Lost Underground Board at Tiscornia

Postby rjpauls » Sun Apr 27, 2008 1:52 am

Lost my Underground Board at Tiscornia Park, MI around 2:30pm. After covering several miles of beach with Anderson, packed it up and headed back to Chicago. It's a green Underground FLX 142 twin-tip with Liquid Force heal straps. Please please please call/email/PM if me if you have any idea where I might find my one and only board. I'd be happy to give a cash reward. Thanks for checking the post,
-Rob

That's no fun. make sure to check ebay, just in case someone finds it and tries to sell it. Hope you find it

yah Rob sent me a text last night letting me know he caught the post and contacted the seller. Hopefully the seller does the right thing and closes the auction and gives it back to him.

Hey Rob,
if this guy thats selling your board on ebay doesn't want to give it back please let us know asap. I suggest we start a flood of complaints to eaby about this seller if he decides to not return your board.

Yah let us know ASAP Rob, we could put MisFit's plan into action

and as a last resort you could just buy the board yourself, pay with credit card, and then cancel the payment afterwards :-D .....

Looks like the auction was canceled. Hopefully the board finds its way home...

Yah I'm really glad I came across that auction. You did the right thing though and got the police involved. These types of things can become uncivil in a hurry.

I'm going to take MisFit's advice and permanent marker my name and phone number on all my gear, ruins the resale value, but it'd be hilarious to see somebody trying to sell that on eBay, ahhaha

yeah, and on that topic (of putting your name on boards, etc.) does anyone know of a really great way to do so? I was thinking maybe engrave it, or is there some really good adhesive/paintmarker/...?

speaking of adhesives for this purpose, I work in an adhesives factory. I'll ask some of the 'lab people' if we have any products that won't eat through the varnish or seal that the board maker puts on it. We've got some neon blue/green glue that'd definitely stand out :D

i've known tons of people that have lost boards and thisis the only problem i've ever seen. Just use a sharpie on it.

Cory

you can always use a label maker and stick that sucker right on, doesn't take up much space and can easily be peeled off
