A little message from CDM…

Bella Vita is a film centered around the Italian surf culture and the magic that surrounds this boot shaped land. Over the last 15 years I have been traveling the globe in search of waves, inspiration and adventure. As I’ve aged and experienced life’s ups and downs, it has become clear that one’s friends, family and roots should be kept high priority. I’ve dreamt of a time where I could reconnect with my childhood years spent in Italy and adventure through new zones in hopes of discovering waves and the characters that ride them. Over the last few month’s, our group has experienced amazing Italian hospitality, age old creations and some really fun surfing. Dave Rastovich and Lauren Hill have been with us for the last month and as they prepare to leave, the Coffin brothers are about to embark on their first trip through their blood lines. It is a great honor to have Jason Baffa and team helping to capture and tell this story on classic 35 mm film.  If you’re interested in the progress of this film please follow us on   facebook at http://www.facebook.com/BellaVitaFilm   Aloha, Chris 111

It was the allure of the California Coast in summer that reunited us. The days that stretched on well into the evening, a warmed Pacific Ocean where spring suits felt like enough and shimmering blue-green waves that tumbled onto shore so consistently they felt almost mechanical. Such lucid memories were enough for the three of us, who lived across the country, to reunite in San Diego and prepare for seven days of surfing twice a day up the coast with a couple of Bing Surfboards in tow. The board models we brought were the 9’6” Levitator, the 9’4” Continental and the 9’2” Pocket Knife.

At just 22 years old and hailing from a place not known for its surf quality, new Bing ambassador Trip Chandler has put together quite an impressive visual resume riding longboards. In between finishing up college courses you can either find this kid holding a single fin log or a fishing pole, but never without a big grin on his face.
