7'0" & 8'0" Bing Silver Spoon mini noseriders.

These Silver Spoons are proving to be a ball of fun. They'll start arriving at the end of November so let me or one of the shops know you're keen to get your hands on one. If you like yours a little bigger we've got them up to 9'10".
The yellow's a 7'0" and the peach one's an 8'0".

Bing day @ Deus

Spent yesterday with the guys at Deus running through the Bing range. They're all geared up ready to go with a nice bunch of Bings and some 1-off stained glass Rainbow Fin Co fins.

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.

vintage longboarding david nuuhiwa.

Nuuhiwa was like a rock star, everywhere he went people would crowd around to see him. Such an advanced surfer for him time and he's still surfing today.

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:
