    Anyone around these parts have a ride report on Banjo quad? Got a twin Banjo and love it but wanna go back to a quad I think? Or just roll a Banana?

    I'm little hesitant on ES with crowds. Especially La Libertad area. Was last there in 2000. Drove there and It was my 1st year surfing. Gonna be vastly different I imagine when we visit this summer. But the total lack of any waves this time of year and the lowcost/ease from PR. to get there...

    Thanks all for the feedback! I've been wanting to hit Flores for awhile, but I had a feeling not a great choice with the Chica and you all cemented my concerns. Thinking Zunzal for half the trip then k59 the back half. Might try a Roca session or two as well.

    Hello ...Trying to plan a trip to Los Flores? Bringing my chic along that does surf. She's not a ripper and isn't aggressive at all in the lineup. Mid-Length rider. Just curious your apprehension on bringing the lady along?

    So finally got a pretty good resolution from XTR! They shaped & shipped me a new board at cost, and I had to ship the messed up one back via there shipping account. So not bad a bad outcome. Pretty stoked on the new board. Hope to rally it soon. Gotta say they came through.

    I find the Banjo to be a great fish. Have surfed it in all sorts of conditions. My main one has glass on keels. I'm 49 5'11 180wgt and in PR. Has a lot of range and have pushed its limits. It grovels great as well. Not as good as let's say a Flying Manta. I ride probably a little bigger than...

    They took my order very easily. Now.. 2 calls left VM no return call. Emailed received a response 5days later. Followed up with more pics and video as requested 11days ago. Still no response. I'm quite a distance away. Actually had good luck selling two used boards this week with no issues...

    They haven't really told me anything besides..."that's really concerning since the board looks brand new." That they would take care of me. But haven't heard what that entails?

    Noel Salad XTR10 review

    Yes I would be suspicious of this as well if a customer came to me with my scenario. Been around for awhile owned 50 plus boards treat them all the same and never have seen anything like this. Board in question been sitting in the garage since March/April along with 10 or so others. No problems...

    Received a response 8/15/23 that they would "take care of me on this issue." Followed up with some better video. Doesn't seem like I'm getting taken care of. I guess put this one in the regrettable YOLO decision category.

    Emailed XTR yesterday haven't received a response. Guess I'll give them a few days before I ring them up. Here's maybe some better pics & vid for inquiring minds. Also sent it to them. Just really odd bubbling. Never seen this on a board? https://photos.app.goo.gl/iLG1SXghTsk7AvDT7
