Social: Week in Review

June 20, 2014

We started the week off with a new video “Lola In The Neighborhood”. Lola visited San Diego and scored fun waves with fellow team rider Mick Rodgers. View Now

The Bing Surfboards factory has been super busy keeping up with the summer demand. The “Todays View From the Office” snap shot showed a few beauties getting finished up. A custom, a couple of CA Square Tails, a CA Pintail and a Levitator where featured. People really love to look at boards.

We then highlighted the importance of the laminating process. Glass & Resin transform what the shaper does to the foam and gives it the practical properties envisioned for the surfboard. It’s an interesting and important process a lot of surfers never think about. View More

Team rider Chris Del Moro transports us to somewhere in the Indian Ocean. CDM Jerry rigs a GoPro to bring us along for a barrel ride on his Bing Spork. If only we had barrels at home.

We get a little history from the archives of Bing Surfboards. An ad used in Surfer Magazine, March 1968. This one features the Pintail Lightweight surfboard along with shaper Dick Brewer and team rider David Nuuhiwa. Read More

We finish the week off with team rider James Parry displaying classic style in modern times. James is one of the “new generation” surfers keeping the old school single fin longboard surfing alive while also helping it progress. He’s an all around great waterman and can surf anything well.

Have a great weekend and get out there.

Travel is all about getting somewhere else. The journey, comically titled “the destination,” by some real masochists, feels more to me like a practical joke then a zen-buddha lesson in being present; a blur of drinking $9 Chardonnay while trying to stream Lego Batman across the isle and entertain a baby with a series of 10 second activities (tray table, crackers, seatbelt, headphones!).

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.

Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft. 

When and where did you start surfing? Describe your first surfboard.

I started surfing when I was about 15 in Virginia Beach, and my first board was an old funboard from WRV that was about 7’6” and had glass on thrusters and an insane airbrush.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
