Ode o Almond Surfboards
Almond Surfboard in Newport Beach, California is pumping out some beautiful boards.
Almond is a collaborative effort of friends who enjoy making things the old fashioned way.
Each surfboard is hand shaped, start-to-finish.
So are the custom, hand-foiled wooden ﬁns they glass onto nearly every board they build.
Griffin Neumann-Kyle is the master shaper.
You’ll typically find griffin in his shaping bay 7 days a week, with regular afternoon breaks for surfing, orange chicken and electric guitar.
He’s a guy who knows what he loves, and he sticks to it.
Go check them at 2429 West Coast Hwy #101 Newport Beach, CA 92663.
Double stringer beauty with full lines and rightly sized keels.
A quad to make your mouth water.
