What the Bing Surfboards says about the Pintail Lightweight:
‘A single-fin surfboard first designed by Dick Brewer in the late 60s featuring the first hard edge along the tail and a softer more traditional rail forward from the tail, the Pintail Lightweight is an all-around and functional design for medium to head high waves. With a moderately wide nose, slightly turned down rails going into a hard edge, ending in a rounded pintail. This board is glassed lighter (6+6oz deck, 6oz bottom) for increased maneuverability, staying true to its “Lightweight” name. Average nose: 18 ½”, Average Tail: 15 ½”’
What people are saying about it:
“Surfed 40 years (winters) longboard and short board , best longboard all rounder I’ve ever had . Worn out my 9-4 floral will order another one” – User Peter Dudley on SurfScience
“I feel like the board isn’t buoyant enough.” – User Will on SurfScience
“That Bing speed shape ‘the link’ is a very, very nice board.. saw it at adams place a while back and then saw it in action when it was owned (briefly) by a mate and fellow forum member.. Not sure how much of a nose rider it is.. i’d say not.. but certainly built for juice!
“I think you can’t go wrong with the bing pintail lightweight.. another option is the bing lightweight step deck (at least thats what it used to be called) Soft square tail, slightly pulled nose, step deck and no concave but a good nose rider all the same and built for bigger waves.. another mate had one and it seemed a very versatile board.. but the pintail would be my choice i think..” – User Ears on MagicSeaweed
“I surf mostly New Jersey beach break which can be waist high and glassy to overhead and powerfull. I also switch to an egg when the surf gets overhead.
That being said, my top longboards for waist high to head high surf (in no order):
1-Hap Jacobs performance 422 (more turn, less glide)
2-Hap Jacobs traditional 422 (more glide, less turn)
3-Hap Jacobs East Coast model (a little of each)
4-Clean Ocean Surfboards North East noserider
5-Bing pintail lightweight” – User NJRider on JamBoards.com
