2 years in the making, the new Bing Surf Shop is now a reality. Royce Cansler in conjunction with Matt and Margaret at Bing Surfboards have worked to open a new retail location down the street from their Factory in Encinitas. The premise was to make a surf shop that once again focused on the surfboard.
“When I was 13 years old my dad would take me to the Bing Shop in Hermosa Beach after surfing 22nd St. or the Redondo Breakwater. Like most surfers, the anticipation of seeing, holding and touching the latest shapes was hard to contain. Single brand surf shops were the order of the day, and the passion and excitement of surfing and the surfboards we rode were the focus. It is this element we wanted to rekindle in the Bing Shop of today, passion and focus on surfing and surfboards…” – Royce Cansler
The turnout was a who’s who of surfboard shapers with the likes of Matt Calvani, Bing Copeland, Lance Carson, Gene Cooper, Mike Hynson, Roger Hinds, Bill Shrosbee, Jimmy Phillips, Bob Mitsven, Jed Noll, Jon Wegener, Gary Larson, Donny Brink, Manny Caro, Christine Brailsford and Pendo. It was awesome to see the surfboard shaping community out in full force supporting the new Bing Surf Shop. The Bing family was stoked and honored to have such a turnout.
Everyone enjoyed the food by Mozy’s and the beer by The Lost Abbey and Longboard Island Lager. The music was provided by Rich Knight laying down smooth guitar riffs that fit the night perfectly. Overall it was a great night to celebrate surfboards and the Southern California surfing culture.

Alex Patrick is an artist in every sense of the word. He is well versed in still photography and cinematography, has a true love for cinema, and will travel to the ends of the earth to find the perfect shot. But, the thing we appreciate most about him is that he’s not in a hurry. Unlike most new-age digital content creators, he believes in the process and could care less about any deadline or being a part of any new social media trend. His imagery has a subtle hint of romance that stems from his unwavering love for light in all forms. Alex has been a part of the Bing family for quite a few years, so we decided to sit down with him and see what he’s been up to…

With the impending doom of a long, cold California winter upon us a few of the Bing crew decided to head south for a few days. As soon as we crossed into Tijuana through the CBX we could immediately feel the beginnings of a very special few days ahead. As any surfer knows, the beauty of Mexico lies not only in the perfect waves and golden beaches, but also within the generosity and welcoming smiles of all who inhabit this amazing country.
