7s Superfish


The 7S Superfish. boasts an interesting step-deck design that I noticed right away. It gives the girth needed to float you into massive amounts of waves while giving the feel of a thinner railed board, so you can more effectively put the board on edge as you progress in your surfing performance.

The 7S Superfish. is very fast and very loose. There is no argument there at all. It projected strong off the bottom, which is where some fish boards (boards that are wide and thick and generally have a split “swallow” tail) falter. In addition, I found the 7S Superfish. performed very similarly to a traditional surfboard. It turned quickly off the top and transitioned smoothly from top to bottom along the wave face.
The 7S Superfish. is designed with a flat bottom and full-length concave leading to a double-concave near the tail.

The flat bottom requires less speed and power to keep the board level and generates less friction on the water’s surface. Flat bottoms are great for small waves but don’t work well in more hollow waves that require your board have more curve to fit into the more extreme curve of the wave. The board’s concave is where the board’s bottom is curved in to provide a subtle channel for the water to flow, theoretically providing more projection down the wave and out of turns.

The7S Superfish. comes in lengths from 5’ 8” to 6’ 3”, all with a double-bump swallow tail that works in conjunction with the aforementioned bottom design. The swallowtail breaks up the water that has been channeled by the concaved bottom, thus loosening up the boards turning capability.

All this board design explanation really doesn’t matter when you are surfing. What matters is this. The 7S Superfish. is a great board for any level rider, but I believe would greatly help newer surfers who may have trouble catching waves or turning their big beginner boards. This board is loose and fast, and its innovative step-deck design gives it the feel of a thinner board while still being maneuverable in small, crappy surf.
