R-Series 6'4 Plez Phez | SURFRIDER

63 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.

We're proud to collaborate with our friends at the Surfrider Foundation and artist Ty Williams to create a curated collection of surfboards, apparel and accessories.

Every purchase of the new Almond x Surfrider collection directly supports Surfrider's mission to protect our ocean, waves, and beaches.

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

What is R-Series?
R-Series is our rugged foamie line of boards—the same great shapes we have been building for over a decade, now in a recyclable foamie construction.  This is not a "soft top" it's something new altogether.

The R-Series construction is designed with a deep awareness of the role we play in the bigger picture. The materials used in the R-Series surfboards can—and will be—recycled at the end of the board’s life, through our Recycling Loyalty Program. Please refer to our limited warranty for any questions regarding the R-Series surfboard.

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!

I had an amazing experience with Almond with the purchase of this board. They were so helpful and responsive with all of my questions along the way, and I really appreciated their first responder discount! The board is so fun to ride. I definitely recommend!
