Yesterday was Cam Oden’s 26th birthday. Cam was the first person to order a custom surfboard when I opened the first shop on Old Newport Blvd in 2009. He was also the first true full-time hire, and has been learning and growing along with me ever since. Cam is responsible for many of the visual logos and imagery that you see at Almond. Everything from product photography to branding and t-shirt graphics has Cam’s thumb-print on it. Thankful for the last 6 years, and looking forward to what lies ahead buddy.
