to public property before they die you're fucked.

You can claim the loss on home owners depending on the policy/deductible.

Ya this shit sucks and the worst part is its mostly kids. So much for the youth of America. I left my garage open by accadent one night and went back out because I left something in my car and walked in and saw a flashlight dissapear. So shut the garage door, locked him in with me, and grabbed a tire iron. He was teying getting away with my GPS and some iPhone asseccories.

I've never had a snowboard stollen but a someone I ride with did either last year or the year before, I forget. Worst part is was the cheapest set-up in the group sitting there and was an entry level board. Probably some stupid ass young kid who liked the graphic. My aunt had her skies stollen a few years ago in steamboat springs. It really sucks and ruins your weekend.

Thanks for the feedback. Every hour that goes by it hurts a little less. I will keep watching Craigslist and eBay.

check your homeowners insurance. There may be a personal articles policy with a low limit, but you may have a deductible so it may be a wash.

Personal articles policy from State Farm. It's $13 per $1,000 in coverage, per year. No deductible, and it does not count against you as a homeowners claim.

I don't cover my snowboards, I cover my photography equipment ($8,000). In the future, you can cover your boards all for $13 a year or so, depending on receipt and value.

Sometimes your local shop will try to help out in this kind of situation. If you're in CO and need a board I'll throw ya my 155 ET for like $50 but that doesn't really help :(

I got my bike stolen in a similar situation and it hurt, like losing an old friend. But looking to settle it with a gun is a REALLY bad idea. Even on your own property you are opening up yourself for serious jail time.
