The Lumberjack

8 reviews   |  

Reclaim the golden era of surfing with our timeless classic, the Lumberjack

Just add the "Huck" pivot fin, and you have a board that catches waves early and often, and provides that classic longboard feel, without sacrificing modern demands like noserides and pivot-turns. 

The Lumberjack has been a top selling longboard for 9 consecutive years.

Custom 9'2" Lumberjack

I got a custom 9'2" Lumberjack as a birthday gift for my wife...and I am almost stealing it from her! Man, what a board. Best log I have ever ridden. Ordering process was super smooth, folks at the shop are great and very helpful, and the board was ready in just over 3 months - which is super fast these days. I know some local shapers in Santa Cruz who are taking 12-18 months to finish a custom order. The Lumberjack paddles extremely easy, and it feels super stable. It almost screams at you: "Go to the nose, son". You really have to make an effort to miss a wave on this board. I love the glide and how easy it feels to cross-step on the board. Last but not least, the board is such a beauty. People keep staring and asking about it. You almost just want to hang it on the wall - but hey, take it out cause you won't regret it. Thanks, Almond!!

Great Cross-stepping and Noseriding board!! Almond's finest.

As Almond advertised, Lumber Jack model is pure wave catching machine and built to noseride. Low rocker boosts its paddle power and makes it easier to get in to the wave with 1/2 an effort I have to do with other longboards. 9'4" Lumber Jack was my first purchase with Almond and ever since I keep going back to the shop because of their quality. I would recommend Lumber Jack model to anybody who wants to work on their cross stepping and noseriding skill. Works exceptionally good at: San O, Doheny, Blackies, Malibu First point, and Churches points. (I had a surfthumb model but for stepping and noseriding purpose, Lumber Jack is go to board).

Perfect board for east coast waves

As someone who mostly surfs the mid-Atlantic beach breaks (Jersey, Delaware, etc.), the Lumberjack is a perfect board (mine is 9'8"). It has tons of lift and can paddle swiftly into waves that like to crash like curtains dropping. But when things set up enough that you can actually ride the line, the Lumberjack makes for an amazing ride. Its stable but maneuverable. The Lumberjack is perfect for those ever so often "poor to fair" days- you can quickly paddle in and ride waves that others miss. It is such a fun board to ride and looks amazing as well. I couldn't be happier with a board! Thanks Almond!

The dream is real

I’ve been surfing for over 20 years. In that time I have owned a crazy number of boards in various styles from various shapers. I’m not a great surfer, but I’m not a bad surfer either. Just an average dude in any given SoCal lineup. My 9’6’’ Lumberjack is my first Almond and it will not be my last. Firstly, this is the best service I have received at any surf shop ever. The team made me feel so confident in my purchase and really loved talking me through the different models. As for my board - The Lumberjack just straight up works. I’m using a Log Rhythm fin and prefer it to the Huck. Glides, noserides and trims with zero surprises. I use mine at Blackies, DoHo, Church and Sano. Works great at all, I LOVE this board! If you took the time to read this review I’m assuming you are considering purchasing a Lumberjack for yourself. Do it, you’ll have zero regrets. See you in the lineup.
