Mike D, of Beastie Boys fame, is a surfer. Of course, since he’s Mike D, he’s got a house near Point Dume, one of the most exclusive parts of Malibu. And yes, he stores surfboards there. Judging by the photos, he’s got a few gems–case in point, the Dead Kooks. According to reports, someone broke into his place and stole almost 20 surfboards, including the ones in the photo above.
Now, Kelly doesn’t come out and say these are Mike D’s surfboards, but TMZ (ever-so-trustworthy!) is reporting that they are indeed Mike’s. According to them, Mike D told LA cops that along with the surfboards, the thieves got away with skateboards and a bunch of other “surf-related gear.” According to D, at least a couple of the boards were worth upwards of a thousand dollars.
Kelly Slater, being the guy that he is, decided he’d give a helping hand and post the photo on his Instagram. So, like Kelly says, if you know anything about these boards, send him a message. Mike D will thank you.
Please keep a lookout around LA/Malibu area (or anywhere up and down the coast by now) and send me or anyone tagged here a DM if you have any info on these boards. Someone broke into my friend’s house near Point Dume and stole around 20 boards probably knowing he was out of town. One time my boards got stolen in LA and @surfline was cool enough to feature it on the homepage and they were spotted within 12 hours. Nobody got arrested or in trouble, just wanted the boards back. #IHateThieves but I like these boards. In fact, I’d be happy to buy a couple back off whoever did it on the side😉. They’re pretty cool.
