This video tells the story of CA based surfer Robin York, from Munich, Germany ordering his first custom single fin from Bing Surfboards, a legendary CA shaping label. The video offers a short interview with Matt Calvani, the Head Shaper at Bing Surfboards, and a look into Matt's shaping bay as he talks through the board's design. Notice the nod to Robin's Bavarian roots in the detailed Bavarian flag airbrush on the underside of the deck!
The film is shot and edited by Kay Madsen, a German surfer, cinematographer and editor also based in LA.
Thanks so much, Kay Madsen, for all the help in filming and editing this short portrait. You're a hero! And a huge thanks to Margaret Yao Calvani, General Manager at Bing Surfboards for inviting us down, to Kyle Chambers for his awesome photos and of course, to Matt Calvani for the incredible board you made me!
