Believed to be 7S's best Super Fish yet, the Super Fish 4 IM Surfboard is an amalgamation of the Superfish 3 shape, with some old design features from the past, yet still offers the perfect balance of stability and turning response. Created with an exciting new material, IM (Innegra Matrix), this board's construction helps to control the torsional flex with woven fiberglass, while the carbon strands control the longitudinal flex, resulting in a poppy and lively feel from the EPS core, but with the underlying feeling of control and dampening that’s closer to a traditional PU board. Less chatter and more dampening means a smoother feel through turns.
Parallel rails and extra width through the nose creates a really stable platform and helps you generate speed. A tapered tail outline maintains nimble maneuverability, and the flyer creates a release point when turnings. The swallow tail adds bite on the face of the wave, especially when glassy conditions prevail. Single-to-double concave creates tons of speed down the line, and provides sensitivity off the tail when transitioning from rail to rail. The balanced rocker has just enough lift in the nose to prevent nose dives on steeper waves, and moderate curve off the tail keeps the board responsive when driving off your back foot. Plenty of volume in the chest provides paddle power so you can get into waves early, and full rails keep the board sitting high in the water.

- Q & A
7s SuperFish 3
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I will always try to support local shapers but found myself making a decision far from the shapers I would have asked for help. I did some research through a multitude of on-line sites and read every review about the pros and cons of 7s boards. You'll never find consensus. I'm a 55yr old guy who hits the East Coast twice a year. I looked for a shape that could cater to my 70-80s shortboard memories and ability and yet manage the reality that I'm slower and less physically conditioned then I was in my 20s. So looking for lightweight performance yet with enough volume for catching waves was my priority. I ended up with a 7' and 8' SuperFish 3 . This range of size and volume will work with me in cold to warm water as well as knee to over-head conditions. I've added oversized traction decks on both and have FCS Tri fins on each. Both boards are outstanding and allow me as much fun my body and enthusiasm can take. I could bore you with all the details but will keep it simple by saying they're fantastic boards. Paddling, bottom turns, rebounds, cutbacks, re-entries or just holding the line....its all good. I am excite for making such a great choice and really psyched I have a range of boards for most conditions. I look forward to every moment in the lineup and feel confident that my equipment works as I hoped. Good luck with your board selection. I think you'll be wise to consider a SuperFish. Can't wait to paddle out again. BackCountry was outstanding with each purchase and hope to do business with them again.
