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!

Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

We met in 1949 hanging on the rail of the Manhattan Beach pier watching Velzy and the older guys surfing planks and paddle boards on the waves below.  That was our introduction to  surfing, and the surfer life, that consumed us both for the next seventy plus years.  Even though we were competitors in the surfboard business we’ve always remained close friends and best buddies. Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland

Artist Spotlight: Eric "E.D." Diamond

Eric Diamond, or "E.D.", as most of us know him, has deep roots that started back when his father, Daryl Diamond, drove the Clark Foam delivery truck with Eric riding shotgun. 

Fast forward to today, Eric did a couple of designs for us here at Bing; "Waves of Change" and "Planer". They obviously reflect his passion for the transitional period. We are thrilled to have him as a Bing Ambassador / Artist and are proud to present his work for your enjoyment.
