Late ’70s Bing Bonzer

Another well-known transitional board from the 70s, designed by the Campbell Brothers with the help of Bing’s head shaper at the time, Mike Eaton, the Bing Bonzer was one of the first tri-fin surfboards to be built. This board is characterized by its double concave bottom, two long low-profile side fins, and single center box setup. A board built for speed and drive off of the turns similar to riding the edge of a ski/snowboard, the Bing Bonzer is a retro glimpse into today’s surfing and maintains its functionality in medium to large hollow and powerful surf. (excerpt from the Bing Surfboards website). This surfboard was recently donated by Phillip “Flippy” Hoffman.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
