Bing Copeland began surfing at the Manhattan Beach pier in 1949 at age 13, and by the fall of 1959 he had opened his first surf shop with his friend Rick Stoner. Bing Surfboards quickly became one of the most influential surfboard manufactures of the sixties and early seventy’s, renowned for its expert craftsmanship. From his magic nose riders for legends like David Nuuhiwa, to his work with the Campbell Brothers and the introduction of the Bonzer, one of the most unique and enduring designs of the 60’s, his influence on surfing is profound. Bing Surfboards has gone through many changes throughout the years, but it has always remained true to the roots of surfing. Under the expert guidance of master shaper Matt Calvani, Bing Surfboards continues to refine classic nose riding boards and create innovative modern surf craft. Their logo remains one of the most iconic and recognizable in all of surfing, and Carver is proud to collaborate with such an icon. .
