R-Series 6'4 Plez Phez | SHAKA

53 reviews   |  

We are very excited to share the newest addition to the R-Series line—the 6'4 Pleasant Pheasant, brand new for Summer 2020!

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. 

This one is illustrated by our RAD amigo, Kevin Butler, of Rad Cars with Rad Surfboards on Them

Why 5 Stars for all the reviews?

I will tell you why. I am not affiliated with Almond or know anyone from the ownership/staff so I am speaking as a true unbiased consumer. I got my 6-4 Plez Phez R-Series foam construction Surfboard about 6 months ago. I started surfing about a year and half ago at the age of 52 and like most people starting out it was on a standard 8ft wavestorm which was great safe board to start. Once I got the comfortable with the basic of surfing, I was looking on how to transition down to a shorter board with my end goal being able to surf head high waves in the Ventura County area where I live. So I started to shop around and all the local shops tried to get me down to a Poly or Epoxy board. I was a little hesitant to go with Poly/Epoxy as my next board since I was not user friendly with my wavestorm. So I did some internet searches and came across the foam R Series from Almond. So I took the plunge and got the Plez Phez R-Series and have not been disappointed. At the start, it took a while to get use to the shorter board with less volume but after several sessions I was catching lots of waves and having a lot of fun exploring different parts of the waves. The board is also super easy to paddle for a short board. Finally, the customer service I received from Almond was second to none. Very professional staff and management, Simply a great all around board especially for someone looking to downsize from a larger board.

Every day fun board

Take off early on anything. Great board for a guaranteed good time in most conditions.

Made for FUN

This is my second R-series with owning the Joy first. Surfing New England waves, and both boards rip. The joy is improving my surfing, and helping me get away from more volume of my longboard or Joy. This board catches waves with east, moves like a skateboard, and never need to worry about wax. A new go to on most days.
