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!

WHAT MAKES A MEMORY?

I took these photos on a trip that involved two kids as they puked what appeared to be decomposed avocados into my hair, being awakened twice by spiders crawling on me in bed, showering willy nilly with a scorpion and slamming my neck on a concrete skate ramp.

Bing rider Anna Gudauskas isn't one to sit still for too long. Travelling to remote waves in cold climates seems to be an addiction of sorts. Although the temps are below freezing, seeing waves peel off with no one around is enough to warm up her big smile. Check out the photos by Sarah Lee.
