sucks man. last spring, this kid stole 4 boards from my one friend, 3 from my other, and a center fin ( i dont no why) from my other friend, and he tried to sell it. but since the word spread fast enough about what happened, he was unable to sell, so sadly i heard he just used the fresh crisp new boards as target practice in the woods, sad. these days u just cant trust other people...
It's disgusting that there is no respect. They probably don't even ride the boards. I'm sorry that you lost your boards and if I see any board like that I will let you know. Thats pretty foul i never had that stuff stolen but I have had similar crap taken when I ride my sled. The craps useless other then to the owner so when someone steals it they was it for everyone. hopefully you find him to deliver him a nice Christmas punch.
Hey, i can relate to your story as well. Last Saturday (12/15), while my roommate and i were out of town, a few guys broke into our house on Bering Rd in OCMD. They took over $2,000 worth of stuff including 3 wetsuits. Strangely they left all of the boards in the house. The entire place was a huge mess. One suit was purchased no less than a month before it was taken and the other two were about a year old. These guys destroyed our house and robbed us of valuables. It really sucked because i had just bought a new board that day, but since i no longer have a suit, i haven't been able to try it out. If anyone knows anything about what happened, please let me know. Thanks.
A’Holes steal w/o thinking of disruption to others. We have dirtbags steal “industry specific” equipment from jobsites that has no use / value to anyone except us. What the A’Holes don’t realize is how many “Others” their thoughtless actions effect. The A’Hole that stole equipment realizes its no good to anyone but us, so he throws it in the corner to collect dust meanwhile I have to shut down job because we are unable to work. Now we lose a day or two wages and work the weekend to make up for this, oh and the cost to replace equipment probably comes out of year end bonus..
The good individuals get screwed and the sad part is after weighing the cause / effect it would have been beneficial for us to pay the A’Hole not to steal. GO FIGURE!!!
Because we now live in a liberal “Not Their Fault” society, they will tell you that it is your own fault because you “YOU should have known better and locked/guarded YOUR stuff.”
However had you caught them & kicked the $hit out of em, you would have won the free ride to the local PSB. F%#ked up aint it, Sad but true.
Its jackasses like that who give surfers everywhere a bad name. Seems like its just getting worse. I live near the OBX, and can remember when you could leave boards right under the house for quick access, or in the back of a truck while at work. Now in the last 2 months there have been no less than 8 boards stolen in the Duck/KH/NH area. What is the world coming to?
