Summer of 1959 Rick Stoner and I made 8 to 10 boards in my parents garage. After making too much smell and dust we were kicked out and in the fall of 1959 we opened my first shop as "Bing & Rick Surfboards" 1338 Strand Hermosa Beach. A year later I bought Rick out and changed it to Bing Surfboards.
Spring of 1961, after a year on the strand, because of too much dust and noise again, I was forced to move to 598-C Meyer Lane Redondo Beach. It was sales and factory all in one shop.
1820 Pacific Coast Hwy, Hermosa Beach was my first showroom and sales only shop. Opened in June of '62.
In Spring of 1963 we opened a second sales shop inland to 511 Whittier Blvd. Whittier, Ca.
In the fall of 1963 we moved our production to 1309 Bard St. Hermosa Beach.
Spring of 1969 we moved the factory to 725 Cypress in Hermosa Beach.
Spring of 1970 we moved the sales shop to 931 Pacific Coast Hwy. Hermosa. We sold our boards, Hobie Catamarans and we built and sold Meyers Manx dune buggies.
G&S located at 5465 Gaines St. San Diego, CA 92110 licensed and built Bing Surfboards from 1974 to 1989. Mike Eaton was the main shaper for Bing during this period.
Mike Eaton managed the Bing surfboard label and production through his shop in Mission Beach, San Diego, CA until 2000
Matt and I ( Bing ) enter into a partnership of the brand Bing Surfboards and began building boards back in Hermosa Beach, CA close to the old Cypress location.
Matt and Margaret Calvani moved shaping and board production into the original Channin Factory. Encinitas, CA.
In November 2012, Bing Surf Shop opens at 804 North Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, CA.
Bing Surfboards celebrates our 60th year of making high-quality surfboards made in California. Doors close at the 804 location, but reopen up the street at 974 North Coast Highway, 101 Leucadia, CA!

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.
