    2 scenarios:

    1) a local hippy made a bench out of your board and is now sitting at the front of his house smoking a bong

    or

    2) a college boy from the Charleston area was cruising with all his bro's, stole your board and used it last night as a beer pong table for the end of semester party.

    .....in all seriousness, that stinks man, I hope someone returns it. I lost my dog on Folly Beach a few years ago and never found him. He ran away from the beach at the Washout. A lot of the locals were super friendly and trying to help, however, there were also a lot of sketchy dirtbags that were very rude to us in the process.

    Yeah thats kinda what I was thinking its probably gone for good but its replaceable. Can't imagine losing a dog man thats terrible. Checked the shops there and they took down my info so maybe it'll turn up

    never in my wildst dreams could i fathom not strapping down a $600+ board. prob not a big deal as your parents paid for it but someday maybe you'll learn the value of a dollar. what do you drive anyway? you can fit a 5'11 into 95% or cars if you fold seats down. i have zero sympathy for carelessness like that

    Dude is not a total idiot, someone stole board and he is just being diplomatic trying trying to get it back. Had board cut right off roof rack it sucks. Never heard another word. Shame of it all would have given the dude $40 (which is what he probably sold board for) for a bag of whatever he needed had he just asked. Did the same drill craigslist, local shops, etc. At least a couple people on craigslist tried to scam me (prepay reward) further enhancing my view of human nature (people suck). Which is why I surf so someone including myself doesn't end up dead.

    Yeah because my parents would definitley buy their 22 year old son a surfboard. wouldn't even let them. I drive a hatchback and always put it inside...just put it up there while i was changing. still dumb as hell on my part

    Dude, it can happen to anyone. I had a fresh, brand new board about 5 years ago. Finished surfing the OB pier. It was summer time, super crowded. Had to park all the way up by Winstons. I had surfed for about 3 hours and was tired. Did my thing. Got out of the wetsuit. Had a few boards in the back of my SUV. Took a swig of gatorade, closed the door and drove off. I had forgotten that I laid my board on the sidewalk. It was in a mirror blindspot. I saw my other baords in the back and didn't think anything of it. All of 4 minutes went by and by the time I was on Voltaire ave, I realized what I had done. Got back there. Not even 10 minutes had gone by and the thing was ghost. Asked the guys in the shop right out front. Asked the homeless hippies outside the liquor store.... And that board was not paid for with parents money or anything like that. We all do stupid sh**, especially when certain recreational activities are legal in certain states, if you know what I mean.
