I am looking for a mid-length board that I can still do tighter turns, a cutback...or two (yeah right) but seriously I would love to glide in early and steal waves when it's a bit crowded when I don't feel like riding a longboard. I dig their boards, having owned a longboard by them for a while and borrowed a twin fish and funboard in the past. They have a nice heavy feel. Has anyone out there owned or ridden their Bandito shape or something like it? Thanks

Madadors are "tribute" boards-they basically clone vintage or note worthy sticks and put their name on it. I wanted a log and picked up a Matador "El Gato" which is clone of a Greg Noll "Da Cat". We'll made, hand shaped and not $3,000..
The only think I would advise is try to get one on CL, they resell for half of retail.

I have a bandito, love it super fun and easy to ride. my go to board 90% of the time. mine is 6' though but I have ridden the 7'4 and that was a great l.b. alternative. also fun. plan on getting one in the 7-8 foot range in the spring.
