Bing Craftsman: Adam Cap

September 30, 2015

We’re going to start a new little photo series here to introduce some of the incredible craftsman we have here at Bing Surfboards, and we’re going to call it #BingCraftsman (you can follow along on Instagram or Facebook if you’d like as well)

This is Adam Cap. Adam is the Production Manager here, which basically means that he does everything. At 16, Adam was living up in South Bay Los Angeles and riding a few of Matt Calvani’s shapes when Matt asked if he could come in to help trace some templates and do some basic sanding. Well it worked out well, fast forward 10 years and Adam is still here (even after moving the entire production factory with Matt and @theshaperswife from the South Bay here to Encinitas, California). On any given day you if you cruise into the Bing Factory, you will see Adam, most likely in khakis and a white t-shirt covered in dust, making sure that everything that leaves these walls meets our incredibly high standards. So, here’s to Adam, #bingcraftsman. Thanks for all you do!

THE LEGEND OF TOOTHLESS JOE

Working with Bing is so much more than I ever expected out of “work”. The entire Bing team has not only pushed me to be as creative as I can be, but it’s given me a sense of family in a new place. I have moved all over the world in my life and I’ve never felt such a warm welcome before. Their collective positivity and warmness has brought me so much inspiration in the few months that I’ve had the pleasure to work with them. I can’t wait to see where these friendships will take us all. I’d like to give a special shout out to a guy who’s inspiring positive attitude and willingness to give a random toothless guy from Delaware a chance, Grey Lockwood aka “Team Dad”

I surfed the Church + Middles zone a lot when I was in San Clemente. I definitely clocked a few magic sessions in that part of the coast. I have always kinda been allergic to the crowd factor in California…. But this season I feel like I had a few sessions that felt like I was in the Baja. Maybe 6 people out… all smiles and good vibes. So many waves! We did a morning meet up with the Bing crew and absolutely scored… glassy perfect waves. That was a standout session for sure. When I was staying in Venice I was surfing Malibu, which never felt like Baja, with 600 of my best friends or heading up the coast to Ventura to surf the beachies or Rincon. It’s always kinda fun to get into the mix at the Bu. You just have to think of surfing as a completely different activity. It’s more of a happy hour vibe all the time.
