My son's board to be accurate .... he left his board in the carpark at Coolangatta beach (opposite Maccas) on Tuesday evening.
Petal to the Metal= locally shaped board (Ash Ward)
See photos here:
If you can't see the photos it's a 6'1" swallowtail, performance style thruster.
White with nice cream and red fins and a cream "octopus is real" deck grip.
It would be great if it turns up, never a nice feeling leaving a board behind ..... thanks guys
Man that sucks!! I’ll keep an ear out!!
How do you leave a board behind? He never will again. Sometimes life lessons suck, this one does in volumes. BTW my son did the same, from that day on he had to pay for his own boards.
Did he ever do it again?

He paid for it himself thank goodness. I reckon it's like forgetting to tie a ladder or similar down on roof racks, sometimes comes down to getting distracted, we all make mistakes and kick ourselves later.....
I have more of an issue with someone picking a board up knowing it's not theirs and thinking it now is. Anyway, there's still time for the person to respond with empathy.
For sure, shit happens. Hope your young fella gets it back. Harsh lesson no doubt about it but how nice is it when your faith in humanity is restored.
I left my mates board in the car park a while back [stoner idiot I am]. Luckily an honest person found it and I got it back. Repayed the gentlman with a bottle of Jack.
Good luck 82.
I left my Campbell Bros Bonzer at a local beach last year. Drove home, had a coffee, then went back for another look at the waves. There was my board on the footpath, right on the busy south coast road. Whoops!
At the moment I'm so scatterbrained that I could see myself doing it again.
I can beat that.point Leo,early seventies.drove home and forgot my mate who came down with me.he still drags it out of the vault now and then
my pal left a Brewer in the carpark overnight at Margs.
still there next morning.
Hope your son gets its back 82.
My wife [bless her cotten socks] found the one I lost through Facey, Located it 7hrs after I left it behind. It all depends on the person that "found" it 82.

Some classic comments above, thanks guys.
I forgot to mention his nickname is on the stringer "Jerry"
And yep, it's on FB, Insta and Gummy I think as well
I have a soft board found a couple of years ago at Torquay in the car park next to the surf club. It was late, it had been there for about four hours and there was no one around so I grabbed it. Took it to the cop station, but it was closed - rang up later and they didn't want it. Advertised it on local facebook pages, but no one claimed it. Left a message with the surf club and posted notices there. I still have it. If it's yours, describe it and I'll personally deliver it to you.
