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

In 1959 my friend Rick Stoner and I decided to open our first surf shop on the Strand in Hermosa Beach, Ca. We'd been surfing with our friend Stu Linder who was pretty artistic. Stu donated his time giving our little beach shop a Polynesian look. Now we had a shop and we needed a logo.

Bing rider Will Allen has a big crush on his 5'8" Bing Spork. Designed by Chris Del Moro and Matt Calvani, the Bing Spork is a modified shortboard design that excels in waves that let it light up. Great for beach break barrels, fast crossed up peaks, and points. Check Will Allen out ripping his recently in Southern California. Filmed and edited by Ryan Cannon.

The last issue of SURFER Magazine (sobs) has hit the shelves and basically you may only find a copy somewhere the news is not out of their indefinite pause. A sad day in the surfing community, although there is a diamond of an article in the issue that features our lady in charge, Margaret Calvani and Bing rider Lauren Hill.
