The Surfing Heritage and Cultural Center (SHACC) played host last Saturday, March 8th, for the opening night of “The Legacy of Bing” exhibit. The exhibit runs through the month of March so if you missed the opening celebration you still have time to visit and view the Bing exhibit. SHACC is located in San Clemente, California.
The evening allowed attendees to mingle with Bing Copeland who founded Bing surfboards in 1959. The Bing Surfboards crew was there with Matt and Margaret Calvani, Chris Del Moro, Royce Cansler and James Parry. Tom Moss was kind enough to display his awesome collection of vintage Bing Surfboards. Paul Holmes, author of “Bing Surfboards fifty years of craftsmanship and innovation”, was also there signing books and sharing his experience in working to create the book.
The highlight was Bing Copeland sharing some of the vast history he was a part of creating over the last 50+ years during his official speech. He noted how special it was to be a part of the birth of surfing and enjoying surfing trips up and down the California coast with barely a person around at all the most popular breaks of today; Rincon, Malibu, Trestles, Swamis, just to name a few. Imagine surfing these spots with a maximum crowd of three. He also briefly discussed all those he worked with to develop and expand surfboard manufacturing techniques. He was there for the births of these technologies, many of which we still use to this day. Thanks Bing Copeland for your life’s work and for sharing your history with us. Matt and Margaret Calvani proudly carry on the tradition, craftsmanship and knowledge you started.

Eric Diamond, or "E.D.", as most of us know him, has deep roots that started back when his father, Daryl Diamond, drove the Clark Foam delivery truck with Eric riding shotgun.
Fast forward to today, Eric did a couple of designs for us here at Bing; "Waves of Change" and "Planer". They obviously reflect his passion for the transitional period. We are thrilled to have him as a Bing Ambassador / Artist and are proud to present his work for your enjoyment.
