March 27 I went for a surf with my nephew Quinn and I brought two boards along for him to try out. After being out for a while we did a board swap and left the Vr2(b) at the top of the iceplant at Tourmaline, right where the ramp begins and people are all over the place, including lots of my friends who are regulars.
Quinn said that the whole time he was out he kept looking back to make sure the board was still there, which it was until we got out of the water and walked up the ramp. We had been surfing Green Pipe so it was a little bit of a walk and during that time is when it got pinched.
It turns out that a notorious thief who goes by "Kung Fu Mike" had been seen right before then leaning on the railing by the culvert where he would have had a perfect vantage point to watch us and wait until we weren't looking. So it sure sounds like he's the pirme suspect in this case. He apparently bounces back and forth between OB and PB, ripping people off in one location and then selling the fleeced items in the other.
If you've seen this board, please hit me up through my contact form. I'll be glad to compensate you if you can help me get the board back. Heck you're even welcome to print out this high resolution flyer and spread it around for me if you're so inclined.
