A local kitesurfer needs your help to get his gear back.
Victoria’s Larry Dennis – who made waves in 2012 by becoming the first ever kitesurfer to clear the Ogden Point breakwater – had approximately $15,000 worth of kitesurfing equipment stolen from his motor home on April 19th between 2:00 am and 6:30 am.
At the time, the motor home was parked in front of Sound Advice at Blanshard St and Caledonia Ave.
The suspect behind the theft was caught on camera (see photo), but has yet to be identified.
“He spent a lot of time getting it, as he had to make a few trips,” Dennis told Victoria Sports News. “He did a good job of picking the lock and locking the motorhome back up again.”
A reward of $500 “no questions asked” is being offered to anyone who can get the gear back to Larry.
The surveillance video, which reportedly captured the entire theft, has been handed over by Sound Advice to Victoria Police.
