Anna Ehrgott + Collector + Sunfish in Mexico

Mexico sings sweetly in your ear whenever the winter mornings feel a little too crisp, or the spring winds a little too relentless. I’ll never understand how just south of the border, the surf conditions can be that much more superior, but alas. Offshore all day, pumping right point breaks and all the empty beach break peaks you could ever want. Welcome to where you’re gonna get surfed out.

A few friends and I headed down for the beginning of south swell season and were delighted to find ourselves triple seshing, burning to a crisp in the hot sun and happening upon perfect point breaks I'd never heard of before. Often taking boats, hikes or long paddles in order to escape the other wave-hungry backpackers. I brought two of the Bing Surf Shop demo boards: the 5'8" Sunfish for the beachies and the 7'6" Collector which was my board of choice for the point breaks. The Collector lived up to it's name - I could milk the inside then paddle out for a couple leg burner set waves. The board flew- connecting sections, making it through flat spots and being all around really fun-to-surf board. If you had to surf one board forever (or just bring one board on surf trip), this would be a solid choice.

The Sunfish was nimble and quick. Paddled into waves better than I was expecting and thankfully helped me duck dive under some closeouts that I wanted nothing to do with.

A good amount of the crew (myself excluded) extending for another week to surf the following swell, which Surfline dubbed “La Bomba”. I don’t think I could have surfed any more if I tried. It felt good to come home to the fog and let my sunburned eyes settle after a week of perfect lines coming in from the horizon. God it feels good to be surfed out.

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

We met in 1949 hanging on the rail of the Manhattan Beach pier watching Velzy and the older guys surfing planks and paddle boards on the waves below.  That was our introduction to  surfing, and the surfer life, that consumed us both for the next seventy plus years.  Even though we were competitors in the surfboard business we’ve always remained close friends and best buddies. Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland

Eric Diamond, or "E.D.", as most of us know him, has deep roots that started back when his father, Daryl Diamond, drove the Clark Foam delivery truck with Eric riding shotgun. 

Fast forward to today, Eric did a couple of designs for us here at Bing; "Waves of Change" and "Planer". They obviously reflect his passion for the transitional period. We are thrilled to have him as a Bing Ambassador / Artist and are proud to present his work for your enjoyment.
