R-Series 6'4 Plez Phez | SAGE

65 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.  It's one of our most beloved models, and perfect fit to build in the R-Series construction.

In terms of length and volume, the 6'4 Pleasant Pheasant (Plez Phez for short) splits the difference between the 5'4 MENU and the 8'0 JOY

The latest addition to the R-Series line features a SINGLE FIN BOX and Futures side-bite boxes.

Best Board Ever!

I’m a beginner and started off with the 5’4 R-Series before they had the 6’4. I was able to learn to surf on the 5’4 but catching smaller waves was more difficult. After getting the 6’4 I can now catch everything, big or small! I love it!

Plez Indeed!

Almond Guys, Thank you so much for such a plezant purchase experience recently, helping me with getting the Surfrider Plez Phez shipped to Oahu so quickly. GREAT customer service. Absolutely LOVE the board. Still dialing in my take-off timing, but when I'm up I am on it fast and moving on that face... It's gonna be my best friend this summer. Thank you again!

Shipping damage/quality control issues, but Almond made it right and the board is rad

No doubt this is a really unique board and I find the combination of size + float to be really fun in FL surf the couple times I've been out. With just a single fin setup, I could catch maybe 80-90% as many waves as my 7'6" glass fun shape on small waves and definitely move around the face better. Seems a little slower with the bite fins but would come in handy on bigger waves. Only reason for the ding is the first board I received was damaged from a box drop on nose and I'm really surprised the board wasn't packaged better to prevent (buddy had same thing happen). Almond did ship me a new board though and return shipping label. Unfortunately next board arrived with center fin box too narrow for washer. Again Almond shipped a smaller washer that works. All in all happy, just wish it had been smoother.

It’s good!

I'm a Japanese surfer. This board is floating and the design is also the best.

I love this board so much. I felt like I was confident enough with my Wavestorm and I had no clue what to get next. A few guys were riding Almonds at Bolsa Chica and they convinced me the Plez Phez was the perfect board for me. I got out of the water and checked my phone and my tax return literally got wired to my bank while I was in the water sooooo I was like this is a no brainer lol. I drove over to Almond and the guys at the store were super friendly and helpful and answered all my questions. They set up my fins for me and the whole experience was top notch. The next day on my first paddle out I was amazed at the difference between this board and the wave storm. Night and day. A bunch of guys on the line were all complimenting the board and saying they love Almonds. I knew I picked the right board. I’ve been surfing with it for the past couple weeks and it’s so much fun. Just enough volume for where I’m at skill level wise. Highly recommend this board. Thanks to everyone at Almond!
