Product Description

Introducing the new Superfish 3 (SF3) by 7S. This highly functional board has been completely overhauled to make it faster, more forgiving and ultra responsive.

While different from its predecessors in design, the new SF3 still catches waves like a dream and offers the perfect balance of stability, speed and performance so you can get the most out of your surfing.

OUTLINE: Parallel rails and extra width through the nose provides a really stable platform to work from and generate speed. The tail outline tapers to maintain overall manoeuvrability, and the flyer creates a release point when performing turns. The swallow tail also adds bite especially in smoother conditions.

CONTOURS: Lively single-to-double concave provides great down-the-line speed, and sensitivity off the tail when transitioning from rail-to-rail.

ROCKER: Well balanced, with just enough flip in the entry to prevent nose-diving in steeper waves. Moderate curve out the tail keeps the board responsive when driving off your back foot.

FOIL: Plenty of volume under the chest extends to the nose and tail providing paddle power so you can get into waves early. Full rails keep the board sitting nice and high in the water.

FINS: The Superfish 3 DOES NOT come with fins but we suggest the FCSII Performer M thruster set.

This versatile, high volume fish will allow you to really maximise your time in the water and progress steadily to the next level of performance.


NOTE: rider weight is based on board volume and novice-to-intermediate rider skill level.

Carbon Vector Technology

Technical Information

Construction Carbon Vector

Carbon Vector (CV) construction delivers unmatched performance by harnessing the flex characteristics of epoxy and the strength of carbon. CV combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a distinctive carbon fiber webbing, (positioned on the bottom and around the rails).
The carbon fiber webbing serves to evenly distribute tension across the entire surface area of the board to produce a lively, yet controlled flex pattern with remarkable memory recall. The biaxial fiberglass on the deck serves to add strength and also help prevent delaminating. CV boards feel fast, light and highly responsive in all conditions.
Created by GSI to compliment a range of board models and designs, this construction has proven to have superior flex properties over our other board technologies by up to 20%.

    Short session got dark waves shoulder head high clean offshore but board seems to work well,easy to get in to wave and great rocker on board compared to 7s super epoxy.much lighter as well.looking forward to great winter on board in puerto Rico.4.5 stars so far.

    Superfish allowed me to step down to 31lL easy from 34L And up,.. It’s floats me and paddle like I haven’t transitioned at all.. My surfing has improved in a matter of months…

    Steve June 23, 2016

    I’m a flatlander alpine skier turned expert telemark skier. One of my tele dvds had a segment on surfing that dubbed tele skiing “the longboarding of the winter world.” I’d always loved surfing but never had a chance to try it. That dvd did it. I started surfing 3 years ago when we vacationed on LBI, with 9′ then 8′ foamies. Last year I started on an 8′ foamy & ended on an 8’6″ glass (rentals). Having decent success on the 2nd board, I wanted to buy my own glass board.

    At my level (what, ‘advanced’ beginner?), & now surfing Lake Mich when not in NJ, I needed 1 board that could do it all. Like having a ‘1 ski quiver’, I needed a ‘1 board quiver.’ To be my only board, it had to be long enough for me to catch smaller waves, but also able to carve more like a funboard. A lot of research & talking to my instructors led me to the SF3. Over the last year, it has allowed me to catch several waves in a few sessions on Lake Mich, & I just got back from 2 weeks on LBI again.

    At 8′, this board could not have been a better fit. I switched it to quad fin & it’s more stable & faster paddling & getting down the face – both of which help a lot at my level. It is forgiving yet carves (well enough for me). I’m 5’10”, 190 lbs, pretty ripped, & (but) almost 47. Last year, one of my sons (then 9) started on it in Lake Mich whitewash, & by the time we left LBI this year he was catching faces on his own on it.

    If you can have only 1 board, get this one in whichever length fits your level & size. I did notice the heel impressions far too early, but as others noted it’s a trade-off w/ being ultralight. That is my only ‘complaint’, & it’s not much of one. Love it!

    After having a total hip replacement and not surfing for over 18 Months I needed a board that was stable, easy to paddle yet still had some shortboard characteristics. At 90Kg and 44yrs I found the 6’6 Superfish 3 CV to be the perfect board. It catches waves with ease and allowed me to stumble to my feet but was forgiving enough not to catch rails, as my fitness returned I found the board was loose enough to allow reo s off the lip and full round house cutties. I have ridden the board in surf from 2ft to 6ft. I highly recommend the SF3 CV for anyone looking for a board that paddles like a mal but can be surfed like a shortboard(almost!).

    Angela Turney December 2, 2015

    Absolutely LOVE this board! It has allowed me to improve so much more than I expected and I’m now busting to get on out into the waves at every opportunity! Thanks GSI!!!

    Jonathan Cowart October 14, 2015

    My experience and review is very similar to the reviewer before me see: Gregory 10/07/15. Im 175 lbs 6ft and choose the 6’9 . I have had the board for 4 weeks and a nice swell came in to town here in San Diego this week.

    I have been having a blast on this board!!!. I am 37 years old and have been longboarding 8 and 9 ft boards only for the last 10 years now. I am starting to get in better shape and wanted to take my surfing to the next level. I miss the grom days when I could ride a shorty 5’10 board.

