Is it squelching only at the start of compression or all the way down the fork?

You might not be far off 50 hours first mini service Frank. Might be worth doing and this will sort it out surely

thanks lads, @Glen, the squelching is mostly at the end
@Pawel, I guess that the shop is the sensible choice :-)

If it's at the end it's probably more than likely that air got into the oil!! Just as Pawel said, a lower service should sort it out!!
