Naish KBH - Stolen Willow Beach GTA

Postby irwe » Sun Aug 01, 2021 11:18 pm

As I was landing my kite I let my Naish 112 Hoverboard with Eyebrow front footstrap drift into shore(50 m from shore).
My Board drifted 75 m downwind of me. A Black Ford F-150 stopped and 2 women got out and put my board and hydrofoil (Naish X-Surf 2019) in the back of their truck and drove off!!!!
It was witnessed by a Dog Walker and Two Police Officers in their cruiser who were ready to give them a ticket as they were stopped in a no Stop Zone.
I have my e-mail address on the board.
It all happened in a 2 minute time window.
If you Kite in Ontario please look out for it on the resale market.

My e-mail is on it with "reward for return"
I actually saw the Black F-150 parked on the shoulder 75 m downwind of me but I was too busy landing my kite to notice anything else. I also believe they would have driven by me (30 km/hr) as I was ~ 10 m offshore with my kite at 12:00 coming in to the beach.
So they should have known it wasn't some random board drifting on to shore. There was no one else in the water at that time.

Security Cameras have footage of the F-150 with my Naish Foilboard in the back.

Now I have something that the Police can work with.

I had posted my 'Lost" Board on all the local Social Media.

I received an e-mail from someone saying they had my board.

I was concerned that they wouldn't release it to me until I gave them a reward as it says "Reward for Return" on the board.

So when I went to the home I had a Police Officier on stand by with in shouting distance.

Luckily, I just thanked them for 'finding' the board and that I had been on the beach close by when it was taken.

I got the board with no drama. A big thanks to all the Local Kiters who were keeping an eye out for it.

It's getting windy so now I can go out for a KBH again - Happy Ending!
