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.

Working with Bing is so much more than I ever expected out of “work”. The entire Bing team has not only pushed me to be as creative as I can be, but it’s given me a sense of family in a new place. I have moved all over the world in my life and I’ve never felt such a warm welcome before. Their collective positivity and warmness has brought me so much inspiration in the few months that I’ve had the pleasure to work with them. I can’t wait to see where these friendships will take us all. I’d like to give a special shout out to a guy who’s inspiring positive attitude and willingness to give a random toothless guy from Delaware a chance, Grey Lockwood aka “Team Dad”

On a Saturday afternoon Bing and David gave a group of friends, surfers, surf historians and surf-stoked groms fascinating insights into what it was like surfing and building surfboards in Hermosa Beach in the 60’s and into the 70’s.

I surfed the Church + Middles zone a lot when I was in San Clemente. I definitely clocked a few magic sessions in that part of the coast. I have always kinda been allergic to the crowd factor in California…. But this season I feel like I had a few sessions that felt like I was in the Baja. Maybe 6 people out… all smiles and good vibes. So many waves! We did a morning meet up with the Bing crew and absolutely scored… glassy perfect waves. That was a standout session for sure. When I was staying in Venice I was surfing Malibu, which never felt like Baja, with 600 of my best friends or heading up the coast to Ventura to surf the beachies or Rincon. It’s always kinda fun to get into the mix at the Bu. You just have to think of surfing as a completely different activity. It’s more of a happy hour vibe all the time.
