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!
Bing Rider Will Allen in a short video by Cameron Nelligan titled 'Sleeping Tacos'. Will is riding a 9'9" Bing BN Lightweight. The BN Lightweight Model is a lighter weight version of the Original Bing Noserider.
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!
