Surf school van looted in newquay!

Looks like the van got stuck on the beach as the tide came in because of beach users & it was looted in the night!

Naughty to loot it. As they said, unbecoming of the stereotypical surfer ethos, one would of thought.

Anything left unsecure these days will be stripped/looted/stolen/trashed when you come back for it.

Long gone.

Rant coming. Parts of the North coast have been heading towards benefit central for a while. Think about it. A single Mum on benefits is highly mobile, a national benefits system, no job and housing arranged where ever she decides to pitch up.
A surf town in North Cornwall has a great deal of appeal when compared to the arse end of a Northern council estate.

Get the picture?

Our south coast kids can be at the receiving end of all sorts of nastiness in the water if they should pitch up on the wrong wave at the wrong time.

Nice try by the RNLI trying to tow the land rover! Can't believe how people would steal stuff like that from there

people, What bastards, Particularly frustrating as it seems that it only got stuck because people refused to move and let the truck leave

Not uncommon nowadays even some lifeboat stations can have difficulty trying to wind there way down a beach when it's busy ,
(Not on about D class boats but all weather Mersey class boats ).

Not wishing to diminish the fact that kit was stolen, this smacks of a plonker showing off in his tricked up Landy, thinking he can go anywhere & getting royally stuck. Next thing he's blaming everyone but himself for his mis-fortune. If I'd been stuck & could have got out, but people were in the way, I'd have run the feckers over.
