Bing Swee Pea Review

What the Bing Surfboards site says about the Swee Pea:

‘After a full season of riding and perfecting the Dharma, Matt Calvani wanted to continue the evolution with the Swee’ Pea so he moved the wide point slightly back and pulled in the nose/tail. Going with more curve on the bottom and a single deeper concave out the wide rounded tail makes this board surf top to bottom better and handle more critical drops and sections. Then he increased the tail rocker to ensure the water would release enabling the surfer to drive this board hard off the bottom and release off the top with controlled speed. Like the Simmons and Dharma, he maintains the thinned out tail and rail for increased sensitivity. He also eliminated the concave deck, which was intended to maintain the Dharma’s flat rocker but increase the board’s sensitivity, and went with a slightly domed deck to get optimized floatation for surfers of varying builds and weight. The rounder outline, in comparison to the parallel Dharma, also lends itself to quicker, more responsive direction changes and can handle more power and speed. The Swee’ Pea is ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers, looking for a board for small to head high plus days. This model can be ridden at the same length as your Dharma, but unlike its predecessor can be sized up to much longer lengths to suit a wider range of surfers. Average nose: 16 ¼” to 16 ¾” Average tail: 17 ¼” to 16 ½”’

What people are saying about it:

Rode this thing yesterday and today at pretty small, but still fun, Beacons. First session was a bit off since I was still trying to figure out how to ride this thing, but today I had a blast. I caught a ton of waves, and really started to work out how this board likes to be surfed.” – user nubreed71 on Surfer Mag

Progressive shortboard, egg shape shred machine!!! Features a flat rocker profile for ease of paddling and versatility, perfect for accessing small or larger wave conditions, contemporary bottom and rail line with slight single concave in tail.” – Icons of Surf

The Swee Pea certainly is a fun board in every sense of the word. Have had my 6’10” for over a year and it’s my favorite all round board. It could even be a one board quiver as I have ridden it in everything from waist high summer surf to overhead Canary Island points. I’m about 5’9″ and 170lbs., been surfing a long time so am very old, but the board even works for me.” – user boatbuilder on swaylocks.com
