I tried to love this board

Honest review here, the 8,0 was awesome at picking up waves and paddles well enough....slow in the face when needing speed a glass board would have but if you really pump it will generate speed. Loved the no wax deck and the durability especially when shifting in crowded. Nothing worse than having your new sweet 1500$+ board ping ponging off the packed line up. So on the the negatives. Preface this bay saying I live in Costa Rica. So no Rubber! Day 1 my nipples were bleeding from the non skid deck, days 2 to 3 developed a rash on my for arms from the rails. Women can forget about this board because of inner thigh rash. Day 4 my leash tie tore out of the top of the plug. Recommendations for you guys is to change the texture of the bottom and rails for better glide and the rash issue, and install a more tried and tested leash plug. I guess I need to buy a full rash guard to protect against the rash and drill a hole in the fin for the leash now. Sorry guys but I have to be honest no way I would buy another.

Very fun, solid all-around board

I bought my 8 ' Joy R-series surfboard about a month-and-a-half ago and I'm really digging it. Great for catching waves early and really fast cruising down the line . Compared to similar 8' Wavestorm / Stormblade soft-tops, it seems to float a tad lower in the water when paddling as it is quite a bit heavier ( it's heavy) , however, it still paddles quite well and the firmer rails make it feel a bit more like riding a conventional fiberglass board than your typical foamie. Single fin makes for really quick down the line speed and very smooth turns off the bottom if you know what you're doing. It's also worth mentioning that it's a very unique, cool-looking board that will have people asking about it. Definitely recommend as an addition to your quiver for smaller days or as your go-to all around fun board for everyday surf.

8’0 Joy is Joy

Was a little nervous getting a foamie but shocked how well it works. Not to mention it looks incredible. You can tell there has been some serious R&D put into this thing. From the template to the deck everything was very calculated and it shows.

Easy paddler and great performance!

In super early and so responsive down the line! I haven’t surfed any other board since I got this thing. A soft top that’s so not a soft top......stoked over here on the East coast

Joy 8' incredible

This new joy 8' soft top is a blast. This board will float a real big guy. But it's not a cork. Very responsive in very fast for being a soft top.Another big pluses this board is very hard to damage. Has just the right amount flex. So if you find someone that sells them, Buy it!! You won't be sorry.. I weigh 230 lb and it floats me great. Good job Almond surfboards.
