UK’s Elliot Dudley Joins the Bing Team

January 06, 2012

 

Over the holidays, Elliot Dudley and his family arrived in California for their holiday and came by our house to pick-up some boards that he had ordered.  Little did he know, he was walking straight into the middle of our Bing Surfboards company holiday party and within minutes, jet-lagged and bleary-eyed, he had been introduced to Mike Hynson, Jim Phillips, Matt Calvani, Jon Wegener, and Chris Del Moro.  What struck me as particularly fascinating during our first meeting with Elliot was his reaction to meeting these notable and legendary surfers and shapers.  Not only did it mean that he had a tremendous respect for the history of surfing and surfboard-building, but for a guy with 2 European Longboard titles  and a handful of British Championship titles as well, I was surprised to see someone of note himself so humble in the presence of this group.

Over the course of the next week, we were able to spend some time with Elliot and learn about his goals of becoming a grade school teacher,  his homeland in Wales, his prolific career as a competitive surfer, his community service with the organization, Surfers Against Sewage, as well as his transition away from competition and back to his roots and love of single-fin longboards and alternative shortboards.  It became apparent that this humble, mild-mannered and handsome young man would be an ideal ambassador for Bing Surfboards and we are both eager and excited to see what this next chapter in his surfing career holds.  Welcome to the family Elliot!
