You guys have probably already seen (or will see) my pic on facebook.  Having trouble posting a pic here, but anyhow:

My BDS Triplane got stolen today.  I didn't realize it until I heard a car door slam and saw the white pickup truck speed off.  It was still a few moments before I realized the board was gone.  The guy parked behind a bulldozer and I didn't see him at all.  

Anyhow, super bummed to say the least.  Really liked that board!  If anyone here sees it on ebay let me know, Blue dip Triplane w/Indy trucks and Pink Slimeball wheels.

Thanks!

That sucks. Hopefully, the asshole who stole it will fall and get hurt while riding it.

So I called to file a police report earlier today, and when the officer called me back to take my report he asked me to describe the board.

I told him it was a Bulldog Skates deck, and he says "Is that Wes Humpston?  from Dogtown Skates?"  [cool]  Seriously!  

I said "yeah, you must skate?"   Turns out he's a surfer so how's that?   

I'm not hopeful on getting the board back but just in case it winds up in a pawn shop or on ebay I figured a police report on the thing would be helpful.

Anyhow, Watch Out Wes the the cops in Texas know all about you! [rofl]

Thieves SUCK!!!

However, the pink wheels do leave some open-ended questions that your new friend above should be able to whip outta you!
At least your sense of humor is intact.  [cool]

Got a bit of an update here--thanks to a friend in the skateboard business (you guys might know him!) it looks like i will have a replacement triplane winging its way towards Texas soon enough.  (Thanks Wes!)  So at least I'll get back on my favorite ride soon enough

ALSO--and although I know that this is a long shot, I'm hoping somebody here who is savvy with graphic computer stuff could maybe help me...because it turns out that I DO have a pic of the thief's vehicle on my phone!  It's just that the truck is small in the shot and (like I said, I know its a long shot but...) I am hoping maybe somebody who knows some computer tricks could maybe help me blow up and adjust the contrast on this pic and try to pull a license plate number...

If anyone might want to offer assistance in some sleuthing shoot me a pm w/your phone number and I'll send you the pic.

If the picture you have is small and a low resolution you will struggle to get a clear enough blow up to grab that licence plate number. What is the size of the picture file you have?

Cameras on phones aren't great unless you have the very latest versions of iPhone/Samsung.

Yeah, I'm hoping for something like that Blade Runner thing...but yeah I know its a low res (no res?) quality pic.   But to me its mostly the funny thing* is I actually did get the truck in one of the pics I took that day.  It's teensy in the pic and no fucking way will anyone ever be able to extract any detail from the white square but that's not going to stop me from asking people to futz with it.  Just for fun. [smile]


Happy to have a replacement deck coming, the last specimen in the stash as it turns out.


So thanks  again Wes! ...and thanks you guys!
