Spork:
Favorite shortboard I have ever owned. Perfect mix of a fish and a high performance quad. Board goes heaps fast and turns like a hot knife through butter. Not many people know how awesome this board is. Custom orders are the way to go!! - Will Allen

6'4" Channel Twin Prototype:
Matt made this style of prototype for Chris Del Moro last year and I immediately thought the board looked insane. So I asked Matt if I could get one shaped and he made me a 6”4 twin fin loaded with pure fun. This board surfed well in any size or condition. I even rode it in Hawaii. This board proves that Matt is not just a longboard shaper. He can shape any board for any condition. Let him know what board you are dreaming and thinking of because he’s got a board for you. - 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

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.
