Sorry, let me narrow it down a bit. The board is blue in color and a twin tip. I would say no more than a year old. It does have a sticker on it which should really help identify board.

Just another reason everyone should put their name and number on their boards. If that was there, this board would already be back to the owner.

It's amazing to me how many people out there don't do this.

Sorry for the lack of info on the first post.

The problem with putting your name and number on your board is that permanent marker looks like crap and eventually wears off anyway. Labels fall off in a few sessions from the beating of the water against them. Making a custom bumper sticker may be the answer but is a heck of a lot of work...

Steve-O, what do you use to label your boards with your name and number? Thanks!

Toby,

That is exactly what I use. A bumber sticker. Surf related stickers usually hold up under the elements. Lots of guys put them on skim boards, surf boards, wake, ect. We have a 3x4 inch sticker from WSW that has our phone number on it. The only downside is that removing the sticker leaves a uv mark which probably isn't that great for resale, but it's hard to resell something that is lost. LOL!

Stickers are free at the shop. I will try to remember to keep a bunch with me if any one wants em.

The board I lost back in March got returned to me in Sept from a dude in Texas. It was the sticker that saved my ass.

Hell, yeah. Cool image, Tom. Maybe the boards aren't just floating around. They are pissed off at all the stomp tricks and rail grinds we threw on 'em, so they keep swimming in and breaking shit up, like in that movie Orca.
