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.

An Interview with Christian Marcher of Progressive Surf Academy

 

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more stoked on surfing than our friend and local ripper Christian Marcher. Big boards, small boards, soft tops, surf mats, hand planes, you name it and this guy rides them all at a very elite level. The best part about Christian is that he is always the nicest guy in the water and he pushes the boundaries of what you think is possible on a surfboard every time he paddles out.

With over 30 years of surfing experience, Christian has built Progressive Surf Academy into one of the most well-respected surf schools anywhere on the West Coast. He and his team use a very unique approach that dives deep into ocean safety, technique, and ethics in the lineup that you don’t see anywhere else. Christian delivers a premium surf experience for all ages and has been a part of the Bing family for a few years, so we sat down to chat and learn a bit more about the man and his love for the ocean.

AN INTERVIEW WITH PHOTOGRAPHER, VIDEOGRAPHER AND LIFE ENTHUSIAST, TOM TERRELL

February 18, 2023

  • I started out shooting film photography in high school, and carried around a variety of 35mm cameras for a lot of years while touring as a musician. I despised digital cameras when they arrived, but eventually I met a fellow in Scotland who sold me a water housing and a Canon 60d and I discovered how much fun, and fruitful, swimming and shooting with a digital camera could be. About 2016 I started playing around with short surf films and realized really quick that I loved the medium. At the time I was a musician by trade so being able to combine rhythm, color, imagery and composition was a dream.
