James Parry Party Recap

Last Saturday we had the James Parry Surfboard Model Release Party and Photo Show featuring James Parry’s photography. Bing Copeland even made it down from Idaho to help James celebrate the release of his new surfboard model. It was fitting that Bing was in attendance. It was only 3 short years ago that James first met Bing at an event James organized in the UK. Back then James was not on the Bing team but was a fan. Now he’s stateside riding for Bing Surfboards with his own surfboard model.

James Parry Photography

James Parry is also a talented photographer. Through his travels and surfing connections James has a unique eye for capturing the surf culture he is a part of. You can check out more of his images for sale on his personal website at http://www.jamesparryphotography.com. We dressed up the shop with his images for the evening.

Matt Calvani

Of course everyone wanted to see the new Surfboard Model designed by James Parry and Matt Calvani. Matt was busy all night explaining the features and design process that took over a year to perfect for James Parry’s own model. It’s a board that nose rides insane but had to work in all kinds of conditions since James travels so much. A definite winner design wise that will work for all types of surfers.

James Parry Party

The party went on into the night. Bing Copeland was spreading surf knowledge and taking photos with the fans of the brand. Pabst Blue Ribbon beer generously kept everyone hydrated throughout the evening. We were stoked to see such a great response for one of our riders. Thanks to everyone who made the event possible and for all those who stopped by to enjoy the simple pleasures of surfboards and surf stories. See you next time at the Bing Surfboards Surf Shop.
