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

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…

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.
