Bing Welcomes Britain’s James Parry

January 11, 2013

Bing Surfboards is pleased to welcome British stylemaster and overall swell guy, James Parry, to the Bing family.  We met James a few years ago at the Salinas Duct Tape Invitational and ran into him in California the following year.  He’s a man of few words with a sweet disposition, and he sure rides a log right!  A natural fit, he got on famously with the boys in the shop and was gracious enough to invite Bing Copeland, Matt & Margaret Calvani and Mick Rodgers to his annual Cornwall event, the Hip Wiggler Invitational last fall.  We couldn’t be more amped to have James on board!

With new wave pool parks opening up around the world, it's possible to get waves in places you wouldn't expect to. A few of our Bing family members have had the chance to get some Bing Surfboards under their feet at land locked wave parks you may be eager to surf. The parks actually produce waves that rival the quality of your local home break. The feedback from each family member can help you know what Bing to ride at a wave park near you.

Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

Rest In Peace: Greg 'Da Bull' Noll

We met in 1949 hanging on the rail of the Manhattan Beach pier watching Velzy and the older guys surfing planks and paddle boards on the waves below.  That was our introduction to  surfing, and the surfer life, that consumed us both for the next seventy plus years.  Even though we were competitors in the surfboard business we’ve always remained close friends and best buddies. Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland
