The Surf Thump offers you versatile handling without sacrificing the paddling and gliding benefits that makes us all love longboards in the first place.  

The Surf Thump will feel noticeably more lively than the Lumberjack, and easier to maneuver because of the thumb-shaped tail.  If you surf a variety of spots and breaks, this board might just be your new best friend.  

As a side benefit, this is the only longboard in our range that we recommend any fin ranging from the D-Fin to the Pin Fin, so get creative when it comes to trying different fin templates in the Thump.

RECOMMENDED BETWEEN:

  • 9’2 and 9’8 long
  • 17 3/4" nose
  • 16 1/2" tail

DIMS + VOLUMES:

  • 9’2”   22 5/8   by 3"
  • 9’4”   22 3/4   by 3"
  • 9’6”   22 7/8   by 3.06"

9’6 Surf Thump... I love this board

I’ve been dreaming about getting an almond board ever since I first walked in their first shop a couple years back. I finally was able to custom order a longboard and the guys at the shop helped me pick the best board for my needs. I wanted an all around good longboard that I can surf pretty much anywhere. I own many boards but if i can only bring one or two boards on a trip this is the one. I’ve surfed it in 2’ Newport and overhead pleasures point and truly love everything about it. I always have fun on this thing. Long noserides guaranteed. The craftsmanship and quality that goes into this board is amazing. Also, this board is durable!!! Has encountered countless rocks and barley scratched it... thank you for making amazing surf craft and yes definitely buy an almond

Dream Gliding - 9’6 pig

I’d been following almond for a while and had my eyes on the surf thump or the lumberjack... just fell in love with the design without even having been in one. I was scrolling through boards on Craigslist one day and came across a (basically) brand new 9’6 surf thump with a glasses in fatty wooden D fin. Talked to the guy but didn’t end up meeting for a couple months. Finally met up and I immediately fell in love with the board. He ended up giving me a killer deal and it’s basically been the only board I’ve been riding since. Glass job is impeccable, catches waves all day, an excellent nose rider. Totally in love with the board and had my expectations exceeded with almond’s quality. Cheers guys (;

9-4 SURF THUMP

AFTER ******* OVER SEVERAL 9-4 SURF THUMPS OVER THE PAST YEAR I FINALLY PULLED THE TRIGGER & PURCHASED A RAD ONE 2 WEEKS AGO. 1ST IT'S SO RETRO WITH AN UNREAL GLASSING JOB BY WATERMAN'S GUILD..."OLD SCHOOL" YELLOW/TAN TINT WITH DENIM BLUE OPAQUE RESIN PANELS TOP & BOTTOM UNDER THE GLOSS COAT & DOUBLE DARK STRINGERS. CHOSE A 10.5" VOLAN PIN FIN . I'VE SURFED IT 4 TIMES OVER PAST 2 WEEKS @ MIDDLES/TRESTLES IN WAVES RANGING FROM 3 FT TO 8 FT....IN GLASSY SMOOTH PERFECT PEELING PEAKS TO A TAD CHOPPY FROM WINDS. 1ST THE SURF THUMP PADDLES AND CATCHES WAVES LIKE A DREAM...SMOOTH GLIDE & EASY ENTRY FOR SURE. WITH THE 10'5" VOLAN PIN FIN ...IT TURNS ON A DIME WITH VERY LITTLE EFFORT. THUMB TAIL DESIGN REALLY WORKS. TAKE OFF BOTTOM TURNS...TURNING OFF THE TOP...CUTBACKS...EASY TO DO!!! IT KEEPS DOWN THE LINE SPEED ON TRACK WITH A STEP OR TWO FORWARD WHEN NEEDED TO GET PAST A SECTION. NOSE RIDES UNREAL...EXTREMELY STABLE ON THE NOSE . JUST AS THE ALMOND SURF THUMP MODEL SPEC CARD SAYS...IT OFFERS YOU VERSATILE HANDLING WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE PADDLING AND GLIDING BENEFITS OF A LONGBOARDS !!!! YES MY SURF THUMP IS RAPIDLY BECOMING MY NEW BEST FRIEND !!! SURF THUMP...I CALL IT A LONGBOARD THAT PERFORMS...NOT A PERFORMANCE LONGBOARD. ALSO, MANY THANKS TO ERICA WHO SOLD ME THE RAD BOARD & WESLEY WHO PLANTED THE SEED LAST YEAR @ THE ALMOND SHOWROOM. PS: I'VE BEEN SURFING LONGBOARDS SINCE 1960 WAS 13 YRS YOUNG...NOW 58 YRS LATER...I'M 71 YRS YOUNG & STILL SURFING 3-4 DAYS A WEEK...I'M ALSO A SURFBOARD COLLECTOR (65 BOARDS IN MY QUIVER) & SURF ART. STILL SUPER STOKED TO GET WET OFTEN !!!

Beyond Stoked

I had been dreaming of getting a longboard from Almond for way too long and this board did not disappoint. The process of custom ordering was super simple and on the very first wave I caught, it was clear that the board was something special. The quality of design and craftsmanship is clearly seen and felt in my board and I couldn't be more stoked on it.
