That'll make a lot to of crew nervous about downwinders in the area.

Keep an eye out for learners on a Core. Good luck with the recovery!

This wouldn't have happened at Aussie Pipeline by any chance? Had the same happen to me many moons ago. Worst were the local cops that didn't give a crapiola!

The low life thieves struck again yesterday during a downwinder from Birdie Beach stealing my brothers car, driving it down the road a km then taking the following:
13 m Cabrinha Nomad (Black, Purple, Orange)
10 m 2017 Naish Pivot (Blue/Yellow)
12 m Ozone Enduro V1 (green/black in black & blue bag).

Also stolen was a blue pump and a 9 m Ozone Enduro V1 kite bag (black & blue).

Beach users reported very suspicious guys (one very tall, one possibly with reddish hair) and a dark-haired girl in a car hanging around the car park before the incident. They were even walking over to the beach apparently scoping out water users. This car was parked behind my brothers car down the road. The number plate and description of the car was given to the police but they said they can't do much unless people actually saw them in the act of stealing.

Police are so helpful in these matters. If they are caught with the gear..they just say they bought it off someone.

Juat had a pump stolen from me at Kingscliff back beach NSW. Might be a small loss but it still sucks

I had the attachment of my pump hose stolen at last year's Merimbula contest...

Don't worry about contacting the police if you see it ... But what a kahnt act.
