The Raven by Bing Surfboards

January 06, 2014


Recently we’ve had some fun surf around here in San Diego. Chris Del Moro happened to be in town and was frothing on his new single-fin Raven Matt Calvani shaped up for him. So I went out with CDM and was able to grab some clips. CDM’s friends Kassia Meador and Colin Whitbread joined in and photographer Nick Lavecchia was visiting and shooting some epic images. Matt Calvani also made it down to test out a new shape he’s currently dubbing the California Pintail. Above is a short clip I made of one of Chris’s waves from this session for a 15 sec Instavid featuring the midlength Raven. If you like going fast down the line and carving hard sweeping turns this just might be the board for you.

Working with Bing is so much more than I ever expected out of “work”. The entire Bing team has not only pushed me to be as creative as I can be, but it’s given me a sense of family in a new place. I have moved all over the world in my life and I’ve never felt such a warm welcome before. Their collective positivity and warmness has brought me so much inspiration in the few months that I’ve had the pleasure to work with them. I can’t wait to see where these friendships will take us all. I’d like to give a special shout out to a guy who’s inspiring positive attitude and willingness to give a random toothless guy from Delaware a chance, Grey Lockwood aka “Team Dad”

I surfed the Church + Middles zone a lot when I was in San Clemente. I definitely clocked a few magic sessions in that part of the coast. I have always kinda been allergic to the crowd factor in California…. But this season I feel like I had a few sessions that felt like I was in the Baja. Maybe 6 people out… all smiles and good vibes. So many waves! We did a morning meet up with the Bing crew and absolutely scored… glassy perfect waves. That was a standout session for sure. When I was staying in Venice I was surfing Malibu, which never felt like Baja, with 600 of my best friends or heading up the coast to Ventura to surf the beachies or Rincon. It’s always kinda fun to get into the mix at the Bu. You just have to think of surfing as a completely different activity. It’s more of a happy hour vibe all the time.
