Almond Surfboards. An exquisite selection of Minis and Newport's new shop on PCH.

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.
