Used - Bing Concave Keel 5'2
On our recent trip to California we picked up this beauty from the Bing Surfshop in Encinitas. 5'2 x 20.5 x 2.25 @ 26.8l. This board is so fun and fast. Barely ridden, but she has signs of use on the deck, and it had a rough ride home so there is an immaculately repaired ding in one rail.
We will let Bing explain the finer details of the board:
"Truly an evolution of the traditional fish.
The Concave Keel is the newest fish in the Bing lineup. Designed to be an every day board not just a small wave cruiser. It excels in a variety of surf ranging from 2ft to a few feet overhead. Beach breaks, reefs, and points. The Concave Keel paddles great and gets into wave easily . Speed is built into this board. What make this board so unique and special is with the extreme concave, we are able to accelerate the tail rocker in the last 6 inches off the board allowing for surprisingly tighter arches, snaps in the pocket and off the lip. This gives you a level of control that most traditional fishes don't have. The board is extremely versatile for intermediate to experienced surfers. You can ride the Concave Keel 4 to 6 inches shorter than our normal short board. Important to note the Concave Keel is only available with glass on fins due to extreme concave running through the tail. We can't accommodate fin boxes due to the angle of the box cant inward compromising the board's performance. I would like to give credit to Ryan Burch and Rich Pavel and many other surfers on the inspiration to see the traditional fish as more than a retro design. - Matt Calvani"
