Video: A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado

September 16, 2014

A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado from Quality Peoples on Vimeo.

From our friends over at Quality Peoples. This documentary film is the first in a series of short films that take a brief glimpse into the lives of Quality Peoples collaborators and inspirations. Israel Preciado is a longboarder cat from Mexico and the unofficial Mayor of Sayulita. You might know Izzy as the face of QP, he’s the stoic guy in all the photos. Antithetical to the image we’ve created of him, Izzy is actually one of the kindest, funniest, unassuming guys you’ll meet in the lineup. Izzy’s quiver runs deep and in this short film we spend a few shared moments with him as he talks about his childhood, his favorite spots, slowing things down, the art of small wave riding, traveling, learning to surf and the act of surfing as both sport and meditation. With a special appearance by Lola Mignot.This short documentary was filmed, directed and edited by the folks at Quality Peoples. We hope you enjoy.

New Bing Surf Shop Opens This Weekend!

February 28, 2019

We are really excited to announce that the new Bing Surf Shop will be opening this weekend! The new location is at 974 N. Coast Highway 101, in Leucadia, CA. We are moving into the location of previous iconic surf shops ( Surfy Surfy / Longboard Grotto / Leucadia Surf and Ski ). Being that this is our 60th year building surfboards in California, it only makes sense to do it with a bang. To give you a little history about our shop / factory locations since 1959, we asked Bing Copeland to highlight some key dates that indicate the road to where we are today.
