Block10 Productions is pleased to announce the release of their new project, ONDE NOSTRE | RITRATTI DI SURF. A series of short videos about surfers, shapers, artists, and other characters somehow connected to Onde Nostre and the Italian surf culture. Every month for a year, a new episode will be published until the release of their new 16mm documentary, Verso Sud, during the summer of 2013. Be sure to look for Matt Calvani and team rider, Alessandro Ponzanelli, in the upcoming series!
In late November, I ordered a custom Bing Sunfish. I love a good fish. They're skatey, but give you the power right under your feet. You can pick a floater, fin drift or the most locked in cutback, plus they're much better in bigger waves than most people give them credit for. I ordered it in a yellow that Jeff from the shop called "spicy mustard". It was finished just after New Years.
Congratulations to Matt Calvani, Bing's Master Shaper for winning the Florida Shape Off at Surf Expo. The end goal was to replicate an iconic Dick Catri fish using a balsa blank as the canvas. Matt described the 4 hour project as a tiring but satisfying experience. Especially with taking the win. Congrats Matt!
