My 9'10" Bing Elevator is by far my most favorite longboard I have ever had.
A close second would be the foam board I learned to surf on.

Anyways, the Elevator has a slight step deck in the nose/tail and that means lifted noserides and clean turns. The board is a technical rider, but when you get the hang of it... you never want to ride another longboard! The Elevator is that good. Great job Chris and Matt, on making another classic creation.

The guys in the factory do an incredible job of making these longboards surf insane and look insane!! We are very grateful for all of you in the board building process. Bing surfboards would not be here today without all of you.

So from all us surfers that ride bing boards, we say Thank You!! And the last thing, I want to give a shout out to Paul Nett for helping Ryan and I further this vision / make it into a series.

Hope you enjoy! - Will Allen

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.

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
