Sign Painting

Theo helped me paint a new sign for the side of the shop.

This is for sure my favorite photo of Theo. Taken by none other than a photographer from Muchos thanks amigos.

Worm's 9'2 Lumberjack

Here's a shot of worm with her new board.

Erin "Worm" Ashley

Wasn't Dennis Rodman's nickname the Worm as well???

In any case, here's a photo of worm on her brand new 9'2 Lumberjack at Malibu, getting ready for the Call to the Wall tomorrow.

Kobe Bryant

What better way to celebrate a 4th NBA title than throwing a shaka to your fans?

Ahoy Board Bags

Darren, over at Ahoy sent me over a rad custom board bag for my 9'7 that I'm way stoked on.

Take a look at the cool stuff he's been doing lately.

Cam Oden via Greg Benoit

I've been getting quite a few emails in response to some photos I posted recently by Cameron Oden.  Here is a glimpse of the mystery man behind the lens, that Greg Benoit captured at Sano on Friday.

Expect to see a lot more from Cam in the future.

The Most Interesting Man in the World

The Most Interesting Man in the World might enjoy Dos Equis Beer, but he's not a middle aged Spanish man.

I introduce to you our submission for the MIMITW 2009 award.... my friend, TJ Saeman.

The Living Curl

My friend, Jason, gave me a copy of Jamie Budge's The Living Curl, and I absolutely loved it.  Some really good early 60's footage.  If we ever get a TV at the shop, we'll be playing it on the regular.  For now, enjoy the trailer.

Matunas Organic Surf Wax

Almond is now carrying Matunas Organic Surf Wax, and we're super pumped on the stuff.

All the ingredients are grown on the Matoon family's farm in Santa Cruz and it smells like heaven.  Not to mention it works way better than you're imagining in your head.  Definitely a worthy pick. And definitely endorsed by all of us over here at Almond.

Come by and take a look.

Break the June Gloom

...with a little June Joy.

If you bring in an Almond Joy candy bar to the shop this month, we'll give you 25% off the "Almond Joy" t-shirt.  We're just trying to do our part to spread a little joy, and eat some candy.
