Noosa, QLD, Australia – Mr. Bing Copeland along with Matt Calvani, head shaper of Bing Surfboards will make their first visit to Australia this March for the Noosa Festival of Surfing (March 14-21, 2010). Bing Surfboards will have a booth display, courtesy of Australian distributors California Surf Imports, at the “OURS” Surf Expo in Lions Park Noosa, adjacent to Hastings Street and a short walk from the main event site at First Point.
Calvani explains, “It’s an exciting time for us at Bing Surfboards in part because of the opportunity to share our surfboard designs and concepts with surfers from all over the world, especially Australia where there is already such a rich history in surfing and surfboard design.”
Bing Surfboards will display a wide-range of surfboard models, all of which are built in its Southern California based factory. Bing Copeland will also be available to sign his recently launched biography, Bing Surfboards – 50 Years of Craftsmanship and Innovation.

When I started traveling years ago I noticed how my surfing improved. Some people ask me what my favorite wave is in the entire world and I always pause and think for a moment. Although it’s hard to choose an all-time favorite, I always think of my time spent in Australia.
