This is Ed. Ed has been building surfboards for what he describes as “too long.” I walked into the factory today and Ed was hand sanding this glass on single fin, one stroke at a time, as patient and diligent as if it was his own board. What I love about Bing is that each person is here , fully committed to the craftsmanship of the process and with the same goal – not to chase fads or notoriety, but to build the best possible surfboard – one cut, one lamination, one sanding block, one board at a time. So here’s to our crew! Thanks for all your hard work! You make this place great.
New York City, the city that never sleeps-- home to Wall Street, The Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty— also has some of the best waves on the East Coast. Yep, The Greatest City in the World also packs a punch when it comes to waves. In an almost forgotten corner of New York City lies a beach town that is home to an eclectic group of impressive surfers from all around the world. From local kids whose families have lived there for generations to transplants from Brooklyn who courageously travel by subway with their surfboards, to the pros who are in town for the weekend, Rockaway Beach is one of the most iconic beaches in New York.
