Located on Newport Beach south of Los Angeles on the sun-soaked California coast, Almond Surfboards & Designs is one of the premier destinations for SoCal surf style as it offers everything from graphic tees, fleece, and caps to wetsuits and more. However, at the backbone of the brand remains its penchant for handcrafted surfboards with a seemingly endless array of shapes and sizes available via the brand’s web store. In this new video, Almond presents a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of its Lumberjack – a traditional ’60s-style longboard with a square tail and pivot fin – from start to finish. Set to an appropriately laid-back tune by The Red Fox Tails, the lengthy piece follows the board from its initial shaping to painting, the application of its fin, and all the way to a glossy finish. Custom editions of the American-made Lumberjack are available to purchase online.
