October 03, 2011

 
Matt Calvani, receiving 2 nominations for this year’s Art of Shaping LA County Edition, presented by Billabong at this month’s Sacred Craft Surfboard Show (Del Mar, CA), decided to submit, for his Bing nomination, the most prolific and famous surfboard design ever conceptualized under the label, the Bing David Nuuhiwa Noserider Model.  In this 9’6 rendition of the timeless Bing surfboard model,  Matt decided to build it in the traditional balsa wood construction, glassed with a red resin pigment and traditional red Bing Noserider glass-on fin.

We were driving at night and thus had already broken one of just two rules we made before crossing the southern border. It wasn’t really our fault.
