***400lb SHAKA to you & your loved ones***

Hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas.
I'm not sure did this little piece but I have a feeling it could be the creation of Chris Del Moro. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and you know who did it.


In the last edition of Pacific Longboarder magazine, all the subscribers went in the draw to win a Bing Elevator and George was the lucky winner.....well actually, his partner Alicia won the board for him. Alicia gave George a 12 month subscription to PLB as a birthday gift and ended up winning George the board. As you can see from the photo above George is pretty stoked about it.
Alicia and George are owner/operators of Blue Afro Hair and Beauty Salon in Manly. So next time you're in Manly and you see someone surfing a blue Bing and they've got a huge grin on their face, good chance it'll be George. Congratulations guys....enjoy.

This weekend's surf looks like we're going to have off shore winds with next to no swell. Tuesday's a totally different story, forecast is for a new south swell to peak at 1.5-2.0 meters with light winds. Wednesday and Thursday are looking promising at the moment as well.
If you call me mid next week and I don't answer my phone and you know me well enough, you'll know where I'll be. All we can do now is pray for perfect winds and the stars and the moons all align. I feel like a little kid waiting for Santa. See ya out there.

We've now got a nice range of Bing Dharma's in stock from 5'6" up to 6'0". These can be surfed short, if you ride a 5'10" fish you can surf one of these gems all the way down to 5'6" with ease. Get one, you'll love it.

Double trouble

One 5'8" twin fin fish, moss green tint top & bottom with glass-on fins and one super sweet Mini Simmons, denin blue tint nose + white opaque body, glass-on timber Gephart fins and a classy wedge cedar stringer. Couldn't ask for more. Both in stock.

Mick Rogers surfing his 9'8" Bing Elevator

Bing is proud to present their new team rider Mick Rogers. Mick was discovered surfing the break 'Barneys', where Bing ambassador of fun/team manager Robin McGinnis is always know to reside. Mick has been ripping up the college scene placing 2nd and 6th in the first two contests, doing it all on his 9'8" Elevator. This isn't an easy task when surfing stormy beach breaks surrounded by high pro competitors and short board judges. Above is a short video of his surfing prowess. Welcome aboard Mick.

HG picking up his Lovebird at Deus while attending the launch of Christo Reid's new book 'Cactus'. In Australian folklore Cactus Beach is legendary and the original secret surf spot on the edge of an Australian desert. The book documents 25 years of surfing at South Australia's iconic beach where Reid says 'The waves are ripe and the water alive with prehistoric eating machines'. Pick up your copy at Deus Ex Machina, Camperdown.

"He hasn't called me once.... since he got his new Bing"

Classic ad... This Bill Robbins photo resonated with the audience in SURFER magazine July 1965. More than a few teenage boys dreamed of rescuing this surfer girl even as they also related to the allure of the waves.

"Gee, I wish I had a Bing board" Another smart ad in Surfer magazine of Spring 1962. More than a few young surfers probably had the thought. This was Charlie Quesnel's.
All their old ads are featured in the 'Bing Surfboards, 50 years of Craftsmanship and Innovations'

Harry Beans Coffee Roaster / Bing Surfboards Rider

I've posted this clip before of Bing team rider Harry Gale but I just can't get over how cold it must be surfing at a place that has snow on the ground instead of sand. I love summer :)

Bing NR Slim's for Oceanstyle Longboards in West OZ.

How clean and classy is this NR Slim?? This is one of the slim's that's heading over to WA when they arrive. Both have been glassed in volan to add a little extra weight for the extra glide... This model features a semi-pig outline with a slightly pulled in nose and slightly wider tail but keeps the noseriding features of the BN Lightweight with it's concave nose and foiled rails. Give Toby at Oceanstyle a call for more info, 08 9336 7969.

Seaworthy: 1 of my favourites.

I've been seeing plenty of previews from Nathan Oldfields short movie called Cobblestone-Slipperies with Dane Peterson and it made me sit down and watch one of my favourite surf flicks, Seaworthy. Enjoy.

Deus Surf Swap 3

Overcast skies and the chance of rain kept the crowds down a little on the swap meet this time. I didn't get the chance to have a good walk around but I saw plenty of people carrying their new found treasures under their arm. A good day overall.
These photo's were taken by the local Deus photographer (sorry, I don't know his name) check out more pics here:

I'm going to order a couple of these little Puck's for stock and one for myself. Here's a short discription about the board.
Wedge cedar stringer, Simmons style inspiration, flat rocker for shorter ride-ability and wave catching, rolled bottom entry w/ rolled panel vee, works supreme in most wave conditions from beach breaks to points. A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR QUIVER!!!!!

Firsthand: Chris Del Moro

Chris is one of my favorite surfers by far. Whether he's riding a 5'11" quad or his 9'6" Bing Elevator, the guy rips. He loves life and appreciates every moment.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010


10 new boards in this week. The white board in the bottom photo is the first Bing Spork we've brought in to OZ. This one's a demo 5'11" quad for Six Ounce @ Bondi. The amazing looking tangerine Synchro's for Heritage Surf, Manly and Fly Boardriding Shop have grabbed the 7'2" Bing Karma.
In the top photo there's a mixture of Bing Lovebirds, BN Lightweights (was called the NR-2) and a Silver Spoon.
