Dang, never heard of this one before. Let us know if you get any details as to what the issue is... I hope you guys have quick turn around so you can get back to enjoying the float life.

RE: XR shuts off with a click, bad customer service
RE: New Rider - First Pushback
Yeah it's well done and doesn't require you to hear it, making it great when you are listening to music or in traffic.
Careful with the water on your XR... water damage highlighted in the manual. Recommend you wait before charging at the least if you are exposing the board to water.
RE: Securing OW from powering on
So you’d leave your board outside without a physical lock on it? I’d strongly recommend always securing it if you do need to leave it out of sight. Too easy to pick up and run/walk away with.
The only people that would know your OW wasn’t rideable would be another OW owner. Likewise, how many people have been able to jump on your board and starting riding well enough to flee a crime scene? If someone is riding off with your board it sounds like another OW owner
RE: Better Nosedive Warning
Have you ridden an EUC with the voice speaking "slow down" when you hit the max speed? haha... no thanks.
The issue here is in loud traffic or for people who are hard of hearing, etc... push back works. it's physical.
I still find it hard to believe a beep that happens as your nose diving will help. If the board beeped at 14-15 mph, people would still push past it... after that you're on your own.
RE: flat tire risks?
The OW tire comes with "tire Slime" in it from the factory. It can completely seal small holes in your tire and when you finally wear through it, you'll start seeing it seep out.
I got a nail in my tire which required an automotive tire patch to fix. I put another few hundred miles on my tire and it's been great. Slime is a good preventative measure to take but any other repair requires deflating and inflating your tire again and my not be practical to carry. You can find some pretty slick small rechargable bike pumps on Amazon also.
RE: Why are fenders so expensive?
Can't get to the website right now but TheFloat.Life (@jeffmccosker 's company) has created a cheap flexible fender that doesn't take more than a couple minutes with zero tools to install / remove.

RE: Do I need float plates or rail protectors?
@jackiemoon opinions are rarely changed via the internet!
My OW+ took a beating when I first got it and I let a dumb friend try it who did more damage in 5 minutes than I had in 100 miles... I know it's cosmetic, but it's an expensive toy for me and I don't mind keeping it looking fresh.
I didn't take my XR out on the street until my plates and sidekicks were installed. It will remain clean looking for life... just my preference.
Oh yeah and I have dents in my float plates from off roading, so I know I've gotten my money's worth and then some.
