    This product is great, if used properly. And great customer service. It is the best towable inflatable we have ever found.Great Product – as good as it gets. And the company has ALWAYS made things right, if there ever was a problem. Great customer service. Our year-round summer camp & conference facility has been buying banana boat towables from Island Hopper 10+ years. Have gotten the smaller/lighter in-line or side-by-side bananas or red shark in the early years. Have also used the larger banana bus, as well. but have settled on the Banana Taxi for our operation. It has a better design than the banana boats, in our view, because the others tend to tow more nose-in to the water but the Taxi (& Bus) both tow nose-up and more on top of the water than the others. The Taxi has been extremely durable. Through 1,500+ riders per week, it stays inflated for multiple weeks at a time, when new. Only when they age, does it need to be re-inflated each week. A patch repair kit is supplied but, in 10 years, we have never once had to repair a hole in the thick fabric. The only minor issue has been if a rider strap breaks, which is rare. And the only major issue has been if the seam-welded tow straps tear. In past years, the attachment construction was not as strong as it is made now. An inexperienced boat driver could damage it with incorrect operation. I would suggest, that you always observe the operational instructions and speed limits that come with the banana or are posted on their website. (Boat drivers need to start slowly & gradually build up speed, never “pop” the rope or purposely try to knock riders off when turning, and never exceed 15 mph.) And, once we finally found a bunjee tow rope (made by Airhead) instead of a static rope, we have RARELY had a problem. Boat drivers have a much greater margin of error with a bunjee tow rope. Bottom line, the Banana Taxi product is great, if used properly.
