Ok i know this might sound dumb but idk what to do. I just started driving and i reliezed that i have to put my keys somewhere when i surf. I don't want to bring a backpack on the beach so i was just wondering what everyone else does
wb and you can find me at crystal and sweetwater and all over wb.
do your keys have a little chip in it like most newer cars do now a days? also does your car have a keypad on the door with numbers so you have code to get into it? finally do you have a trailer hitch on your car?
i have an older truck with no computer chip key,so what i do is,throw my key chain in my center console & lock the truck.then,i take the spare that i have in my wallet & put it in the pocket on my boardshorts & hit the waves!!! throughout my session i check & make sure it's still in my pocket ,that way i never loose my keys on the beach ever.it's the best routine for me anyways.....
this is a tough question to answer because for all we know thieves are reading this forum. So I wont say exactly what i do. But , always keep at least a door key with you and hide the ignition key somewhere either in the car or somewhere hiden outside and dont let anyone see you stash it or retrieve it. Another option if you're using an umbrella and chairs with a cooler and such is to stash your stuff on the beach with some older kind people that you can trust and know by name. They'll always look after your stuff. Get to know your neighbors. Everyone will watch out for you and vise versa if you're cool!
I would keep your key on you a lot of vehicals are stolen by thiefs that are hip to what surfers are doing. Mabye its not happening as much on the eastside as in sd but don't even give them the chance.
