What the Bing Surfboards site says about the BN Lightweight:
‘A lightweight version of the Original Bing Noserider, the BN Lightweight incorporates the same noserider fundamentals (nose concave, 50/50 rails, tail rocker) with a single stringer configuration, thinner volume, wider outline, lighter glassing and fin box, giving you an overall lighter, more versatile traditional log with fast trim speed and solid noseriding ability minus the weight and bulkiness. Ideal for small to head high waves in any type of wave and great for the traveler who wants to bring the Original Noserider but doesn’t want the hassle or for an introductory traditional noserider for those who are transitioning from a high performance longboard or shortboards. Average nose: 18 ½”, Average tail: 16 ¼”
What people are saying about it:
“Why did I buy this board? Honestly, it all started when I borrowed Matt’s BN Lightweight when we were in Mexico a few months ago. It was everything I wanted in the water – fast along the face, trimmed well from the tip and turned like a traditional log. It was wonderful. I surfed everything from four foot peelers to eight foot A-frames. I couldn’t help but want one! And I felt like it would be the perfect companion for my Feral Pig.” – PeanutButterCoast.com
“I surfed this board for a couple of weeks when we where at that amazing point break in Mexico. That was a 9,8 though. This is a 9,6. I ordered a 9,8 but Margaret had her finger in the game of course, and made it 9,6.
A 9,6 classic Bing noserider, aka BN lightweight. Same type of board that Bing Copeland did back in the days. So different from the longboards I am used to surf in sweden, it’s a challenge riding and controlling it, you gotta move so much, all the time. But when you get to the nose it just runs and runs and runs.. So much fun.
Went back up the coast to my home break and took it out. Malibu where supporting me from the beach.” – SunshineStories.com
“Love this board. Not at first but by the 5th session it felt good! It’s a great balance of a traditional log and modern noserider. It definitely has a sweet spot that allows fun trimming through faster sections.” – RiverandSalt.com
