Nausicaa is a new surf movie directed and filmed by the magnificent crew of Italian visual artists- Onde Nostre.
Fellow California surf cast:
(Notably the best crew to start and end a trip with.)
Once meeting up with these two, in the ocean of insanity also known as LAX, we paid our Satan's offering to Turkish Airlines of an accumulated $666 in board fees. Feeling lighter in the pocket, we began the long 21 hours of travel that lead us to finally touch down in the snow covered winter wonderland known as Milano; here we were met by the Italian crew:
Luca Merli - Director/Filmaker
Filippo Maffei - Photographer
Betta Dal Bello - Stylist
Alessandro Ponzanelli - Surfer / Bing Team Rider
After a warm welcome, we quickly proceeded to venture onward by ferry for an additional 12 hrs, to our final destination...
|Most of our time was spent on the notorious island of Sardinia. Well known for its history and rich culture, this Italian Eden was a beautiful neverland of rolling hills and vast green fields, where one often notices roaming flocks of sheep and horses.
Despite the cold at this time of year, one could not help but look to the coastline, and take in the beauty of such a picturesque paradise.
|As the trip went on, we continued to add to our crew. Last but not least:
Natalia Resmini- Illustrator/Artist
Seba Concas- Sailor/Surfer and Native Sardinian
Moana - The Red Sailboat (and our home for the remainder of the trip).
|Each day was a constant and continual search for waves. Spending many hours driving around the beautiful bends of the coast or sailing to outer small islands. Along the way learning so much about Sardinian culture and traditions.
Never had Italy ever crossed my mind as a surf destination, however, I quickly found that the most unsuspecting places can be the most adventurously rewarding. - Mele Saili

Alex Patrick is an artist in every sense of the word. He is well versed in still photography and cinematography, has a true love for cinema, and will travel to the ends of the earth to find the perfect shot. 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.
