Wavehunter-- It wasn't me. The guy you should thank is a regular at 35th that could easily pass for Stone Cold Steve Austin. He's always out for DP, you can't miss him.
I surfed 35th st that day, and I saw your board when I was parking. An older guy asked me if it was mine, and said it had been there for about 2 hours (probably the same guy). I just left it figuring that the owner would eventually come get it. I don't think it was gone by the time I got out of the water. Sorry dude........
I know the guy who returned your board, super nice guy though he looks like he could squash most anyone, longboarder right? I like surfing with him, just his looks regulate the young pricks in the lineup, I love it!
thats one good man.
