What the Bing Surfboards site says about the Puck:
‘The answer to the backside limitation of the keel fish, the Puck is a slight variation and progression from the Bing Mini Simmons design. Adopting the same outline, deck and bottom contours and thinned out arc tail design, the Puck is configured with a quad fin setup for added sensitivity and maneuverability, quick directional change capability and more control in powerful hollower surf. The board has a little nose rocker that runs straight through with no concave in the bottom and an S deck that pushes up the rocker so that you can maintain volume but increase paddle ability. These features combined with the rolled entry with vee going out the tail allow the Puck to thrive in mushy waves, coasting through slow sections and racing through fast sections. Ideal for longboarders looking to transition to a shorter board or shortboarders looking for the ultimate small-wave wizard, the Puck is tons of fun for everyone! Average nose: 19”, Average tail: 18 ½”’
What people are saying about it:
“I would say the Puck would probably work in small clean waves to head highish… the Puck would be tougher in peakier, hollower, or choppier waves.” – user word2bigbird on swellinfo.com
“I’ve surfed both the puck and the dharma, so fun.” – user Facebit on Surfer Mag
“The Puck is a Simmons that has been left in the oak barrel to age for 30 more years. At the hands of Mr. Calvani it has become a modern day refined version. Developing in areas where the Simmons lacked. With the quad fin it will have more hold and responsiveness. Also a slightly pulled in arc tail, will loosen the board up and allow for quick directional changes. This board is all about speed and will have no problem finding it, even in the mushiest surf.” – islandsurfco.ca
“I tested Puck last week – I love it! Waiting for mine.” – Patrik Stenefjäll on Facebook
“Puck seems to be thicker and narrower, so that combined with the tail shape, I would think it’d be better in steeper or bigger waves than the Dharma.” – user sjj342 on Reddit

We’d all love to be surfing endless hollow barrels, but let’s be real, that’s just often not the case. A lot of days are just little mush days we want to make the most of. If you’ve ever felt that and don’t want to pull out the log, the Bing Puck is just for you. The Puck thrives in mushy waves, coasting through slow sections and racing through fast sections.
Here is @adam_cap showing us that on mush days a short board can have just as much fun // Video by @kachamba // #bingsurfboards #thecraftsince59
