Dharma 2.0: Ridden by Bing Rider Richard Kotch

March 03, 2016

Bing rider Richard Kotch loves the Dharma 2.0.
Watch the video, and read his words below to see what we mean.

We asked Rich to give us a little info about the board he is riding in the video. This is what he said:

“It’s a standard ‘off the rack’ 5’6 Dharma 2.0 It paddles so well that I almost feel like I’m cheating sometimes! If I had to describe it in one word it would be ‘Glide’ as it seems to glide into waves with minimum effort and glide across sections effortlessly. At first impressions it looks like a board for small, soft waves and of course it’s wave catching advantages and ability to plane across flat sections means that it is an excellent small wave board, but I have been equally impressed with it in slightly bigger waves. It loves a long point break, especially frontside when you can really compress into your bottom turn – holding your rail in the water for far longer than you’d expect for such a short board! It holds into a barrel really nicely and is super responsive to the most subtle of mid-barrel line adjustments! It would be the first board in my bag if I happened to be heading to the Maldives on a surf trip! Haha…Good times!”

He is well versed in still photography and cinematography, has a true love for cinema, and will travel to the ends of the earth to find the perfect shot. But, the thing we appreciate most about him is that he’s not in a hurry. Unlike most new-age digital content creators, he believes in the process and could care less about any deadline or being a part of any new social media trend. His imagery has a subtle hint of romance that stems from his unwavering love for light in all forms. Alex has been a part of the Bing family for quite a few years, so we decided to sit down with him and see what he’s been up to…

POSTCARDS FROM HEAVEN

With the impending doom of a long, cold California winter upon us a few of the Bing crew decided to head south for a few days. As soon as we crossed into Tijuana through the CBX we could immediately feel the beginnings of a very special few days ahead. As any surfer knows, the beauty of Mexico lies not only in the perfect waves and golden beaches, but also within the generosity and welcoming smiles of all who inhabit this amazing country.

Since the opening of the first Bing shop in Leucadia in 2013, becoming a part of the local surf community has been our main goal. Over the years we’ve hosted dozens of events all centered around two things... our love for surfing and bringing the community together. Whether it’s a new board model release party, an art show, or a charitable event we have always found that keeping our gatherings open to the public and heavily attended by the local surf tribe is something you can’t put a price on.
