Ghost Lam Model: Pig Pin

July 24, 2019

Introducing a new design to the Ghost Lam Project, Bing Master Shaper Matt Calvani created two new midlength options, the 'Pig Pin', and it's sibling, the 'Pigformer' - A squash tail option of the Pig Pin, which is designed for quicker cuts on the face when projecting out of the pocket. Feedback from Bing rider Will Allen and his dad came back highly positive. As well, Matt has ridden this new design in the waters close to home in Leucadia, CA. The Pig Pin is currently available to demo at Bing Surf Shop, stop in and talk to the crew about it and take it out for a test drive!

"The Pig Pin is a 8'6" to 9'2" board that is designed to turn like a smaller mid range because of the wide point back and narrow nose reminiscent of the early 60's pigs. The best part is the flat rocker which gives excellent paddle, glide, and wave catching that acts like a much longer board. A unique combination of elements that has given me a ton of stoke as an alternative to my longboard." - Matt Calvani

SURFER: KURT ALLEN

"Rides like a mini bean and cheese burrito. Very clean and tasty. trims like no other and when you step on the tail it can really engage on rail. There is enough foam to cross step and position yourself in critical sections for speed. I would imagine this board would be fun in tubes as well. I highly recommend the Pig Pin. My favorite mid length yet!" - Will Allen

Working with Bing is so much more than I ever expected out of “work”. The entire Bing team has not only pushed me to be as creative as I can be, but it’s given me a sense of family in a new place. I have moved all over the world in my life and I’ve never felt such a warm welcome before. Their collective positivity and warmness has brought me so much inspiration in the few months that I’ve had the pleasure to work with them. I can’t wait to see where these friendships will take us all. I’d like to give a special shout out to a guy who’s inspiring positive attitude and willingness to give a random toothless guy from Delaware a chance, Grey Lockwood aka “Team Dad”

I surfed the Church + Middles zone a lot when I was in San Clemente. I definitely clocked a few magic sessions in that part of the coast. I have always kinda been allergic to the crowd factor in California…. But this season I feel like I had a few sessions that felt like I was in the Baja. Maybe 6 people out… all smiles and good vibes. So many waves! We did a morning meet up with the Bing crew and absolutely scored… glassy perfect waves. That was a standout session for sure. When I was staying in Venice I was surfing Malibu, which never felt like Baja, with 600 of my best friends or heading up the coast to Ventura to surf the beachies or Rincon. It’s always kinda fun to get into the mix at the Bu. You just have to think of surfing as a completely different activity. It’s more of a happy hour vibe all the time.
