What is the secret to making Almond surfboards paddle faster?

We realized years ago that most people’s surfing struggles began with catching waves late. You need more time to draw your line and get up if you see the wave too late.

It is the same for longboarders and shortboarders alike.

You don’t really need that much nose rocker if you want to avoid pearling. Instead, choose a board with better glide and that catches the waves earlier.

In the past 15 years, we have been building custom surfboards with a focus on glide, paddling speeds, and high wave counts.

We want you to be confident that when the wave you have been looking forward to arrives, you will get a free ride down the beach.


The low-level, gradual entry rocker will allow your board to glide across the water’s surface with minimal resistance. The tail rocker allows the board to match the speed and direction of the waves.

Blended Nose concave

Our Noseriders & Longboards all feature a blended concave nose that provides lift when noseriding without slowing down the board during paddling or surfing.

Generous Volume

The volume is a measurement that receives a lot press. Volume is a way to quantify “how much of the board is there?” Comparing two boards of distinctly different shapes can be aided by volume. The placement of the volume is what makes a surfboard great or bad.

While paddling to catch that wave, we ensure you have a lot of volume in your chest. We also carefully tune each board’s rails and tails to maximize enjoyment.

The effort

effort is a crucial part of the equation.

You can conserve energy by paddling out at the right time. This will allow you to have enough gas in your tank when it counts. Focus on efficient, powerful strokes. Also, get in the waves at least 2-3 strokes before they arrive. Your surfing will be dramatically improved.
