The Boards

[1] Bing Spork 5’9″
[2] Dhalberg 5’4″
[3] Bing Bulb 5’6″
[4] Webster Longboard 8’6″
[5] Hayden Shapes 5’8″
[6] Bing Maui Foil, single fin 6’6″
[7] Dhalberg 5’5″
[8] Bing Dharma 2.0, Quad 5’6″

Here’s what Hayley said about the Dharma 2.0 and Bulb.
“The Dharma was great to ride it feels like a blend between a performance short board and a fish. The quad set up made it really stable and faster than a normal fish. The Butt-Tail makes it easy to turn and I felt really confident on it in the medium sized waves. The Bulb was similar in the way it felt on the waves a nice mix of glide and sensitivity.”

Here’s what Hayley said about the Maui Foil.
“This board was a wedding gift to Richard and Amy from Bing surfboards and I was really excited to give it a go as it was such a special board. Bing surfboards have been creating amazing surfboards since 1949 and this late 60s classic single fin replica is no exception. I really enjoyed riding this board because it gave me the same paddle power I have on my mal but was far more responsive and faster across the face of the wave. I was able to take off further up the lineup and make sections across the reef that I previously couldn’t make.”

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

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.
