Perfect winters day.

I love days like this. Cool winters day with light n/w winds puffing all day long, water temp still around 18 degrees and not to many people out. The crowds will be a different story next week with school holidays starting. Thanks again swellnet.com

2-stringer Bing Twin-Fin Fish.

If your looking for something a little different check this out. Matt's made a 5'7" 2-stringer (cedar) Twin-Fin Fish with glass-on wood fins. Love the colour of this seaweed tint.

NR Slims for Oceanstyle.

Got a couple of Bing NR Slims in for Oceanstyle Longboards in WA. The top one's for shop owner Toby and the bottom one belongs to Raoul. These are the first Slims that we've got in and they feel mighty fine under the arm. I'll wait and get some feed back on the boards for the guys in WA, but we may add this model to our stock list.

All lined up ready to go.

I'm loving these single fin OT Lotus. We've got them in stock from 6'2" to 6'6" with a burnt orange 6'4" on it's way over from California. Perfect for those small to head high waves.

I'd love to surf this before I send it up to Sandy Feet, I don't think Mike would be to happy with me if I do. I'm heading over to the factory in a few months, hopefully they'll have a demo I can surf while I'm there.

Colourful skies over Merewether.

Super crisp morning with a colourful sky. Something I like about getting up for the early surf is the array of colours we get to see as the sun pops it's head over the horizon. It's the best part of the day. Pic courtesy of Swellnet.com

We hear about the transition from balsa to foam , from long board to short board, from California to Hawaii. Get ready for a trip back in time to the beginning of modern day shaping.

Lincon's 57 wagon.

Lincon's always had some yanky in his blood. Now he's living in California, married to a Californian and driving an American icon. Even his name's American. Do you like the old log with the offset twin stringer??

Bings have arrived.

We got a nice delivery of Bings in this week from a little 5'10" Synchronizer up to a 9'10" NR-2. The yellow/green Silver Spoon looks amazing along with the maroon Pintail Lightweight. Some of these boards will be heading to our dealers this week so keep an eye out for them.

Sandy Feet Surf Co now @ Port Macquaire.

Mike and Kim from Sandy Feet Surf Co have moved their shop up the road to Port Macquarie. The new shop has the same feel as their old one at North Haven but they've now added some new brands like Ando and Friends, Hippy Tree, Gatho Herio and Critical Slide and of course Bing Surfboards. They've always got a nice selection of vintage boards on offer as well. Call in and say hello next time you're in the area.
