This Extremely Limited-Edition Surfboard Collab Features Vintage Art And It Doesn’t Need Any Wax!

R Series Almond x Huckberry Surfboards Yusuke Hanai

Huckberry


Almond Surfboards have been hand-shaping custom boards in Costa Mesa, California for years. Their original mission was to shape California originals that ‘would be lasting in quality and function’ and they’ve been perfecting that process ever since and hand-shaping surfboards that can be passed down as heirlooms to the next generation. They’ve now teamed up with Japanese surfer/artist Yusuke Hanai for a retro-inspired Huckberry exclusive and released three different boards, each of which is limited to only 100 boards hand-shaped which means they’ll be gone before the holidays.

The three limited-edition boards include the R-Series 5’4″ ($399), R-Series 6’4″ ($529), and the R-Series 8’0″ ($550). The R-Series surfboards offer ‘no fiberglass, no wax, and no compromise in performance’ and they are 100% recyclable thanks to ‘Almond’s groundbreaking Recycling Loyalty Program and make no trade offs in their ability to rip’. I think what stands out the most about these surfboards beyond the craftsmanship and art is that you can literally rip on them and then hang them up in your man cave on the wall and they’ll look awesome.
