86 reviews   |  


Our Holiday shipping window ends Dec 10, so please consider doing your shopping a bit earlier this year.

"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. 

This is a special artist collaboration with our amigo Kevin Butler, of Rad Cars with Rad Surfboards.

I bought my wife one over the summer, and after riding hers once, I had to get myself one! Love this board!

Shaka brah

Fun, and great for crowded weekend lineups, catches everything resembling a wave. Love it almost as much as my Plez Phez. Loved the deck and painted the fin. Shaka sharks!

Awesome board, cheap fin

Love the board, and the customer service was excellent. Only issue was the fin snapped off at the base first session. To be honest it barely touched the sand, and I wasn’t even standing on the board. Other than that love everything about it.

Surfers, shapers, artists, AND philanthropists

The guys at Almond are true purveyors of aloha. They gave away surfboards to people in need of moral, emotional, and mental boost. Of course being such philanthropists, they would never advertise or brag about it. Y'all need to see what they're doing on every level.
