My beloved Fanatic Skate 99L was stolen last night from the roof rack of my car, in San Francisco. I was only left with the strap dangling on the roof top this morning as I reached my car.

Special signs on the board: Fanatic Skate Team Edition (bright green), 99 litters, model from 2013. Got a nose job on it making it all white on the nose area view from the top and lighter green (than the rest of the board) view from the bottom. This makes it rather easy to recognise (see before / after picture attached). It also has a rather large scratch mark (repaired) underneath.

If by any chance you come across my board, or anyone trying to sell it, I would be most grateful if you take the time to please help me and inform me about it.

Dude, that royally sucks. You forgot to ask anyone who sees the thief with the board to pummel him senseless and kick him in the naughty bits, then set his car on fire.

Going to Maui Saturday, will keep my eyes open.

Major bummer, and sorry to hear about it. One time when I was living in San Francisco somebody broke my car's front window just to steal my baseball cap. No matter what neighborhood you are in it's common to see broken glass on the sidewalks from the previous night's break-ins. Frisco is not Kansas anymore.

Yeah! It does suck big time... I like the your suggestions about how to handle the dude if anyone sees him Smile Have fun in Maui and thanks for the message.

The harsh reality of SF is settling on me... I was lulled in believing my neighborhood was safe and all, but I guess not. Tough lesson to swallow for sure, but let it not be in vain. cheers

Yeah I'd never leave my boards on top of vehicle in the city without a cable lock thru the foot straps ... you can buy a 6-ft bike cable and basic lock thru foot straps ... hopefully your average scumbag will not want to hassle with removing footstraps or cutting thru cable ... just the appearance of cable and lock will deter lots of thieves ...

Born and raised in SF. Escaped to the gorge in 03. Buy a plain white van. No stickers or fancy wheels. Tint the back windows dark as possible. Make a drape behind the seats with black plastic. If they can't see it they won't steal it. Works for me. Or better yet move...

I`ll keep my eyes open in the Gorge, although we don`t have any criminals up here.

I have a couple of boards on the rack without locks during the last three summers without any issues. But I'm talking about the boring Sunset district and a couple of boring looking 05 JP boards.
