Saw an XRide posted on CL in the Miami area in the last few days. Don't know what the size of the missing board is.

Thanks for passing this along. You wouldn't have saved a copy of the ad as it seems to have been taken down?

Wow, that was quick... I had looked at the ad less than an hour ago.

No I don't. It was a photo of a board matching the description (colors) and with a 305 phone number. The board was specified to be a 133X39 2010 XRide. The photo appeared to have been taken with the board leaning up against a wall in a parking garage. Interesting setting for the photo, I thought.

I wish I had taken a screenshot.

Thanks, perhaps Chris could contact Craigs List for a backup copy of the ad. You are right the setting for the photo seems a bit unlikely for a normal sale. Also, the timing of the removal of the ad so shortly after your post suggests pursuing this with Craigs List would be a good idea.

Here is a photo of the board, a North x-ride kiteboard, white-blue-green. These guys stole a lot of stuff, five kites, two boards and all the accessories that go with.

Thanks for your input. Have others seens any of this gear out there? Photos and descriptions at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=11566

It was still in my browser cache... I took a screen shot, and I will send it to you if you want to PM me with an email address. Or just shoot me an email and I will reply to you with the sceenshot pasted into a powerpoint slide. Best of luck to Chris getting his gear back.
