Kite Van and Kite Gear Stolen

Postby KiteRacer » Thu Jul 18, 2013 2:00 pm

Last night my red GMC Safari van was stolen from outside my apartment in Presidio Heights in SF. If people can keep their eyes out for any of the following items around the community I’d appreciate help trying to locate any of it! The big ticket items are:

2 MikesLab raceboards (one custom and one Cobra)
10 Ozone Edge 2013 kites – some are my custom SVB kites (SVB and HEINEKENRACING is stitched into them), others are the standard 2013 models, one is a logoed America’s Cup kite (only 4 were ever made)
2 Ozone Catalysts 6m and 8m 2013
3 sets of Tectonics Race fins
1 Cabrinha twintip and 1 Cabrinha skillit surfboard

and sooooo much more...!

email me erikaheineken@gmail.com

Thanks! Erika

This super lame.
Having the kites in the car in car is the next best thing to having a locator in it.
If any one puts any of those kites in the air the will literally be flagging themselves out.
It would be very helpful if you posting some sketches or pictures with captions.
Hopefully you get everything back asap, but I would remain confident that eventually a lead will come up.

Someone just stole the most obvious looking green Zig fish style skate board from my car at Sherman last weekend. It has black grip tape cut out in grids so you can see the original green board on top. Then green and black checkers on the bottom.

We really need to catch someone with this obvious crap. Should we start putting transmitters on stupid crap like old boards and kites? Such a shame to add an extra ounce to a kite where every ounce counts.

I hate thieves and malicious hackers. I am trying to figure out the best keys to cement glue Internet thieves fingers to? You could then lock the computer to a desk and put a dog bowl full of catmix and a cut in half milk gallon full of water on the desk too. Add in a nice leather chair with a hold drilled in the bottom to cement glue their ass too and finish it off with pig-cloth underneath for sanitary purposes.
O yeah you could put programmed box containing solvent that will open after the hacker types uses 10 keys to transfer every last cent they fraudulated to charity. (Toes are optional)

It would very interesting to know what would happen if religious extremists created a self-aware, learning, and adapting program that gain access to all of the NSA mainframes.
Dredge bot?

Crap I am going to turn Amish now! I believe the Amish would approve of kite technology? Strings?

I think it must be impossible to sell stolen kite equipment. My bigger concern is that they end up destroying it in order to get rid of any evidence of the theft.

I just pre-ordered this item: http://www.thetileapp.com/



I got it for my dog, but I'm thinking I should get an extra and hide deep in one of my kite bags

I had my truck stolen from my home in Oakland about 10 years ago. the back was filled with kite equipment, windsurfing stuff and ski equipment (it was spring). My insurance claim for the sport gear was more than the F250 super duty with diesel, crew cab....OPD found my sport equipment trashed in a dumpster....they just want the car and the other stuff is most likely sitting in a bottom of a dumpster somewhere.

There are people in this world that are simply fucktards....they are the same ones who use beaches as ash trays.

Good luck getting your stuff back.

The Tile looks like a practical device for everyday people.
I was thinking something more along the lines of something that bounces back sonic pulses to trained dolphin, Orcas, and bats.
