“This video tells the story of Blue Surf & Travel Magazine editor and CA based surfer Robin York, from Munich, Germany ordering his first custom single fin from Bing Surfboards, a legendary CA shaping label. The video offers a short interview with Matt Calvani, the Head Shaper at Bing Surfboards, and a look into Matt’s shaping bay as he talks through the board’s design. Notice the nod to Robin’s Bavarian roots in the detailed Bavarian flag airbrush on the underside of the deck! “
The film is shot and edited by Kay Madsen, a German surfer, cinematographer and editor also based in LA. Click for full story.
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!
