Bing Dharma Review

What the Bing Surfboards site says about the Dharma:

‘The Dharma blends modern surfing with the subtleties of riding a retro fish. This board was designed to catch a lot of waves, supplying endless amounts of fun to wave riders alike. Matt and I set out to design a board that was not only fast down the line but also turned with laser sharp precision and could pivot in the pocket. The flat nose rocker gives you optimum glide and paddle. The beveled rail and concave deck concept lessens the volume for increased sensitivity in rail-to-rail turns. The butt tail provides multiple pivot points for quick direction changes. The outcome of this quad-finned, butt-tail wave whip is hands-down the most fun fish I’ve surfed. This design works great back-side and front and is a perfect blend of front-foot speed and back-footed shredding. Suitable for clean lines, barrel riding, full rail turns and a perfect platform to take your aerial antics to the next level. Enjoy the ride and share the stoke. –Chris Del Moro. Average nose: 17 ½”, Average tail: 17 ½”’

What people are saying about it:

“The Bing Dharma is a really fun, fast, flowy board to ride; great in smaller, mushier surf. If you’re looking to get over the summer small wave doldrums, this is a great option. You can see it’s got the big, wide fishy nose, wide point forward and the width carries, basically, all the way through to this cool little butt tail they have at the back. This doesn’t have the kind of typical retro tail that you see with the big ‘V’ sticking out. This helps with a little bit of a release and may be a little bit closer to what you might be riding on a shortboard, if you have a rounded square or a squash tail.” – Benny on CompareSurfboards.com


“I love it. I don’t know much about surfboard construction, but if you’re looking to transition from a big board to a smaller board or maybe you just don’t get out much and are a little out of shape, this board is magical.”
– cheryl legaspi on CompareSurfboards.com

“I’ve surfed my 5’8 Dharma (32.4 litres volume) for nearly two years now and LOVE it — found it as easy to surf as my 5’10 Speed Dialer (I’m 11.5st and 5’11). There’s something about the width and foil (the nose and tail are thin with most of the volume under your belly) that helps with wave-catching and seems to make it easier to surf than you’d expect. I can get knee-high waves on the Dharma – if it comes to it!” – EasyTom on MagicSeaweed.com

“The deck rocker is pretty flat and the deck is very flat – slightly concave, actually. The rails are beveled, which helps allow this flat deck. The thin rails also help keep more foam in the middle of the board where you want it for float and paddling, and less on the rail where you don’t need it. The combo provides a very stable platform and a sensitive rail. The bottom rocker is probably more pronounced than a classic fish, which I like. The thin overall foil helps it feel alive.” – Ryan on thirdcoastsurfshop.com
