New Dealer: El Aquanauta in Mallorca

August 11, 2014

El Aquanauta
An old shipyard building in Palma de Mallorca is about to be transformed into El Aquanauta. El Aquanauta will be a lifestyle house for lovers of surfing, motorcycles, food, traveling, photography, hand built boats, culture and the sea. The house will sell selective surfboards from Bing and unique lifestyle brands and collectables and serve great food all day. It will be an evolving space which showcase venues and unique people, and quite special, a part of the house will be an open workspace for a professional boatbuilder Jan Van der Horst www.manosdelmar.com. Retail will be refreshing and live in a contemporary spot light.

Friends Juanjo Campos (Majorcan Marine biologist and now restaurant owner) and Andres Ballinas (half Mexican/half Swedish musician/songwriter) are both surfers and conscious travelers and ideas and inspiration has been collected while traveling all over the world with surfboards and cameras under their arms. Together with the original and creative artist Miguel Periago the trio are the enthusiastic owners behind El Aquanauta.

Until the opening of El Aquanauta you will find the Bing boards at Juanjo’s already established lifestyle restaurant Duke, in the young neighborhood Santa Catalina in Palma. Here the old school surf style is cherished and present. In front of Duke you’ll find Andre’s photo gallery The Window where the boards are also shown.

So if you’re ever off the eastern coast of Spain on Mallorca be sure to stop in and visit Duke/The Window until El Aquanauta is finished. We’re looking forward to bringing quality Bing Surfboards to Mallorca through Andres, Juanjo and Miguel.

Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'
Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'

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.

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. Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland

Eric Diamond, or "E.D.", as most of us know him, has deep roots that started back when his father, Daryl Diamond, drove the Clark Foam delivery truck with Eric riding shotgun. 

Fast forward to today, Eric did a couple of designs for us here at Bing; "Waves of Change" and "Planer". They obviously reflect his passion for the transitional period. We are thrilled to have him as a Bing Ambassador / Artist and are proud to present his work for your enjoyment.
