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.

Anna Ehrgott Collector Bing 

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.

Alex Patrick is an artist in every sense of the word. He is well versed in still photography and cinematography, has a true love for cinema, and will travel to the ends of the earth to find the perfect shot. But, the thing we appreciate most about him is that he’s not in a hurry. Unlike most new-age digital content creators, he believes in the process and could care less about any deadline or being a part of any new social media trend. His imagery has a subtle hint of romance that stems from his unwavering love for light in all forms. Alex has been a part of the Bing family for quite a few years, so we decided to sit down with him and see what he’s been up to…

With the impending doom of a long, cold California winter upon us a few of the Bing crew decided to head south for a few days. As soon as we crossed into Tijuana through the CBX we could immediately feel the beginnings of a very special few days ahead. As any surfer knows, the beauty of Mexico lies not only in the perfect waves and golden beaches, but also within the generosity and welcoming smiles of all who inhabit this amazing country.

Since the opening of the first Bing shop in Leucadia in 2013, becoming a part of the local surf community has been our main goal. Over the years we’ve hosted dozens of events all centered around two things... our love for surfing and bringing the community together. Whether it’s a new board model release party, an art show, or a charitable event we have always found that keeping our gatherings open to the public and heavily attended by the local surf tribe is something you can’t put a price on.
