The Narwhal

August 18, 2015

Here at Bing Surfboards we never shy away from a custom order, in fact, custom orders make up a good chunk of what we do around here and we embrace them with open arms. Every once in a while a really unique order comes through the factory that is unlike any other. I remember seeing this particular order when it was first submitted and having to google what a narwhal was (I’ll save you the time … the narwhal, or narwhale, is a medium-sized toothed whale that possesses a large “tusk” from a protruding canine tooth. It lives year-round in the Arctic waters around Greenland, Canada, and Russia.). Well it’s seldom that we get to see where these special custom orders end up, but today in our email inbox we got the best letter from Meghan, the proud owner of The Narwhal. She said,

Wow!  I am so stoked!  My board is amazing!  I want to send a big thank you to everyone at Bing who helped make this board, you nailed it.  It is a beauty in every way.  The design and colors are perfect.  Took it out for it’s first sesh on Sunday and it was so fun.  The glide is amazing, I felt like I was flying paddling this baby.  We caught some really fun waves together even in some not great conditions.  I can tell I’m gonna have loads of fun with it.  I love this board. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I wish I could give you all a big hug!

This makes our day. We are so stoked for you Meghan! We hope you have many years of wave riding on that majestic Narwhal.

Any kind of travel allows for the landscape you know to slowly fade into the distance, while something else comes into view. The residue of your daily life slowly melts away as you walk or sail or glide towards whatever is waiting for you.

It was the allure of the California Coast in summer that reunited us. The days that stretched on well into the evening, a warmed Pacific Ocean where spring suits felt like enough and shimmering blue-green waves that tumbled onto shore so consistently they felt almost mechanical. Such lucid memories were enough for the three of us, who lived across the country, to reunite in San Diego and prepare for seven days of surfing twice a day up the coast with a couple of Bing Surfboards in tow. The board models we brought were the 9’6” Levitator, the 9’4” Continental and the 9’2” Pocket Knife.

WHAT A TRIP

At just 22 years old and hailing from a place not known for its surf quality, new Bing ambassador Trip Chandler has put together quite an impressive visual resume riding longboards. In between finishing up college courses you can either find this kid holding a single fin log or a fishing pole, but never without a big grin on his face.
