For Lance Carroll and his family, surfing is a way of life. They even use their talents to help raise thousands of dollars in donations for local charities, like Surfers for Autism.
"That's a nonprofit group where we surf 200 autistic kids at a time, up and down the coast of Florida," said Carroll.
Sometime on Sunday night, or Monday morning, Carroll said someone broke off the lock on his box truck and stole his two surfboards and tools.
Carroll says, "I think whoever took these surfboards, whoever stole my property has no idea of the importance of those surfboards."
One board is about six feet in length and has flames painted on it. The other is nine feet, six inches long. "That is a board I made about 15 years ago in my own shop, and it has artwork on it that is completely irreplaceable," he told us. "The artwork was done by Ron Walotsky, who is a world-renowned science-fiction artist."
Word of the missing boards has spread throughout the Internet, on Facebook and surfing websites. Carroll said these surfboards can't get very far, and he pleads with whomever has them, to return them.
"Those surfboards are very unique, those surfboards will not make it to any beach from Miami to New York City and not be noticed. I recommend that whoever has them, if you have not already pawned them or whatever you intend to do with them, you should just return them to the rightful owner."
