BING 60TH Celebration + Video Premiere of 'THINK BING' at Surfing Heritage and Culture Center
On July 25th, Bing Surfboards celebrated 60 Years of Craftsmanship at the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center in San Clemente, CA with a sold-out crowd! The house was packed, with standing room only viewing of the surf documentary, 'THINK BING' by Bryce Lowe White. Thanks to Zio Baffa Wines and Duck Foot Beer for supplying the libations, matched with amazing tacos to keep the belly full.
'THINK BING' focuses in on key players and events during the history of Bing Surfboards. Candid interviews with Greg Noll, Duke Boyd, Bing Copeland, Chris Del Moro, Matt & Margaret Calvani, Campbell Brothers, Mike Eaton, David Rastovich, and Lauren Hill speak volumes. Keeping the stoke, the film also is full of historical surf film clips mixed in with the new featuring those that have ridden Bing boards the best for 60 years.
Also on display, were 6 handmade replica boards made by Matt Calvani, with the help of the amazing crew at our factory, as well as Sam Cody putting down beautiful resin panels, and Jim Phillips carving out beautiful fins.
