There were so many local stand out surfers, families, local legends, Bing team riders, hipsters and tons of cool old Bings. All in all 9 states were represented from California to Florida, NYC, NJ, Connecticut, Deleware, Maryland, PA and Massachusettes...not a bad showing. For me, the coolest boards I saw were brought by local surf legend Skip Fazio...a vintage emerald green Lightning Bolt with an electric blue bolt (used to hang over the counter of our 1st shop) and a near mint vintage Bing Nuuhiwa Noseriding Model. Personally, I had such a blast catching up with old friends, spending time with my family, the OLC crew and Bing, Matt and Margaret....what a cool day! Bob Barth showed up to catch up with Bing. Bob owned a shop in Brielle...West Wind Surf Shop... in the mid to late 60s and he carried Bing and Rick Surfboards exclusively. It was really cool to see these 2 catch up after all these years.
Just when you thought you saw so many Vintage Bings, local legend Carl Danish rolled up in his pick up truck with a dozen Vintage Bings. No padding, no straps, covered with wax and dirt...each one had a story and he let Bing and Matt hear each one. The coolest comment when Bing asked him how he got so many was..."I had a bunch more, but they were to deep under other vintage logs". What a cool guy.

|Yea...he's walking on that one|
Thanks so much to all my buddies and family that helped out so much...the day and event wouldn't have been pulled off without you guys. I'll pay you back...rest asured. Thanks to Harry for bringing the best ever coffee...Harry & Beans and to Pat for bringing the grilling food and Scott for supplying the grill and the boards that were hanging in the LB Grill.
Thanks for another awesome day and I look forward to the next one.
