Artist Susan Wickstrand & Her Custom Bing

May 11, 2015

Last week Artist Susan Wickstrand came by the Bing Surfboards factory to put the final touches on her 100% custom 9’4″ Bing Pintail. Bing Surfboards owner and head shaper, Matt Calvani, shaped the board before Susan’s artwork was glassed into it. Just before the final gloss and polish Susan came by hand painted her final touches. Matt then signed and numbered the board on the stringer, before Susan put her signature on the tail. It was really special to see so many talented people come together to create such a beautiful piece of surf art. The board is now off on a world tour. It was premiered this past weekend here in Encinitas, before jetting off to The Greenroom Festival in Japan, and then finally Hawaii. Whew!

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.

It goes without saying that everyone needs a break from reality sometimes. Luckily, for all of us here at Bing Surfboards that break comes in the form of mandatory surf days a few times a year. We spend our lives making or selling surfboards, so getting the chance to surf together is special on so many levels. Recently we had the chance to get the gang together and here’s how it went.
