The Sun is Back

Well after a very short bit of rain in San Diego we’re back to sunny skies and shorts weather. It’s always nice after a rain when the sun comes out. Everything seems a bit more fresh. With the east coast socked in currently with cold, snow and high winds we’re glad that we live in the Encinitas surf bubble. The Marigold 6’8″ Collector with clear bottom sits outside waiting patiently to be taken out in the surf. Just up the street consistent swell and north counties gentle reefs call to all it’s residence.

The short walk up Europa and onto Neptune reveals the Southern California dream of beach homes with epic ocean views. The palms create that tropical feel and offer shade to all the runners, bikers and surfers who walk this path.

The parking lot and beach access point offer a view of continued winter NW swell filling in. Light winds give peppered blue textures to the gleaming water. The chest to head high crumbly walls are perfect for the 6’8″ Collector back at the shop. What a shame it’s not in use this day. It’s been a few weeks now of consistent surf so the crowds seem a bit thin for this type of swell. People getting their fill I guess but all to soon there will be a batch of crappy surf and everyone will be jonesing again soon to forget all the surf they had in the past few weeks. If you haven’t made the effort to get to the beach come by the Bing Surf Shop and enjoy the sun, relax on our benches and let the Marigold colored Collector whisper like a siren in your ear. It’s a perfect excuse to slow down and enjoy what North County has to offer.

Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

Rest In Peace: Greg 'Da Bull' Noll

We met in 1949 hanging on the rail of the Manhattan Beach pier watching Velzy and the older guys surfing planks and paddle boards on the waves below.  That was our introduction to  surfing, and the surfer life, that consumed us both for the next seventy plus years.  Even though we were competitors in the surfboard business we’ve always remained close friends and best buddies. Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland
