Bing Surfboards Welcomes Reilly Stone

May 05, 2015

REILLY-STONE-BING-NAME
Bing Surfboards is pleased to welcome Santa Cruz native, Reilly Stone, to our team and family. At just 16 years old Reilly Stone is already making a lasting impact on the longboarding world. Being a Pleasure Point native, Reilly has always been within steps of the ocean and takes full advantage with multiple surfs per day. Reilly caught his first wave at age three in Waikiki, and started surfing competitively at 11 years old.

Reilly has a maturity and work ethic beyond his 16 year age. While he travels the globe for contests, free surfing, and photoshoots he also maintains a high GPA through independent studies and a humbleness that is refreshing. Reilly’s dedication and focus has shown. In the words of his mentor and trainer, World Champion CJ Nelson, “Reilly has one of the smoothest approaches to longboard surfing that I have ever seen. Born and bred on the long walls of Pleasure Point, Reilly is loved and supported by his community. While a lot of kids his age are confused and scattered, Reilly is calmly focused on his passion and spends 90% of his time in the water. I am proud to say that the next generation of northern Californian longboarders is looking good and Reilly is the cream of the crop.”

We at Bing Surfboards are so proud to have Reilly as a part of the family! You can follow Reilly through this blog, our social media outlets, or on his instagram as well: @reillywstone

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…

POSTCARDS FROM HEAVEN

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.

Since the opening of the first Bing shop in Leucadia in 2013, becoming a part of the local surf community has been our main goal. Over the years we’ve hosted dozens of events all centered around two things... our love for surfing and bringing the community together. Whether it’s a new board model release party, an art show, or a charitable event we have always found that keeping our gatherings open to the public and heavily attended by the local surf tribe is something you can’t put a price on.
