The Chef's Favorite Dish to Cook
Pay attention when a chef says something like "this is my favorite meal to prepare."
Likewise, pay attention when a shaper says "this is my favorite surfboard to shape."
We actually learned something new about our own Griffin Neumann-Kyle last week. We asked customers to send in their burning surfboard questions for a long-form Q&A video, which you can watch here:
One of the questions submitted was "This one is for Griffin... what is your favorite surfboard to shape?"
Horrified, I realized that after 14 years of working together, I didn't even know the answer to this one. I was as eager as the author of the question to find out.
Turns out, Griffin's favorite surfboard to shape is the Pleasant Pheasant.
I wasn't particularly shocked by this revelation, it's a board that everyone around here thoroughly enjoys riding, it is consistently among the most popular models for our customers, and it blends together a lot of the best parts of longer boards and smaller boards.
I have stated at various times in the past that it would be my one-board-quiver, if I had to narrow it down to only a single board.
If you are looking for a versatile mid-sized board, take a very close look at the Pleasant Pheasant. After all, when the shaper says it's his favorite board to shape... you've got to pay attention.
