BING CONTINTENTAL

I have been developing this model with Matt Calvani for some time now. I haven't been this excited about a noserider model in ages. Currently bumped up to a 10 footer which I am riding in this session ( from my usual 9'8" ), and the thing is insane on the nose. The glide and hold on the nose is the perfect combo, even in challenging conditions at locations not normally considered a 'longboard wave'. - Mick Rodgers

BING DHARMA

One of the best sellers in the BING lineup designed by Chris Del Moro and Matt Calvani, this bird can be your go-to shortboard in all conditions. It carries speed and allows for tight rail turns in the pocket. The round nose just looks cool too, it probably won't poke your eye out. The quad set up is like jet boosters! The fins, volume, and bottom design project you through the flats with ease. Hannah is riding my board in the video, she just got a 5'2" version of this board and we can't wait to see her absolutely rip that thing in an upcoming "BING SESSION". She rides all boards incredibly well. Last thing, I highly recommend trying this board at the BING SURF SHOP. They have a couple on the demo program that would help you get out in the water and have fun! - Will Allen

BING SUNFISH

The good ol' Sunfish. Such a sick board! Dave Rastovich put has put this board to the test ( Watch the SUNFISH videos on our VIMEO CHANNEL ). The Sunfish is a bit more high-performance than say our Concave Keel Model. This high-performance fish allows for tighter turns and quick off the lips. Depending on what fins you like to ride, the board can take on different characteristics based on looseness and drive. Don't hesitate to put this board on a rail! Off the bottom, top, or mid-face turns excel with speed and control. - Will Allen

The Bing Sunfish is such an all around fun board. The shape is great for drawn out turns and has an extra push for getting around sections. I feel like I just tasted a little of what it can do and want to try it out again! - Hannah Van Veen

BING PIG PIN

Hannah and I wanted to switch it up near the end of the session, after chasing burgers during the session. The Pig Pin changed our perspective of the mushy bunny slopes. It goes insanely fast and turns on a dime. I call it a 'mini glider'. That might be an incorrect statement design-wise, but the board's trim ability is next level. Also, this specific board in the video is my dads, personal model. So thanks dad for letting us ride it! He surfs this board way better than me too! - Will Allen

On a recent session with Will and Mick I was Board swapping with Will and was able to try his Pig Pin. It is perfect for the California summer south swell with its easy paddling and graceful bottom turns. I had so much fun on it and didn’t end up giving it back till we got out of the water! - Hannah Van Veen

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.

With new wave pool parks opening up around the world, it's possible to get waves in places you wouldn't expect to. A few of our Bing family members have had the chance to get some Bing Surfboards under their feet at land locked wave parks you may be eager to surf. The parks actually produce waves that rival the quality of your local home break. The feedback from each family member can help you know what Bing to ride at a wave park near you.
