Bing Dharma Surfboard

I bought this little beauty last year, and have barely been out on it due to lack of free time.

Its a 6’2 Bing Dharma, Simmons-inspired retro fish with quad fin setup. Shaped in California by Matt Calvani. Slightly rolled bottom transitioning into a vee. Concave deck with beveled, turned down rails. Volume is around 39L. Wide/Butt swallow tail. Pretty flat rocker for glide and paddle power. 6+4oz on top, 4oz on the bottom. Volan cloth.

Good for waist high mush to overhead barrels – have yet to see overhead barrels!

All photos were taken on the iPhone 5s. I’ll get round to taking some better ones with a proper camera someday.

If you would like to know more about this board feel free to ask as question.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

The First Faint Noise of Gently Moving Water….

This scene caught my eye on a recent visit to Dun Laoghaire: The words of James Joyce in the foreground, and in the background, right of centre,  the controversial new library.

Living Art Project

Wexford Arts Centre recently commissioned me to photograph a workshop as part of the Living Art Project. The class was run by Orla Bates, and took place at St. Ann’s NS, Rathgarogue, New Ross.

Orla is very good with the children, and they were all enthusiastic, creating some great work. SB_LA_20140129_0131_web
