I went out to the Central Florida Wakefest and had a good time and met some cool people but the day went to crap quick. We were up on the tires at Cypress Gardens and got into Barryís Boat to do some riding and left my boat unattended (Blue 85 Nautique). Well we got back to my boat and an Ipod, Dell MP3 player, XM Inno, 04 137 Parks board with Split bindings, 03 (I think, it was a friends board) Byerly with suction bindings were all missing. Pretty pathetic. Yes it was my fault and take full blame but I thought I could trust my fellow wakeboarders. If anyone seeís any of the above around Winter Haven or saw anything suspicious around the boat let me know. The funny thing is they didnít take a wallet with $300 in it or the new Murray and Premier board. Go figure. Lessonís learned.

Duffy we had a good time. Let me know when you plan a trip up to Lake Weir and I will get a crew together and meet you up there.

Jeff I will pm you for more info on the gear. I can't believe some low life bastard did that. I will keep my eyes and ears open and if I find out who did it I will post the pics of his swollen face.
Damn I hate thieves!!

Jeff, it was nice to meet you and your crew. Sorry that happened. We'll keep an eye out for your stuff. Email me any pics you might have of the missing gear.

That blows. Not many thing piss me off more than someone stealing. Especially in an environment like that that is all riders. All I can say is what comes around goes around. Hopefully they will blow their knee out on that Parks. At least they didn't get your new Murdogg.

Well guys I mite be able to help you all out, I dont really feel like posting names on here because everybody and there mom has a account on here and not everybody needs to know who did this because we dont want anybody going out killin the bitch so if u all are interested in who did this PM me a lot of people run there mouths here in Winter Haven so I was the lucky one to find out how this happend and I'm not very happy, and I'm going to be taking care of this also, personaly. But I'm so sry jeff about this and it will be taking care of and I'm hopeing to get your stuff back, and I'm still getting more information on this I have other people I want to talk to, to find out for this for sure but I'm 110% for sure I know who did this.. Wakefest was cool weather we just need to advertise more and that wakefest in orlando kinda killed ours also because they had a competition with theres maybe we can working something out with that next year. Well all have to talk and decied if we want to do this again if we do we need to start now but I'm going to find out more about this problem that has happend and I'll let u know, again I'm sry that it had to happend on a special event but it will be worked out and promise that it wont happen again

Thanks for the help guys. I understand people make bad decisions and Iím not looking to get back at anyone. Any help would be great. Hey, if you guys are able to recover my stuff it would give me a great excuse to come visit the Chain O Lakes again to pick it up.

Ya Travis I was pretty shocked they didnít take the Murray. Go figure.

I'm on it. Give me a few days, Jeff. BTW, when you come get your gear, you can count on some pulls in my boat.

Sorry I missed the fun, but that sucks that happened. I always wonder when I leave my boat if the gear will end up missing? You guys are great in helping get the stuff back, kick his a**
Old    Byrd (byrd)      Join Date: Dec 2005       04-17-2007, 9:36 AM Reply   
Personally, I'd rather not know anything and would like the gear to just show up. No questions asked or answered. If that doesnt happen in a couple of days, you better believe we can raise it up a notch or two to see what happens...

You guys are much more tolerant and patient than I am. If these items were removed from my boat, and someone here knew who did it, the perp would be in custody of our law enforcement officials by now.
Old    Byrd (byrd)      Join Date: Dec 2005       04-17-2007, 11:33 AM Reply   
Tim, I dont know who did it, Paulie says he has an idea. I really just want to get the gear back without any hassles. When stuff like this happens, cooler heads usually prevail. That is the direction I want to try first. If you jump to conclusions without all the evidence, you will never get anything back. Plus, you have to have evidence to get the police involved. But that can happen if we dont get the stuff back in a day or so...
Old    Timothy (timmy)      Join Date: Jul 2001       04-17-2007, 11:39 AM Reply   
Well if someone says they are 110% sure they know who did it, then it probably is not a bad time to get the police involved. It is not about being a hot head and getting angry, it is about using the system that is in place to deal with criminals who choose to disrespect fellow wakeboarders.
Old    Byrd (byrd)      Join Date: Dec 2005       04-17-2007, 11:48 AM Reply   
Yes, but all the police are going to do is write up a report, tell you to talk to your insurance, and then they will go talk to the guy. Unless the guy has it at his house, car, etc. in plain view, when the police show up, what are they going to do? NOTHING!

Someone saying they know 110% and being able to prove it with evidence are two different things my friend.

Again, thanks for everyones help. If it gets returned, no questions asked and no more action taken. Simple as that.

Crushing his head, although maybe enjoyable, wont get the gear back...

Wow...you guys are unreal, I had counted it a loss. I owe you all big and much more than a beer or 5. How about a "Central Florida Wakefest - Gear Recovery Party". Let me know what your plans are for this weekend and we will hook up. Again thanks for the help. You guys have one of the most respectful crews and looking forward to riding with you all again.

This is good news. I spoke with Paulie a couple of nights ago and he informed me he was confident in recovering what was stolen. Good job Paulie! Jeff can't wait to hang out with you and your crew. We will definitely be out there this weekend as long as the weather is good.

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has helped out with this problem. I was with Jeff that day and it was my byerly board and dell dj that got taken. To who ever did it, if you took the stuff because of the water balloons sorry.(not) Just having some fun. Thought you guys were to have fun too. Had a blast other then that. Hope to get over all of this and come back soon. Thanks to everyone else for your hospitably. I hope we can still get the ipod back because if not I told the owner of it that i would buy him a new one because he wasn't even there.} He was just letting use it. Talk to everyone later. Thanks again.

I just got around to checking this site. Man Jeff that sucks...I had a few too many Sat. Long story short...I didn't see my phone sat night needless to say someone tucked me into bed placed all my stuff on the end table and pulled the sheets up.
I can not express enough thanks to everyone in winter haven!!!!!!
Everyone really helped me out with my boat!!!! Big ups Duffy who did most of the work putting the boat on off trailer..Billy didnt let me eat the tires...Kevin and his wife being DB's and Byrd running errands to pick up my friends.
All I'm saying is this is the best sport with best people the few bad apples..well I hope they get theirs...
Jimmy pm me I'll send you an ipod I don't use anymore.

Vince I know you won't remember it, but I woke you up on the dock Saturday night and it wasn't an easy task. I did watch you look for your phone for about 2 hours. Good time.

I spoke to Billy today and going to pick the gear up on Saturday. I cannot thank you guys enough. Looking forward to getting together again.

Yep that was us, we weren't much fun that night. You were funny as hell. We kept on waking you up....then you would fall back to sleep. Finally you stood up and it was scary....no chance in walking a strait line. Thanks for the good entertainment. All night it was...they stole my phone...why did they steal my phone...they can steal my boat...but not my phone. Good time.

I just picked up my stuff from Billy. I cannot thank you guys enough...Billy, Paulie, Barry, Duffy and whoever else help out on the recovery effort. It just proves there are still a few good people in the world.

Duffy I appreciate your call today. I didn't know anyone was going to be on the water today. I brought my stuff just incase...you just missed me by about an hour. I will plan a trip back over there in the next month or so to hang out....Drinks on me.

Vince I may have missed your "dance routine", but we were talking about you on our boat. I think someone said, "that guy hasn't quick dancing all day". Good times....

Sorry to hear about your lose Don. I am one of the few lucky one's that was able to recover there stuff.

Thanks again to the Chain O Lake crew.
