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!
In late November, I ordered a custom Bing Sunfish. I love a good fish. They're skatey, but give you the power right under your feet. You can pick a floater, fin drift or the most locked in cutback, plus they're much better in bigger waves than most people give them credit for. I ordered it in a yellow that Jeff from the shop called "spicy mustard". It was finished just after New Years.
Congratulations to Matt Calvani, Bing's Master Shaper for winning the Florida Shape Off at Surf Expo. The end goal was to replicate an iconic Dick Catri fish using a balsa blank as the canvas. Matt described the 4 hour project as a tiring but satisfying experience. Especially with taking the win. Congrats Matt!
