A Nicaragua surf trip can only mean one thing. Offshore winds and good times. Last month, Matt and Margaret Calvani were able to get away with some friends, clients and vendors for some surf, good company, and a little old fashion relaxation. Figuring out what board to ride must have been quite the dilemma. Photos courtesy of Petter Toremalm & Linn Lundgren from www.SunshineStories.com
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!
