R-Series 5'4 Menu | Jungle

Rugged, Recyclable, and Ready-to-Rip

At 5’4 long and 36L, the R-Series Secret Menu is designed for the optimal blend of paddle-ability and rip-ability. 

It packs a lot of volume, so it can be ridden shorter than you might expect.  The wide tail is fantastic for speed-generating, even in smaller surf. 

Because of the added foam under your chest, it catches waves early and often—think of it as a longboarder's favorite small-board. 


The R-Series construction is designed with a deep awareness of the role we play in the bigger picture. The materials used in the R-Series surfboards can—and will be—recycled at the end of the board’s life, through our Recycling Loyalty Program. Please refer to our limited warranty for any questions regarding the R-Series surfboard.

Early & often

After now having owned an r-series secret menu for about a year, I felt it was time to give my two cents. This is by far one of my favorite and most used boards in my quiver. From punchy shore break to mushy rollers throughout the Orange County coast, this board covers it all. I recently fell in love with this board again after the winter wave machine shut down and it has gone rather flat. For a little bit I forgot how easily one can catch waves on this board - making fun out of a session one wouldn’t have gone out otherwise. It’s also a game changer not having to worry about wax, water logging, or delamination since there is no plastic slick bottom. If there was a surfing video game, the r-series secret menu would be one of the hidden board unlocks that lets you catch and ride any wave. I highly recommend that everyone add one of these boards to their quiver - from beginner to expert. Thanks Almond for the endless fun, cheers!

Fun Foamie!

Very happy with the R-Series. Paddles and planes easily, catches all sorts of waves well and it's easy to duck dive. Probably the closest a foamie can get to a PU or Epoxy board.

I’m in!

Loved my new Shaka board! Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical at first but after my second wave the board is sooooo fun!! Really loose and skaty! It’s almost like you are ridding one of those Carver Lost skateboards! Yewww!!!!

It can float me...

I am 6%E2%80%992%E2%80%9D and 245lbs. This board floats and paddles like a champ. I%E2%80%99ve been surfing 2-3%E2%80%9D RJs and it has no trouble getting me into waves and down the line. I have been surfing almond boards for 10+ year and I can%E2%80%99t say enough about how fun this board has been! %0D%0A%0D%0AGreat for those days when you have to go straight to work and not worry about leaving your board in the truck all day. %0D%0A%0D%0AThanks Guys!!
