Raoul @ Sandtrax.

I love the colours in this shot taken by Toby Petley, owner of Oceanstyle Longboards in West OZ of Bing team rider Raoul on his Bing NR Slim. Raoul snuck in a late surf at Sandtrax last week and had it all to himself, makes me want to head over to WA.
They both spent a couple of weeks in Java recently, I'll post of few pics and a little wrap up of their trip soon.

New Bing model, the Speed Square.

Inspired by his fond childhood memories on a Mach-77 boogie board, Bing team rider, Chris Del Moro convinced shaper, Matt Calvani to help him recapture the magic in this modern-day twin-finned version called the Speed Square. Because of its short length, Matt added belly in the nose with a quick transition into a hard, tapered rail in the tail so that the board would be quick and responsive. He added a deep straight concave that runs from where your front foot sits through the tail of the board to gain efficiency in glide and maintained thickness in the tail to improve glide and wave-catching ability. The small twin keels maintain a “fin-less” riding quality but still allowing for some control. Ride it short, ride it fast and get ready for a whole lot of fun!

Scroll down the blog and watch "Bing Family Tree" vid. An amazing board.
