The board design that changed the world of surfing....In the early 70's Ben Aipa envisioned and created "Da Sting".
With it's unmistakable outline and army of legendary surfers surfing them, Da Sting went viral. This design ushered in one of the most explosive movements in surf history and provided Larry Bertlemann, Dan Kealoha, Buttons Kaluhiokalani, Mark Liddell and Mark Richards to name a few..the perfect board to take their surfing to levels the wrld had never seen....Today, The Stings obvious influence can be seen in every winged board you see.
This design was also known to have affected the skateboard world in a huge way. On a trip to California, Ben brought Larry Bertlemann along with him....when the legendary Doggtown Boys saw how Larry was surfing on his Sting and they began to copy his style on skateboards!
Base model available in Polyurethane Blank, single long box, 2 color airbrush and fine sand finish.
