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.

Bing rider Will Allen has a big crush on his 5'8" Bing Spork. Designed by Chris Del Moro and Matt Calvani, the Bing Spork is a modified shortboard design that excels in waves that let it light up. Great for beach break barrels, fast crossed up peaks, and points. Check Will Allen out ripping his recently in Southern California. Filmed and edited by Ryan Cannon.
