Bing Surfboards invites you to come out and support team rider, ChrisDel Moro, in the Santa Cruz leg of the Vans Joel Tudor’s Duct Tape Invitational being held January 14-15 at the famous Santa Cruz right-hander,Steamer Lane. Chris spent two years attending UC Santa Cruz and getting well-acquainted with the local breaks, so we’re sure he’s excited to return to his stomping grounds for this momentous event. Santa Cruz is one of those magical areas that can draw in some of the best waves the California coast has to offer. Chris has been working hard with Matt Calvani to put together the right quiver in preparation for the event, which includes a 9’8 Levitator, 9’6 Elevator, and 9’6 Lovebird. Join us in wishing him lots of love, light and luck in his heats!

THE LEGEND OF TOOTHLESS JOE
THE LEGEND OF TOOTHLESS JOE

June 16, 2022

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.
