Second Chance

I am recanting my initial unfavorable review of the 8.0 R-series Joy. I believe in second chances and was not stoked at first. After a gnarly rash and a failed leash plug i may have been a little harsh on the review. Picked up a long sleeve rash guard and put in a $10 leash plug. I didn't have any more issues and actually really liked the ride! Awesome in crowds. Rides over other boards with minimal damage and zero worry of dings. Also works great for dogs with the soft top! Be wary of claw marks though!

The Black Superball of soft surfboards

Is this board worth it’s expensive price tag. Compared to the much cheaper Costco Wavestorm. I think so. I have now ridden this board 3 times. Today in 2 ft peaky Oxnard peaks.Last time on a 5ft death drop at the north end Pacifica. The board has two differences 1st this board has a narrow outline with a pin tail and a big fin. This board seems to me to hold in much better on late drops. Mostly I find myself taking off sideways like a normal board. Mostly its the control you gain compared to a wavestorm which I feel don’t really hold in to steep drops too well. I feel I gained a control on a soft surfboard something a I think out surfs the much less expensive mass produced wavestorm.

Diamond head cliffs

Funny story I surfed diamond head cliffs yesterday no leash as usual, and my board went in without me over the shallow inside reef. After swimming for about 20 min lol I yelled uncle to a bystanderd, he said you okay, and I said yeah but I lost my board. He said I got it, no need he said I got it! After floating his another 5 min he returned with the precious cargo, and says wow it’s not even damaged.

R series JOY 8'0"

best soft top surfboard I've every owned... board is very sturdy, but still has flex... it handles steep drops and holds the wall well... would definitely recommend to a friend... definitely going to get a rash with no top, but overall the board works really good... jeffery at almond was awesome in getting all the details and shipping for out of state... thanks almond for a killer sustainable product... ALOHA!

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.
