A big weekend was in order in Leucadia, CA and in Del Mar, CA. First off, Bing Copeland, the man who started it all was in town. He stopped into the shop on Saturday to sign books, boards, and hang like the early days of Bing Surfboards. We still have some signed books at the shop, so come by and get one! 
Thanks to the @boardroomshow for putting on a great event. Our very own Matt Calvani was in the shaping competition faced against his early mentor, Wayne Rich. They both had to handshape their own version of the Marc Andreini Michael Peterson “Vaquero” model. Without using modern measurement tools to gauge basic dimensions, the shapers were left to feel and eye out the original to determine their approach. Below are some photos and quick time lapse from an awesome day at Bing Surfboards.

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.

Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft. 

When and where did you start surfing? Describe your first surfboard.

I started surfing when I was about 15 in Virginia Beach, and my first board was an old funboard from WRV that was about 7’6” and had glass on thrusters and an insane airbrush.

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
