Almond is a collaborative effort of friends who enjoy making things the old fashioned way. Every surfboard is hand shaped. So are the custom, hand-foiled wooden ﬁns they glass onto nearly every board they build. They make their trunks, tees, and an assortment of other products, in California. This is the place they love, so they ﬁgure they should make the stuff they love here too. You can visit them at 367 Old Newport Blvd. Newport Beach, California, and see what they’ve been up to lately.
