Bing Synchronizer

Bing Synchronizer

A spin-off of the original Bing Bonzer, Matt Calvani drew from his shortboard surfing background and discovered that with a quad fin setup in combination with the deep double-concaves of a Bonzer, he could simulate the turning characteristics of a thruster shortboard but maintain the speed of a quad fish. This model gives you every advantage of a fish’s glide and speed, while giving you the control, maneuverability and responsiveness of a shortboard. This is all due to the peak created by the double concaves acting as a center fin allowing for more stability. Ideal for a variety of wave conditions, from small to overhead waves, and being surfed tight in the pocket.
This board is available with the “Versa Plane” 5-fin box system which allows a surfer to ride the board with multiple fin configurations, i.e. single fin, twin-fin, quad-fin, traditional twinzer, keel twinzer, 5-fin bonzer, etc.

Bing Double Wing Quad

Bing Double Wing Quad

Standard Sizes: 5’2” to 6’6”
Nose: 16”
Middle: 20 1/4″ – 22”
Tail: 16 1/2“
Thickness: 2 3/8“ – 2 3/4”

The Bing Quad is the natural progression from the twin-fin fish. Drawing on 15 years of shortboard shaping experience, Matt Calvani has developed a quad-fin fish that is fast like a twin-fin but maintains control like a modern thruster, while giving you almost as much looseness and maneuverability as a modern-day shortboard. Where the twin-fin may not handle wave size and power as well, the Bing Quad excels in these conditions. This board is built with a double-wing swallow tail with a shorter board and wider outline and should be ridden 2” longer than the twin-fin fish.

Bing Single Wing Quad

Bing Single Wing Quad

Standard Sizes: 5’10” to 7’6”
Nose: 18”
Middle: 19” – 23”
Tail: 16“
Thickness: 2 1/2“ – 2 7/8”

The Bing Single-wing Quad is a modified version of the MR twin-fin of the late 1970s with a slightly flatter rocker and fuller outline. Progressing from the original twin-fin setup, Matt Calvani has added two smaller back fins to give the board more control and responsiveness. Working well in every day conditions from knee-high to double overhead waves, this board is ideal for longboarders looking to ride a smaller mid-length boards with plenty of glide. This board should be ridden 4-6 inches longer than the traditional twin-fin fish. Currently, Bing offers this model with Future fins, Canard fins, or ProBox fiberglass quad fins.

Bing Twin Fin Fish Surfboard

Bing Twin Fin Fish Surfboard

Standard Sizes: 5’4” to 6’2”
Nose: 17 1/2 “
Middle: 21 1/4 “ – 22 1/2”
Tail: 17 1/4 “
Thickness: 2 1/2“ – 2 3/4”

Drawing on several years of experience shaping shortboards for professionals and amateurs alike, Matt Calvani has developed a fish design that provides the glide of a longboard but the maneuverability and speed of a retro shortboard. Unlike any other fish on the market, the Bing Fish features the traditional outline from the 1970s and the progressive rail of a modern shortboard. Characterized by its fiber-glass kiel fins (glass-on or box), the Bing Fish possesses the perfect balance of width and thickness for any size waves. On the other end of the longboard spectrum, this model is essential in any quiver.

Bing Lotus

Bing Lotus

Standard Sizes: 6’0” to 7’0”
Nose: 18”
Middle: 19” – 23”
Tail: 16“
Thickness: 2 1⁄2“ – 2 7/8”

A cooperative design between Bing and Dick Brewer, this late 60s classic single-fin shortboard and first generation mini-gun is built for powerful surf and tube-riding. Its original wide nose plus narrow tail outline gives you ease of entry into waves while maintaining control in more powerful conditions. With a few refinements to its bottom and rails, this board can be ridden either as a shorter gun or as a mid-range down-the-line board and is ideal for the barrel.
