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.

Peninsula Documentary Indiegogo Campaign


PENINSULA is the tale of a journey from northern Italy to southern Italy to discover and describe where surfing in Italy came from and what it is like today. Luca Merli is the film maker and producer of this film. He has started an Indiegogo Campaign to help raise money for the completion of the film. Please visit the link below to help support the cause:

David Pecchi (one of the stars of the film) has donated his 1973-74 Bing Bonzer and is now for sale for $1,500 Euros. All the proceeds will go to fund the completion of this project. Please email Luca Merli at [email protected] if you’re interested in purchasing the surfboard.

1973 Bing Bonzer

This has been an ongoing passion project for Luca and his partners to create and fund this film. They are now in the home stretch of coloring, processing and editing which is always exciting. As with any independent film funding is an issue and your support will go a long way in helping them complete this surfing documentary. The film also features one of our Bing team riders, Alessandro Ponzanelli. Please visit their Indiegogo page and pledge your support for the film.
