R-Series 8'0 Joy | JUNGLE

108 reviews   |  

"The R-Series Joy is the best board for beginner to intermediate surfers looking to build confidence in the water."

Beat the crowd with The Joy, our most popular, and most versatile surfboard model. 

 At 8'0 long and 22" wide, the R-Series Joy is designed to be the go-to surfboard for all ages and stages. (Appropriate for surfers from 65 lbs to 250 lbs)

The Low-rocker and substantial volume will help you to catch more waves, and get into those waves earlier. Pintail and slight vee (bottom contour) help it turn with ease, even from the middle of the board.

Wonderful board, my new gonto

The almond 8 exceeded my expectations. Rides very well, just as good as any hard board. My only qualm is that the deck pad is split in two which likely allows it to cover the entire area. This part is fine it only drives me crazy that the fish on the print are split and not lined up properly making for some odd looking creatures right where I look down while waiting for waves. Again only an issue if you’re crazy and ocd like me.

One board quiver

I bought this for my wife but now it’s the only board I use. It’s so much fun and easy to use. It doesn’t matter if it’s one foot or one foot overhead- this thing is great. The best part is that you don’t have to be precious with it, which means you can get to those secret spots without having to worry about dinging your board. Worth every penny.

A Joy

The R-Series Joy is awesome! I have a ton of fun with it, and surfing around a bunch of lava all the time, I’m not too concerned with dinging my board just getting in and out of the surf.
