During a couple of trips to So Cal from Australia over the last few years I’d always check out local surfboard brands... and when I started looking into Almond a bit more I really got inspired by the story and the products, and the overall cool aesthetic of the brand.
So when it came time to find a new board mid last year I looked up and down the Queensland and New South Wales coast in every surf shop, trying to get inspired for something new and a bit different. That’s when I reached out to Almond to see what the chances were of choosing an Almond and shipping it down under.
I did my reasearch, got in touch with the guys, picked an avocado green 9’4 Sano Special, and had it sent over. The first thing I noticed is the board is heavy, but heavy in a really good quality way. It’s perfect for the points and fast enough for the beach breaks to now be the only board I ride in all conditions.
Thanks Jeffery and Dave, can’t wait to get my next Almond.
