TransparentSea Voyage 2011 Concludes!

October 24, 2011


Congratulations to the entire TransparentSea Voyage crew and support team for concluding a successful and magical ocean mission this month along our Southern California shores!  Along with four super fun and successful events held in Santa Barbara, Malibu, Dana Point, and Mission Bay, the sailing members were also joined on their boats by various actors/actresses, musicians, pro surfers, and surf legends who all share the same love and passion for our oceans and their creatures.

TransparentSea is an ongoing awareness campaign aimed at highlighting coastal environmental issues with particular attention given to cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and the waters they inhabit.

The first journey took place in Australia in 2009 and was conceptualised by world renowned freesurfer, Dave Rastovich and fellow Surfers For Cetaceans (S4C) co-founder and activist, Howie Cooke.

The second TransparentSea journey followed the southern migration of the California Grey Whale whale throughout the month of October, joining them near Santa Barbara on October 1st then heading down over four weeks to conclude near the USA-Mexico boarder on October 25th.

The participating surfers included Bing team riders Chris Del Moro and Lauren Hill, in addition to the S4C crew Dave Rastovich, Hilton Dawe, Howie Cooke, JJ, Will Conner and Justin Krumb.

Along the way the crew engaged key community groups and raised awareness and drew attention to the causes they support.

Alex Patrick is an artist in every sense of the word. He is well versed in still photography and cinematography, has a true love for cinema, and will travel to the ends of the earth to find the perfect shot. But, the thing we appreciate most about him is that he’s not in a hurry. Unlike most new-age digital content creators, he believes in the process and could care less about any deadline or being a part of any new social media trend. His imagery has a subtle hint of romance that stems from his unwavering love for light in all forms. Alex has been a part of the Bing family for quite a few years, so we decided to sit down with him and see what he’s been up to…

With the impending doom of a long, cold California winter upon us a few of the Bing crew decided to head south for a few days. As soon as we crossed into Tijuana through the CBX we could immediately feel the beginnings of a very special few days ahead. As any surfer knows, the beauty of Mexico lies not only in the perfect waves and golden beaches, but also within the generosity and welcoming smiles of all who inhabit this amazing country.

Since the opening of the first Bing shop in Leucadia in 2013, becoming a part of the local surf community has been our main goal. Over the years we’ve hosted dozens of events all centered around two things... our love for surfing and bringing the community together. Whether it’s a new board model release party, an art show, or a charitable event we have always found that keeping our gatherings open to the public and heavily attended by the local surf tribe is something you can’t put a price on.
