The Bing Crew Enjoying Some SW/NW Mixed Swell

This week in sunny San Diego we were greeted with a nice mix of SW and NW swells giving us some fun waves up and down our coast. Reports were coming in of a lot of places being really fun and a lot bigger than everyone had anticipated. North County San Diego loves the crossed up swells and Encinitas was benefiting from this new ocean energy. On Monday the winds calmed down, the sun came out and the guys took some time off from the factory to paddle into some really fun waves.

Adam Cap manages the factory floor at Bing Surfboards and also has a really nice flowing style. He’s seen riding a 7’2″ Pintail Mini with a single fin setup. Mick Rodgers is a Bing Team rider with his own surfboard model The Mr. Rodgers but he decided to mix it up with a 8’0″ Collector in a single fin setup for this session. James Parry also rides for Bing and he seemed to spend most of his time up on the tip of his California Square Tail. The UK transplant always makes it look so easy logging time on the last two inches of his surfboard.

We hope you were able to get out there in between the clouds and the wind. There’s been some great moments and it still looks like there’s some surf.

BING SURF SHOP: Danny Hess Boards


The Bing Surf Shop in Encinitas is proud to announce that we carry Danny Hess Handplanes and Belly Boards. If you’ve ever wanted to have a reason to get in the water more then you’ll want to get one or both of these items. They can turn any mediocre day into one of the most fun days ever. These boards allow you to look at more of your local surf breaks when you’re checking them, and with the small size you can always have it with you.

Does it look crowded outside but there is a small peeling barrel inside with no one on it? Then these tools will let you take advantage of it and avoid the crowds. It’s amazing how much faster you go with the hand plane or belly board allowing you to get barreled on the tiniest of waves. Smiles guaranteed.

Built by master wood working craftsman Danny Hess from Northern California. You know each one is a work of functional art that will last decades. Call or visit the Bing Surf Shop to get one.
