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!

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.

This winter was hard. Was it for you? Did you get good waves? Did you have big, life-shifting moments? Even if you were in Southern California it was really wintery. The weight of the cold months weighed on me like the snow itself. The deep, heavy puddles didn’t empty until just recently.
