Hi Benny, thanks for the video. Is it PU or epoxy? What kind of finish - gloss or sanded? Does it have a stringer? Btw, what do you think about stringer less boards, more specifically the ones with carbon in the middle? Cheers!

Hello Ben:  I liked your review on the Dharma.  I have been riding the Dharma for about 3 years and this coming weekend I will be picking up the Dharma 2.0.  Your point you made on the board rail at the mid section down to the tail is crucial.  Has a very good transition and rail design.  It has less volume like you mentioned since they shaved down the deck. The Dharma has a skatie feel, speed in at out of the turns. Too me it is night and day to a Bing Fish with keel fins.  That is a fun board but has a complete diferent feel, where it tracks on a wave.  I would like to mention there is no comparison to the Avg. Joe where the width is extremely wide transistioning too much through the hips in the tail.  It has too much volume; basically a squashed short board.   The Avg.Joe is sloppy on a wave with inconsistent speeds in the turns. It is almost like riding a boogie board.    Spot on on your review.  Thanks again! steve

@CompareSurfboards.com Ben, Thanks for the review on the Dharma. I really enjoy Bing designs. I look forward to the day you give the Quad Fish or Speed Square a go,
and post either reviews. Again thanks for the show and keep up the Stoke...Cheers

i literally put my toe through the tail of that board...their glass is VERY fragile...Btw...i emailed them to let them know...at no cost to them...and they made me feel like the dick and like it was my fault their glassing failed. I am not alone.  as many younger guys have been finding out, if you happen to catch a bit of air and miss the deck patch, the board is completely done. the patch is large, but shit happens. i do have a buddy who go the 2.0 version in EPOXY and has had no complaints.

Good review of the 2.0 Dharma. Any reviews of the original - still in production - Dharma? Ever surfed one? Would love to hear a comparison.

Hello CompareSurfboards.com,

Thanks for the review.  That's a pretty nice looking board.  Right not I surf a 9'2" nose rider and I'm looking to get into a shorter board.  What do you think of this as a transition board?  If not, this board can you recommend any others?  Thanks!

Hi Chick Flicks and Beer! (tee hee),

I think this is a good option for a transition board from a longboard but, of course, it's always a challenge to get used to something shorter! Give it time and patience!

Another good option - one I know a lot of longboarders go to in this exact situation - is a Rusty Dwart. The Dwart's standard dims are quite short but I know they do longer versions (6'6, 6'10, etc).

I hope this helps you!

All the best,
Benny

I love Bing boards but I wish they would make them with Epoxy glass and EPS foam.

@1k1ngst0n That sounds sensible!

I am considering it but I have 3 customs on order right now and should probably wait till I get them and try em out.

Yeah. They said they don't use epoxy.

Hey 1k1ngst0n, have you asked Bing if they would make a custom for you in epoxy/EPS?

Not a Small wave board! Just because its wide and and has lot more volume doesn't mean its a small wave summer board. Matt Calvani designed it with a fish in mind, so down the line speed but with the ability to sit nicely in the pocket. The Chopped swallow tail give a traditional feel but adds more release points for faster direction changes. Didn't even mention its ability to air like any other modern short board.
GET INTO IT DUDE!

Hey MaxyBills,

I really appreciate your comment; it's great to hear another perspective on the Bing Dharma. It's one of my all time favourite boards!

I am sorry you don't find the Dharma review helpful although it is based on my experience. I ride my Bing Dharma in small waves most of the time.

Regardless, a surfers skill set and personal preference will largely dictate what he or she can do with a board. For example, Craig Anderson can surf double overhead Greenbush on his Hypto Krypto while most mere mortals would struggle. I have a good mate who loves to surf his Firewire Sweet Potato when it's double overhead...it's just his thing.

Anyway, I did run the review by Matt at Bing and he felt it was pretty accurate but great to hear that you have the skills to do airs on your Dharma! Let Bing know, they will be stoked!

Check out the full review in the description - I go into more detail about the broad wave range of the Dharma there.

All the best,
Benny
