***LUCKY MAN***

December 29, 2010

– In the last edition of Pacific Longboarder magazine, all the subscribers went in the draw to win a Bing Elevator and George was the lucky winner…..well actually, his partner Alicia won the board for him. Alicia gave George a 12 month subscription to PLB as a birthday gift and ended up winning George the board. As you can see from the photo above George is pretty stoked about it.
Alicia and George are owner/operators of Blue Afro Hair and Beauty Salon in Manly. So next time you’re in Manly and you see someone surfing a blue Bing and they’ve got a huge grin on their face, good chance it’ll be George. Congratulations guys….enjoy.

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

Rest In Peace: Greg 'Da Bull' Noll

We met in 1949 hanging on the rail of the Manhattan Beach pier watching Velzy and the older guys surfing planks and paddle boards on the waves below.  That was our introduction to  surfing, and the surfer life, that consumed us both for the next seventy plus years.  Even though we were competitors in the surfboard business we’ve always remained close friends and best buddies.
