From filmmaker Luca Merli: “We were in San Diego recently to shoot the shaping of Alessandro Ponzanelli’s new board. It was shaped by Matt Calvani for an upcoming webisode for Onde Nostre. While visiting Santa Barbara, we met up with Oliver Parker. He lent Ale’ his old Bing from the 60’s to try. It was amazing.”

Probably about 15 years ago or so, I was spending a summer on Cape Cod working and surfing and I went down to the beach on this stormy ass cold day and there was a crew of lifeguards hanging out and surfing. The had this old greg noll long board that someone must have bought in the ’60s and had left to the care of the lifeguards of that beach, they had attached a leash by drilling a hole in the skeg, but man what a ride that thing was. They gave me a few waves on that thing. It weighed a ton and turned like a tank, but that thing could surf. That day is one of my fondest surfing memories.
