McKevlin's first became a dealer for Bing Surfboards back in the late 60's. Back then, Bing Copeland, an absolute icon of modern surfing, was the head honcho. He visited Folly Beach personally and convinced Ted and Dennis McKevlin to give his boards a try. In '74 G&S took over producing the boards, then Mike Eaton took over the reigns throughout the 80's and 90's. In 2000 Matt Calvani became the head shaper for Bing. Matt has been shaping since 1988 and previously worked for the likes of Shoreline Glassing, Tom Stanton, Hap Jacobs, Dennis Jarvis of Spyder, Becker, Lance Carson, and Rick Surfboards. Matt has managed to balance his respect for Bing's authentic historical importance alongside his own modern techniques, new materials, and new styles of surfing and surfboard building. Quite a few of Bing's original models are here practically unchanged as well as many progressive, new shapes.
