R-Series 5'4 Menu | Black

Rugged, Recyclable, and Ready-to-Rip

At 5’4 long and 36L, the R-Series Secret Menu is designed for the optimal blend of paddle-ability and rip-ability. 

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 R-Series construction is designed with a deep awareness of the role we play in the bigger picture. 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.

I’m in!

Loved my new Shaka board! Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical at first but after my second wave the board is sooooo fun!! Really loose and skaty! It’s almost like you are ridding one of those Carver Lost skateboards! Yewww!!!!

It can float me...

I am 6%E2%80%992%E2%80%9D and 245lbs. This board floats and paddles like a champ. I%E2%80%99ve been surfing 2-3%E2%80%9D RJs and it has no trouble getting me into waves and down the line. I have been surfing almond boards for 10+ year and I can%E2%80%99t say enough about how fun this board has been! %0D%0A%0D%0AGreat for those days when you have to go straight to work and not worry about leaving your board in the truck all day. %0D%0A%0D%0AThanks Guys!!

Fantastic Maneuverability

We own all three R-Series boards.I last claimed the Plez Phez to be my favorite board, but this one takes the cake. I'll ride it in any conditions and it can handle them all. It's extremely maneuverable across the face and the rail engages really well! I usually like to sit far inside and catch waves last second; the board handles each take off with extreme ease. The few times I've paddled from the outside it gets in with no problem. This board is so fun and my new go to! Don't second guess on this and buy it! 5'11" 155 lb

Cool board but came damaged

As many others have said, this is a great option for a fun soft board. However, Almond doesn't package these to protect them well. Nose & tail had some wrapped protection, but the only thing between the rest of the board and the outside world is the cardboard box. My board's box had an open hole on one side, and there was a gash in the foam of the board right there. For any purchase of this amount, you should expect that the shipper protects your purchase at least a little. Pretty disappointed by that.

Almond Surfboards

Hi Shiva, did we get a replacement arranged? As far as the packaging goes, we have experimented with several strategies over the last several years, and the unfortunate reality is sharp punctures to the exterior of the box are very difficult to protect against with cardboard and bubble wrap. I am very sorry about the damage and we will remedy it for you.
