I went snowboarding at a new place once last winter, we were getting ready to leave and I set my board on the rack outside to go into the pro shop quick, 5 minutes later my board was gone. I was so furious! Went to security, and of course the camera was facing the wrong way at the specific time, how convenient. I checked ebay and craigslist for weeks, but it never showed up, was really hoping i would catch them. I'm just glad it wasn't a really expensive board.
Now anytime I go boarding and want to go to the shop or get something to eat, I leave my board with the free storage facility, not going to get stolen there
