Default Locking your snowboards up?

I've been hearing of snowboards been stolen lately. I'm up at mammoth lakes, do you think it's worth it to lock your board up or is that just move of an incentive for somebody else to steal it?

Just get a bicycle combo lock and when you are riding throw it in your cargo pocket, you won't even know it's there.

It's always worth locking your snowboard up. A cheap plastic combination lock cost maybe $10-15 from any snowboard store and takes 10 seconds to use.

Thieves won't steal a locked snowboard when there are 20 unlocked snowboards next to it.

I had a older Burton Supermodel board stolen from me at Keystone last year.
I was kinda pissed, I liked that board. Nothing worse than going to the worst resort in Summit County and getting your shit stolen...

I still don't lock my board up, but I always put my board in the same little hiding spot every time I hit the bar or whatever.

keep your lock in your hand and use your favorite NS as bait. Getting blood all over a crowded common areas is awesome crime fighting.

I just put the lock/steel rope attached to the rack(or where you always put your board) first thing in the morning. That way i don't have to carry it with me.
