American Craftsmen – Del Mar


 

The Del Mar film features Dave Allee of Almond Surfboards and Designs. Building a pitch-perfect blend of modern California surfing style and historic American craft, the film follows Dave through the rigorous process of handshaping and finishing one of Almonds signature longboards. Almond emphasis on handshaping rather than mass production parallels LASCO’s commitment to the power of small but mighty American manufacturers.
