R-Series 5'4 MENU | SURFRIDER

91 reviews   |  

The R-Series 5'4 Secret Menu packs a lot of volume, so it can be ridden very short. The wide tail is fantastic for speed-generating, in all types of playful surf.

We're proud to collaborate with our friends at the Surfrider Foundation and artist Ty Williams to create a curated collection of surfboards, apparel and accessories.

Every purchase of the new Almond x Surfrider collection directly supports Surfrider's mission to protect our ocean, waves, and beaches.

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 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.

Secret Menu Review

This board paddles great-it honestly felt like I was paddling a board 6 inches longer. In fact, my friend has a "mini tanker" shape from HIC that felt very similar, and is 6 feet in length. Durable board. Will be great for the kids come summer time. Handles steeper drops better than I thought it would given the shape. The rails are really full-takes quite a bit to turn this, and most of the pressure to do so must be behind the back fins ( I thought anyway...someone better may disagree). In other words, don't expect the same performance you'll get out of your PU/PE board but you can have fun on it for sure.

R-series

Overall this is a great board! I’ve had it for about a year now and I’ve started to notice a couple things. The part where the foam splits on the top has started to peel off. It was an easy fix with some super glue but still shouldn’t happen. Also some minor things with the place where you put the fins but didn’t effect the way I ride.

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.
