Event: Coffee with Matt Calvani
Date: Saturday, Dec. 7th
Location: Bing Surf Shop in Encinitas

Last Saturday was an unusual rainy day for Encinitas. However, the hot coffee from the Pannikin and all the chatter about surfboards kept everyone warm and talkative. Matt Calvani is the owner and head shaper at Bing Surfboards and he was available to the public last Saturday to talk about anything surfboard related. He gave recommendations on types of boards to ride, wave conditions suited for each model, ideas on what would help a person ride better for their stage of development and he even got deep into rails, concaves, fins and tail designs.

Everyone on hand got a turn to speak with Matt one-on-one. You could tell the information was helpful as people started to order boards and some even purchased boards off the showroom floor. Lucky for them the right size model was on hand so they didn’t have to wait for one to be made at the Bing Factory just up the street. A Bing Collector 7’8″, a Bing Silver Spoon 9’8″ and a Trimulux 9’0″ where a few purchased that day by some happy new owners. The Australian Foil, Bing Elevator and Bing Levitator also got pulled from the racks quite a bit during the discussions.

If you missed the event don’t worry. The Bing Surf Shop will have more this month. You can always contact us through our contact page to get any questions answered. The Bing Surf Shop also has knowledgeable employees who can listen, explain and get you into the perfect surfboard.
