2011 Hawaiian Islands Vintage Surf Auction
July 22 & 23rd, 2011 Blaisdell Center, Honolulu
Bing Transition Pintail 8'2" circa 1968
This is a beautiful example of the transition shape "Pocket Rocket" pintail design of the later '60s. With boards going shorter in the winter of 1967, by early 1968 nearly two feet of length was gone.
This "Custom Designed" Bing represented what "was happening" for the time. Psychedelic light blue "Tiger Stripe" bottom and lap. Clear deck with black pin W.A.V.E. Set fin box, with color matching Hi-performance fin. Distinctive BING logo and board number #10487.
Filling the void between the long boards and the shorter boards to come, while this design saw a limited period of acceptance, it was certainly one from the creative era!
Pre-auction estimate: $1250 - $2000. NO RESERVE!
