Pleasant Pheasant

12 reviews   |  

The Pleasant Pheasant is ideally suited for surfers who want the added foam of a midlength, but still want the ability to explore the face of the wave. 

The "Plez Phez" is a progressive midlength, that features a slightly narrower outline, a round tail, and small side-bites—all of which equates to more power and rail-to-rail control.

Found my new daily driver

So, I've been a fan of Almond for a while. I like their whole approach to surfing (Two feet and firing, early and often, etc.). Their boards are also some of the best looking around (almost too pretty to risk it getting dinged by the nearest kook). I grabbed one of the R-series Secret Menu boards a while back and every time I take it out I get complements but I kept hearing from people how much they love their Pleasant Pheasant. When I started thinking of my next board, I was considering one of their long boards because I already have a good 7'2" fun board that I enjoy riding BUT when I saw the beautiful 6'6" Olive green Plez-Phez that they had at the shop I had a change of heart. I'm glad I went with the Plez-Phez! I took it out for the first time today and probably had one of my best session ever! I caught twice as many waves in about half the time. It "feels" like short board but still has plenty of paddle-abilty. I'm looking forward to many more sessions and exploring all of its versatility.

Best board I own

My 6'8" pleasant pheasant is super versatile, I use it in 80% of the waves I surf. I would definitely get another Almond.

Just about everything I need--Awesome

The Phez is a flyer. The gas pedal on this sled is on the front third of the board - step up there and she takes off… I’m on a 6’6” and running a 6.5” fin with 3” side bites (glassed on wood ones), and get all the maneuverability that I need, even in overhead surf. And I can catch just about every wave that I want. Pump down the line from the middle of the board, widen the stance to put her on rail and carve around, or slide the back foot back and snap off the lip. Just about everything I need. Awesome.

I have a new girlfriend

All kidding aside, I bought an Rseries Plez Phez earlier in the year. I loved it so much I wanted a fiberglass version. This is my board for many years to come! Thanks Team!

Board is great. Paddles like my long board and turns like a short board.
