The BING Pigformer subtly mixes maximum trim time and maneuverability. This makes the small days feel like a stroll around town on your favorite beach cruiser. But don't be fooled, get the Pigformer in any conditions, from 1ft to overhead, you will be flying down the line! I rode an 8'0" Bing Pigformer 2+1 with a 7.5" Bing Pivot Flex fin.

On the other hand, the BING Stubbie is a board that can engage on rail like a hot knife through butter. Whether you want to hit the whitewash on an end section or throw down a grab rail carve, this board does it all. I rode a 7'6" BING Stubbie. I used a 7.5" Bing Pivot Flex Fin.

These two boards are recent additions to the Bing lineup and they attest to Matt's creative gift in innovative board design. This was also the first session Ryan and I filmed, big thanks to Ryan for working hard on filming and editing this project. Also thanks to Paul Nett for helping us further create the "Bing Series Vision".

Hope you all enjoy it. - Will Allen

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.
