Almond Shop // 3-Year Anniversary

This week marks the 3-year anniversary of our home base here on Old Newport Blvd. These last few years have flown by… yet I can hardly remember life before the “Almond Shop”. We’re so thankful for all of the support, encouragement and loyalty. Without it we’d just have a weird room with surfboards in it.. and we probably would have given up long ago. The shop has been, and continues to be, a great venue for us to display the wares of our efforts and to have a dialogue with anyone who finds their way to our front-door. We’ve been blessed by a tremendous number of people, but I specifically want to thank the guys for sticking with it through the highs and lows and not always vanishing into thin air when the waves get good. So, year 4 is dedicated to Jeffrey, Taylor, Cameron, Griffin and Gully. Thanks, Dave
