Bing Visits Bing Surf Shop and Matt Calvani Shapes at the Boardroom Show in Del Mar

May 11, 2018

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.

Elliot Dudley in Costa Rica
Elliot Dudley in Costa Rica

May 16, 2018

This is my 8th visit to Costa Rica, my first being back in 2002. Aged 17 I skipped school for two weeks to go on a surf trip with my old man and a group of longboarders from the UK.

We started in Nosara and worked our way up the coast, spending the last few days at Ollie's point. Back then getting round was much more difficult and the convoluted journey from San Jose took upwards of 7 hours. Now you can fly direct to Liberia from London and be in the ocean within 3 hours of landing.
