Visitor Reviews of Banyons

Stinger from UNITED STATES writes:

Leave this place alone. Let the young rippas surf there. They're around 10 to 14 years old, and they're better than you will ever be. This is their place, so let them keep it.

Check out the review for local attitude - enough said. Even the older kama'aina leave this place for the younger ones. Just can't take, take, take all da time, brah. Let this one go and move on to the next spot.
