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.
We were driving at night and thus had already broken one of just two rules we made before crossing the southern border. It wasn’t really our fault. A long construction delay due to recent landslides held us up for over an hour. We passed white crosses on the winding downhill, marking those who’s brakes gave way or tequila got the best of them.
Thanks to all that made it to the Boardroom Show in Del Mar, and to our Bing Surf Shop re-opening party! Lot's of good friends came out to enjoy food by Bird's Eye Kitchen and beers by Saint Archer. We also premiered the movie trailer for our 60th Anniversary documentary series filmed and edited by Bryce Lowe White. Stay tuned for our event at SHAAC in San Clemente in July and our video premiere at Oceanside Surf Museum in August!
Commemorating 60 Years of Craftsmanship, Bing Surfboards is releasing a 3 part documentary series featuring key people in the history of this iconic surf company. Bryce Lowe White is responsible for this extensive project, and to get a taste of what's to come in July, we have this trailer to get you excited. We will be showing the documentary series at SHAAC in July as well, so be sure to stay tuned for more information.
