Matt Calvani Takes 3rd in Art of Shaping

October 10, 2011


Congratulations to Matt Calvani who took 3rd place in the Art of Shaping Los Angeles Edition surfboard auction presented by Billabong at the Del Mar Sacred Craft this past weekend.  His submission to the auction, a 12-foot gun surfboard, earned the 3rd highest bid, following first place submission by Jeff Ho and second place submission by Lance Carson and beat out notable submissions by shapers such as Greg Noll, Hap Jacobs, Dewey Weber, Tyler Hatzikian, & Dennis Jarvis.  Not bad for the youngest shaper in the top 3!  The prize for third place was a full-page ad in Surfer Magazine.

With new wave pool parks opening up around the world, it's possible to get waves in places you wouldn't expect to. A few of our Bing family members have had the chance to get some Bing Surfboards under their feet at land locked wave parks you may be eager to surf. The parks actually produce waves that rival the quality of your local home break. The feedback from each family member can help you know what Bing to ride at a wave park near you.
