This last weekend’s Boardroom Show reflected what was and what should be! The upbeat crowd filled the aisles early Saturday morning as exhibitors stood in their booths filled with the latest designs and technologies for furthering enjoyment of the wave riding experience.
Minutes before the show opened, I wondered how it would turnout. We were ready, with 12 spectacular Bing Surfboards on display and racks ready for surfers to examine the board of their choice. Bing himself was there, ready to sign our Bing book for anyone who cared to pick it up and have it autographed, and we had a pleasant silent confident feeling that it was going to be good.
The sounds of planers mowing foam fired up and we were off. Within an hour we were swamped, burning through Bing books so fast our initial projection of book sales for both days would be passed by noon. Friends like Jock Sutherland, Peter Schroff, Jamie and Kate Sterling, Steve Pezman, Randy Rarick were stopping to see Bing and Matt. Hawaiian dealer, Dennis Kirk from Surfboards Factory Hawaii on Oahu was checking out the new Izzy Rider 2, Levitator 2 and Pintail Lightweight 2 along with the new Slalom… It was really fun to see everyone in good spirits, laughing, talking story and exchanging high fives like the old days.
I really enjoyed manning the Bing Surfboards booth at the Boardroom Surf Show this year. I signed dozens of Bing books and got to catch up with many old friends, plus make some new ones. There was a large crowd and everyone seemed to be having a great time! I didn’t get to walk around much because I had a hard time getting away from our booth. It’s great to see so many people still excited about surfboard building and the culture surrounding the sport. Everyone I talked to said the Icons of Foam shaping contest was great, all the shapers were very talented, and the judging by Roger Hinds, Timmy Patterson, and Pat Rawson was very fair. I truly enjoyed myself and I’m looking forward to coming down again next year to see everyone again!
