JFC we ARE turning into a police state. No offense dude, but lock your shit up. If it gets stolen, unless they setup a sting, get the board off dude in public and have serials matching what you have on record, then I'd say the cops overstepped themselves.

Regardless of being in the right or wrong here, sure it ended up well - but doesnt anyone worry that cops are seizing power like martial law?
The guy stole something and got what he deserved. Case closed.

I wouldn't say the cops had sufficient evidence. I had numerous pictures of me with my board, I reported it stolen on the night it was stolen with the description.
Plus come on, I haven't even seen another 09 jibstick with 08 red unions anywhere. I'd consider that enough evidence when compared to the guy on craislist saying "Oh yeah my buddy gave it to me"

1/4" thick chain and a heavy duty combination lock is the way to be from now on.

Dakine Cable Lock -

~$10, smaller than an ipod to fit in any pocket without even noticing. of course it would be easy to cut the cable if you have the tools - but if you're leaving your board on the rack in front of the lodge or whatever while you piss or something, a thief would most likely move on and not deal with anything that requires work.

I also use it more when I leave my board in the bed of my truck when I go to the store or to eat or whatever. It's awesome.

Hey,

I swear by the Dakine cam lock. Awesome investment for $20 and the cable is pretty thick too.

Some kid had a lock like one of those last night and he forget the combination so him and his friend had their skiis locked up together on the same lock. His friend is like "you're a dumbass" then just grabs the lock and gives it a tug and it snapped. But yeah those things are better than nothing.
