He instantly made it clear that he is easy going and more than willing to hang for some shop talk. Being that I have read some of the ‘Bing Surfboards’ book by Paul Holmes, hearing him spill the details of the early Bing days was more than entertaining.

If you are interested in learning about Bing and over 50 years of Bing Surfboards, check out the Bing Surfboards book by Paul Holmes. Endless hours of history and imagery to keep you stoked for days.

It was a pleasure to have Bing Copeland come by the shop for a visit! Bing was in San Diego for short while to pay respects to longtime friend Larry Gordon.

Although the conditions of his visit were not ideal, he still made time to visit the Bing shop in Encinitas ( Leucadia ). It was my first time meeting him, and I was a bit nervous to meet and talk to such a legend.

We are planning another event at the Bing Shop in the near future, and we will be inviting Bing to join. Hopefully you can make it, and have a chance to meet him yourself. In the meantime, read up on the book, and be ready to talk shop when you show up!

It's up to us to raise awareness and do our part to keep our beaches and oceans clean. #plasticfreevanlife
