Bing Craftsman: Mick Rodgers

October 08, 2015

It’s installment four of our #BingCraftsman series and we are so proud to feature the one and only Mick Roders. Mick came to Bing Surfboards in 2010 not as an employee but as a talented surfer that we wanted in our lineup and soon thereafter joined us as an employee. Mick is in charge of quality control and packing here at Bing, which means that he is the last one to lay eyes and hands on your beautiful board before it arrives on your doorstep or local shop. Mick has his roots in the South Bay, the birth place of Bing Surfboards and is a perfect fit here (in fact we like him so much that he got his own pro-model longboard, appropriately named the Mr. Rodgers Model). He is humble and quiet but has a quirky side once you get to know him. He focuses on enjoying the simple things in life rather than trying to “keep up with the Joneses”. He’d rather do what he enjoys, surf everyday and experience life with his close friends. Mick is a member of the #VanLife community, traveling, living, and surfing out of his sweet Ford camper conversion van and is an all around first class guy. So here’s to you Mick, #BingCraftsman. Thanks for all you do!

Bing Sano Day in November
Bing Sano Day in November

November 12, 2021

Every once in a while, the Bing crew shakes off the foam dust, and shows up to San Onofre State Beach to test some new designs, hang, eat some tacos, and sip a beer or two. In November, the sun can shine bright, and warm you up after a chilly dawn patrol. If the winds cooperate, you can have glassy conditions all the way til dark. Matt and Margaret know this, so we closed the doors at the shop, and kicked it in the sand for the day. Photos and words by Paul Nett.

Silver Spoon's Pilgrimage North
Silver Spoon's Pilgrimage North

October 14, 2021

While so much of cold water surfing is filled with novelty surfs and hours warming up at coffee shops, this trip was different in that we scored nearly every single day for 10 days straight. That's pretty unheard of on Iceland's windy, rough and rugged coastline.
