Default People stealin gear!

Watch out for your stuff!Yesterday we were at skyway east wind my friend dropped his board close to the shore so he came landed his kite an he saw the board drifting to the mangroves area just like 200 yards from were we launch!So he landed the kite and he saw people picking up his board from the water,he went to get it and board was not there.Bunch of tattoed white trash people was hanging there with a old junk stretch limo he walked up to the one who grabbed the board ,and asking for it.White trash dude said what board ,and he was asking who are u ,are u a doctor or a lawyer,what hospital r u working ,my friend was asking why would i be a doctor?White trash said ,because those can afford to do things like this,some more conversation ,after they give the board back, pulled out of the trunk of the limo.They said u r lucky at this time!We come here every night !
So watch your stuff and if someone grabs your board go team up with someone together get the board.

I had something similar happen in Pompano recently. My board drifted a couple of hundred feet down the shore as I secured my kite with some line tangles. A woman had picked it up and was looking for a reward for finding and taking the board off the beach?! People.
