Bing Surfboards is pleased to welcome environmental advocate, writer, and film-maker, Lauren Hill, to our team and family. Lauren is a Florida native, now living in Byron Bay, Australia where she pursues her passion for surfing, environmental science and a “thoughtful engagement with life.” In addition to being the creator of 31 Days / 31 Ways, a short-film series documenting the love and art of wave riding through a multitude of water crafts, Lauren also recently became an ambassador for Roxy. We’re delighted to have this fascinating young lady join our diverse little group and look forward to following along with her adventures!
In late November, I ordered a custom Bing Sunfish. I love a good fish. They're skatey, but give you the power right under your feet. You can pick a floater, fin drift or the most locked in cutback, plus they're much better in bigger waves than most people give them credit for. I ordered it in a yellow that Jeff from the shop called "spicy mustard". It was finished just after New Years.
Congratulations to Matt Calvani, Bing's Master Shaper for winning the Florida Shape Off at Surf Expo. The end goal was to replicate an iconic Dick Catri fish using a balsa blank as the canvas. Matt described the 4 hour project as a tiring but satisfying experience. Especially with taking the win. Congrats Matt!
