One mans treasure.

Thought you might be interested in this collection of surfboards and surf memorabilia that I was proudly shown. The photo's don't do it any justice, the gear was piled from the floor to the ceiling, including the ceiling. MR twinnies scattered through out, McCoy Tri & Laser Zaps in one part stacked 3 deep, a 7'2" Pat Rawson shaped for Tom Carroll and surfed at Hawaii in 1989 (with a pair of Tom's Quiksilver boardies). An amazing collection and a passionate surfer and collector.

Vintage Surf & Skate Emporium.

I called in to visit Shorty from Vintage Surf & Skate at Anna Bay, Port Stephens. What a great trip back in time in the history of surfing. Surfboards, skateboards, books, anything surf related squeezed into one room.

Sacred Craft, San Diego. 14th - 15th August 2010.

I'm sooo looking forward to going to Sacred Craft in August. I'll be helping out with the guys from Bing Surfboards and drooling over all the fibreglass creations. With a bit of luck we'll stumble across a contact for board bags and leashes that we can bring back to OZ and offer to our fine customers. The rest of my trip will be spent at the factory watching the masters at work. Damn I love my job.

Picture perfect.

This is a carbon copy of how I used to draw pictures of waves when I was at school. Mmmm shows how much I listened to the teacher. Can't you just picture yourself tucked in the shady part of this wave??

Rasta & the Lotus.

Classic Rasta style somewhere in Italy surfing a Bing OT Lotus.

New Bing model the 'Levitator'.

Standard Sizes: 9’0” to 10’0”+ Nose: 19 ½” Middle: 23 ½”-24 ¾” Tail: 16 ½” Thickness: 2 ¾”-3 ¼”
Living up to its name, the Bing Levitator does just that. Adopting a similar deck and rocker line to the Bing Elevator, the Levitator combines step deck and concave with a wide outline and foiled down rails, allowing you to defy the laws of gravity and noseriding. Find yourself clearing through every section you encounter while still hanging ten with insane amounts of speed on the nose. Where the Elevator is more ideal in steeper beach break stylewaves, the Levitator works best in waves with a little more slope, like your local point or reef break. Ideal for people who like more volume with stability, glide and lift in the nose, the Levitator is an easy beginner noserider as well as a versatile board for the more advanced surfer.
