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.

New York City, the city that never sleeps-- home to Wall Street, The Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty— also has some of the best waves on the East Coast. Yep, The Greatest City in the World also packs a punch when it comes to waves. In an almost forgotten corner of New York City lies a beach town that is home to an eclectic group of impressive surfers from all around the world. From local kids whose families have lived there for generations to transplants from Brooklyn who courageously travel by subway with their surfboards, to the pros who are in town for the weekend, Rockaway Beach is one of the most iconic beaches in New York.
