Almond Fine Surfing Trunks

Available at the shop and online.

Hand-sewn in Orange County, California.

We made a few slight changes to the fit, to make them even more ideal for surfing. And they're 3/4" longer this time around...

New Log Rhythm Fin

Introducing: the new Log Rhythm fin template.

We've always put Huck fins on the Log Rhythms, but after years of watching King Rat surfing, we got inspired to do something with a touch more rake, and the same surface area. We think it's a good compliment to the Huck fin; especially for surfers who want to flow through turns a bit more. Just under 10" tall.

Pete Tresselt | Paddle Board

My Grandpa's friend (my friend also) Pete Tresselt is restoring an old paddle board. Raddest.

My grandpa is an incredible metal/wood/anything worker, and custom made the brass drain plug for Pete's board!

This is the next thing I want to build and hang on my wall.

The Hullee | Simon Perini

All glassed up, and ready to go.

Simon, with the backyard reshape hull I did with him, during my stay in Thirroul.

Hope it works, Simon! I already know what we're going to make next year. You're going to need to find a bigger old mal to strip the glass off, for the next one...

Jeffrey Beach Kid

My brother, Jeffrey Allee, is now officially the Almond shop manager. He'll be running the show 10-4 weekdays. I'll be at the shop 4-6 weekdays and all day Saturday. He's been doing a great job running the shop recently, and this frees me up to do more things we want to do with Almond, moving forward.
So stop by and visit Jeff, and bring him a Dr. Pepper or something.
