Our Employees Actually Surf.

Our employees are not limited to working in the factory in Encinitas, CA. Actually going surfing is a necessity for us to test our boards, wetsuits, and surf gear, allowing us to gather valuable feedback so we can improve our designs before we offer them to you.

Introducing Bing Wetsuits!

Not only do we need feedback about our surfboards, we also count on our crew to give us feedback on any product we make. Bing Surfboards is stoked to be offering our new wetsuit line! We have worked closely with our crew in Japan that hand crafts our wetsuits one at a time. Bing Wetsuits are made with high quality Japanese rubber, built with style and function in mind. Of course, they are extremely warm and flexible! Adam Cap and Mick Rodgers have given our design team feedback and suggestions for improvement before production. You can find a full selection of Bing Wetsuits at our shop in Encinitas, and on bingsurf.com.

New Shapes In The Water

Two new shapes recently added to our board catalog are the Bing Concave Keel and the Bing Foil 2017. Bing Warehouse Manager, Adam Cap and Bing rider, Mick Rodgers have put some quality time in the water testing both. Their feedback has helped Matt Calvani to fine tune these amazing new shapes. If you are interested in trying the Bing Concave Keel, we have a full line up of demo models available to ride at our shop in Encinitas, CA.

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

July 02, 2021

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.

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

Artist Spotlight: Eric "E.D." Diamond
Artist Spotlight: Eric "E.D." Diamond

June 11, 2021

Eric Diamond, or "E.D.", as most of us know him, has deep roots that started back when his father, Daryl Diamond, drove the Clark Foam delivery truck with Eric riding shotgun. 

Fast forward to today, Eric did a couple of designs for us here at Bing; "Waves of Change" and "Planer". They obviously reflect his passion for the transitional period. We are thrilled to have him as a Bing Ambassador / Artist and are proud to present his work for your enjoyment.
