14th Annual Leucadia Artwalk 2018 at Bing Surf Shop

August 23, 2018

Leucadia will be alive and happening this Sunday, August 26th. All along the 101 highway from La Costa Ave. to Encinitas Blvd, events and local art will be on display. At Bing Surf Shop, we have some fun stuff going on that should help get you to come down and take it all in!

 

The Art of the Surfboard

LIVE BOARD ART

Scott Bass of the Board Room will be on hand to guide attendees through the evolution of a surfboard, from blank ( supplied by Millenium Foam) to a finished Bing Surfboard. Scott will be talking story and answering all your shaping related questions.

Marissa Quinn and Jeff Meyer, celebrated board artists from Leucadia will be live painting as part of the interactive exhibit. Come watch two boards come to life before your eyes! Both blanks are donated by Millennium Foam. One board is shaped by Bing and the other by Leucadian Ryan Sakal of Aryse Surfboards. 

Both boards are up for raffle for $5 at Bing on the day of the event at $10 afterwards. Visit the Jeff Meyer board at Surfy Surfy 974 N. Coast Hwy 101 and the Marissa Quinn board at Bing 802 N. Coast Hwy 101 for the month of September.

COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY ART PROJECT

Leucadians with photos, objects, swag, t-shirts, logos, stickers and tools from our board building roots are encouraged to bring their artifacts to the interactive photo booth at Bing Surfboards during LeucadiART Walk between 10 am and 5pm. We’ll photograph you with your favorite boards, Stonesteps contest shirts, see the tools of our board building past and hear about anything else that plays a part in our funky off-beat past.

Come down to Bing Surf Shop and browse the images of other artifacts to see what is unearthed. All the photos and stories will be compiled into a community art project! Come tell your stories of yore and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.

LIVE PAINTING

Leucadia local and world-renowned artist, Andy Davis, will be live painting a surf-inspired mural that captures surfing’s artistic side on the south wall of Bing’s building! ( Weather permitting - he is in Hawaii at the moment and Hurricane Lane is delaying flights in and out )

Any kind of travel allows for the landscape you know to slowly fade into the distance, while something else comes into view. The residue of your daily life slowly melts away as you walk or sail or glide towards whatever is waiting for you.

LADY CRUZ

It was the allure of the California Coast in summer that reunited us. The days that stretched on well into the evening, a warmed Pacific Ocean where spring suits felt like enough and shimmering blue-green waves that tumbled onto shore so consistently they felt almost mechanical. Such lucid memories were enough for the three of us, who lived across the country, to reunite in San Diego and prepare for seven days of surfing twice a day up the coast with a couple of Bing Surfboards in tow. The board models we brought were the 9’6” Levitator, the 9’4” Continental and the 9’2” Pocket Knife.

WHAT A TRIP
WHAT A TRIP

At just 22 years old and hailing from a place not known for its surf quality, new Bing ambassador Trip Chandler has put together quite an impressive visual resume riding longboards. In between finishing up college courses you can either find this kid holding a single fin log or a fishing pole, but never without a big grin on his face.
