Why ride for Bing? I've always loved the iconic Bing brand ever since I was a kid; watching films from the 60s some of the greatest surfers rode Bing surfboards. Over the last few years I've been lucky enough to ride some amazing Bing models and I was super stoked to get the chance to ride for them!
Why boards by Matt Calvani? Every board I've had from Matt has been so amazingly crafted and he is one of the most skilled and innovative shapers around. I'm looking forward to trying any future models that Matt designs!
