Emma Elwin paid Bing Surfboards a visit the other day and found a new dream profession...

Adam making their mini pintail ready for surf.

Yesterday we went to visit the factory of Bing surfboards. They have been making surfboards since 1959 so they really know what they are doing. The visit was like being a kid in a candy store! The shop manager Adam showed us around and told us about the different boards. It was such a treat seeing all the craftsmanship behind make each board.

I am so happy that we started our surf week there and got such a nice welcome by the guys in the shop. I always wanted to visit a shapers quarters since I secretly would love to work in a board shop. And my expectations where well meet, I might be romanticizing working there, but wouldn’t be great to make something as amazing as a surfboard with your bare hands?! If I ever decided to change carrier, I know where to start looking. They ship world wide if your looking to buy!
