BING SURF SHOP – Krochet Kids

Krochet Kids
The folks from Krotchet Kids made it down to the Bing Surf Shop last Saturday to hang and spread the message of what they are doing to help women in Peru and Northern Uganda. It was a sunny day filled with great stories and smiles as experiences where shared. Krochet Kids is a unique company that creates a way to provide jobs, education and empowerment for people who otherwise have little or no alternative opportunities. We all want and need great clothing and there are a lot of choices out there. What if we could positively impact people by simply purchasing a beanie or shirt? Krochet Kids offer this opportunity.

When you purchase a Krochet Kids item you support a company that works to provide these opportunities to women many miles away. It’s not a hand out but a way to support a system built to provide positive change. Every item produced by Krochet Kids is hand signed and labeled by each woman who makes that item. You know exactly who put their hands and heart into that piece you are wearing. Although this won’t solve all the problems it’s many steps in the right direction. We here at Bing proudly support and carry Krochet Kids products at the Bing Surf Shop. If you get a chance check out their website and see what they offer and what they do.

We were blessed to spend some time with some of the great people who make this all happen. We hope you think about Krochet Kids next time you’re looking for your next clothing item.

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.

Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft. 

When and where did you start surfing? Describe your first surfboard.

I started surfing when I was about 15 in Virginia Beach, and my first board was an old funboard from WRV that was about 7’6” and had glass on thrusters and an insane airbrush.

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
