Meet the R-Series
It's Not A Soft Top
It’s the rugged, recyclable, USA-made,
R-Series from Almond Surfboards.
Fiberglass-free versions of your favorite Almond Surfboard models:
the 5’4 Secret Menu,
the 6’4 Pleasant Pheasant,
the 8’0 Joy (pictured here),
the 9’2 Surf Thump.
All the attention to detail that you’d expect from an Almond—in an easy to use, easy to love construction.
Meet the R-Series Line:
The 5’4" Secret Menu is designed for the optimal blend of paddle-ability and rip-ability.
The 6'4" Pleasant Pheasant is ideally suited for surfers who want the added foam of a mid-length, and want the ability to explore the face of the wave.
The 8'0" Joy is designed to be the go-to surfboard for all ages and stages.
The 9'2" Surf Thump is the versatile noserider you've been asking for
What Makes An R-Series?
The R-Series surfboards are made of a rugged foam, a no-wax deck, and strengthened by precision-foiled wood stringers. Real fin boxes mean you can swap your fins out with any Futures or universal center box fin.
The rugged foam of the R-Series line is closed-cell, meaning it won't take on water. Whereas a traditionally constructed soft top gets water-logged, the R-Series will keep on going, even after years of bumps and bruises. There is no "skin" on an R-Series board, that material you see
All R-Series surfboards can—and will—be recycled at the end of their useful life. Because of our relationship with our manufacturing partners, the infrastructure to receive and process R-Series for recycling is already in place—and happening currently. In exchange for you getting your heavily used R-Series board back to us, we will give you a discount on a brand new one.
The third "R" in R-Series... Ready-to-Rip. All R-Series surfboards are ready-to-rip—right out of the box! No need to even wax it. The no-slip grip means you'll never need to bum a bar of wax off a stranger in the parking lot, but you may prefer to surf with a wetsuit top or surf tee.
Like all the surfboards we build, the R-Series boards are made right here in the USA.
