 The story behind the painting "The Best of Time"

Bing Copeland and Rick Stoner introduced to 

New Zealand a new era in surfing by way of the

Velzy shaped surfboard in 1958. Which in turn would

be the start of Bing Surfboards and Rick Surfboards.

The same could be said about the balsa surfboards 

which Dale Velzy had shaped and Greg Noll and MIke Bright took over to Australia two years earlier in 1956.
