Catching Up with Bing Rider: Mick Rodgers

April 11, 2016

Photography: Cole Beal

B: Happy Birthday Mick! What did you do?

M: Beach with the boys and some beers…pretty simple but never disappoints.

B: You are working on a new model, can you give us any details?

M: Matt Calvani and I have gone back to the think-tank to come up with another board. Where my current model is more an all-around noserider with and emphasis on turning and speed, the new one will be more noseride oriented. We have combined a bunch of boards, taking design elements I have enjoyed from a few of the current Bing noseriders and mixing it with some influences from Cooperfish and Con Surfboards. It is a lively noserider that allows a lot of tweaking and control from the nose. Been having a blast on the thing lately, and think people will enjoy it.

“Beach with the boys and some beers.. pretty simple but never disappoints.”

B: You and Soren Heil have been working on a new short film. How is it coming along? What should we expect? When will it be done? ( froth )

M: It has been quite the process, filming over the past year. It focuses on my current “mobile” living  situation, and how its affected my life. should be out shortly.

B: Can you suggest the best fins to use with the Mr. Rodgers Model?

M: It’s hard to mess with the Greenough 4a, just a great all-around fin. I usually prefer a bit a flex in my fins, you get more drive and projections in turns, and I feel you get more control/steerability from the nose.

B: Any new travels in the near future?

M: There is a potential Mex adventure down the road…but until then looking to do an mission up north along the California coast. Take my time and make a couple pit stops on way. Should be a hoot…
