Board thefts from surf shop

Jackson Lavell-LeeBusselton Dunsborough Times

Six second-hand surf boards with a retail value totalling about $3500 have been stolen in two months from Yahoo Surfboards in Yallingup.

Yahoo Surfboards retail manager Mark Hills said the breach of trust meant board displays would now be chained up and better CCTV security systems implemented. “It’s one of those ones where you’re going to get caught,” he said.

“I’m sure we can work out an amicable situation if the boards are returned.”

The second-hand boards had been bought from surfers because the shop wanted to keep old boards in the community.
