This endeavor is dedicated to the memory of Joel Nixon, a good friend to many, myself included. Joel was the biggest supporter of the white wave traction idea. Without his enthusiasm and encouraging words this thing wouldn't have gotten off of the ground. Joel spent more days on his board than anyone else I know. There was no such thing as bad conditions. If it involved sliding on snow, it was a good day. Joel recognized that life was bigger than himself and snowboarding. Educated and well read, Joel was aware of global issues and the plight of people less fortunate than us. Rather than turning a blind eye, he contributed to various aid and humanitarian programs. In honor of Joel's selfless nature and desire for change Almond mfg. will be donating 2 percent of all sales to Amnesty International and the Red Cross. 2 pecent for the people.

I miss you Joel there are a lot of us who wish you were still here.




Joel Thomas Nixon October 15 1979 - August 30 2009





The story so far....

Almond Manufacturing is based between the Selkirk and Monashee mountains in Revelstoke BC. The company is rider owned, operated, and funded by a blue collar day job. At the point I am a home-based one man band operation. Design, media, and most of the manufacturing processes are done in house (literally). Hopefully the team will grow in the future.

Canadian Made.

In a time of offshore sourcing I am proud to be a made in Canada product. Product quality and longevity are top priority. I manufacture as much as I can in Revelstoke which is a small community. The manufacturing that cannot be done in house is done no farther away than the confines of the province. All parts and pieces are sourced from local and domestic vendors.

My relationship with customers is a big deal to me. I'm keen to hear feedback and ideas to help improve products and customer service. This is all new terrain for me, thanks for the support.