    This Superfish is a “three little bears” type of board for me, not to big not too small. It is however super super light with plenty of volume under the hips and chest but still “duck dive-able” , catches wave almost as easy as my longboard and really forgiving on the footing. This board really wants to stay under your feet. It’s fast and responsive and I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what it is capable of. This board seriously has me craving to be out in the water everyday . If you are on the BETTTER end intermediate or advanced I do recommend going for the short size because I’m now really glad I didn’t get the 7ft er.

    My only negatives are that there are heel indentions on it after only 4 weeks. I was hoping the board would take on more of an Epoxy dint free character but it is very much like your typically foamy in that way, mind you have been surfing the wheels of this thing in heavy surf for the last several days.

    I will also say that the blue and red is really more of a blue and pink, but I now own the pink with pride and this board makes me look so good out there I doubt that any one is going to give me trouble for it. If your sensitive to keeping a low style profile in the water then you may want to shy away from the colored options.

    This board will be my every day board for years to come and it’s the perfect tool to get me to the next level of short boarding.

    At this point I can say I would buy again from Global Industries for that next board because of my experience on this Superfish. Have fun hope this info helps.

    Okay, I’ve owned my 6’9″ 7s Superfish 3 for about 2 months, and fortunately we’ve had a good run of swell here in Central Florida for late Sept, early Oct 2015, so I had a great opportunity to ride this board in chest to 2 ft overhead swell on our typical beach break conditions here.

    Okay, first off let me say that I’m stepping down from 9ft performance longboard. I wanted a board that I could duck-dive to get me out to the line up on our bigger days, but would provide me with reasonable stability, and some extra buoyancy under the chest to give me a bit more float, and paddle power for my skill and age. A little more maneuverability over my 9’0″ longboard is a plus, but not something I was really demanding.

    I’m 182 lbs and 49 years old, and for my age I’m in good shape, and a decent intermediate surfer. Florida beach breaks on big days are extremely challenging to paddle into, since you have to take on the white water and breaking surf full on to get to the line up in most cases.

    Many times with the period at or near 10s, you take on several waves to get out. The 7S super fish 3 has been a very good board for me, I looked at volumes and went with something that’s near the top end of my duck-dive range. I read that the max board volume you can duck dive is about 4.0-4.5lbs of body weight per liter of volume of the surfboard (not sure how scientific this is, but it’s just a general guideline). The 6-9″ is 43.1L so with my body weight of 182lbs, I’m in this range of max board volume to duck dive.

    After adjusting to the smaller size board through some trial and error, I found it to be reasonably good at paddling, very manageable on steeper drop ins, good stability, and my rides have been great when the wave holds up nicely. I would personally drop back to my longboard for our more common knee to waist high surf here in Florida, but when we get chest to head high surf, this is great board offering just the right amount of speed, maneuverability, and plenty of fun factor when the waves are pumping.

    For 49 years old, I actually can’t believe how we’ll I’ve adapted to riding this board. Additionally, the board is super light, I’ve never had a board this light, so it gives you more buoyancy while keeping the board short. Another nice bonus, are the FCS keyless fins which don’t require grub (allen head) screws. This will be my go to board when I travel to California and Costa Rica.

    My only con related to the board are the pressure dings on the deck, I would probably prefer just a bit more glassing on the deck to make it a bit more stronger, but I also know that this board has been built to be light, so there’s a tradeoff. In general, I think the value (cost to fun factor) is really fantastic.

    I would recommend to others.

    BTW, I was also amazed at how quickly it shipped, and arrived at my home undamaged. Ordering online via the GSI website was a very good experience. Good luck with your next board purchase, and I hope you get some good waves soon….

    I held off writing a review until I had enough sessions to make an informed judgement. It’s a fantastic board (6’0″) that has helped me progress from novice to intermediate. The biggest difference from my last board (a much smaller fish) is that I get every wave that I am in position to catch. It’s very stable too. It catches small waves with ease and is easy to paddle. I recommend this board to anyone of any ability, but particularly to people who are transitioning from a mini mal or are looking for something to get into waves with ease. I did struggle a little bit with duck diving at first (I’m 56kg, 5’4″) so I must focus more on my leg drive. I also bought the board at a bargain price, with free delivery. No regrets at all and this will be my only board for the next year. I hope to acquire more skill and confidence to expand my quiver after 12 months.

    Have been board surfing about a year. Previously a kayak surfer. I am 57 years old and weigh 160 pounds. I’m 6 feet tall on a good day. First board was a 9′ Becker UFO, bombproof. First time we got these boards we took them out in windy slop. I got the 8′ and my wife got the 7.5′. Were able to get up on them right away. Able to take them out in some nicer conditions more recently and really enjoyed their manoeuvrability and ability to stay on the wave. I feel guilty because it seems I’ve forgotten about my Becker but I’ m really enjoying the new board.Arrived in perfect condition, snap in fins are nice. One negative is a few pressure dents, oh well. Definitely happy with this board.

    I’ve been surfing for 6 months on a 9’×23″×3 at a beach break and wanted a shorter board for bigger days. I’m 6′ and 103 kg’s. I took a chance and went for the 7’6″. I’ve only had the board out for one surf and it has plenty of volume and paddles well. I thought it would take me a while to get used to riding a shorter board, but pop ups were easy and the board is super stable to turn. I’ve only tried duck diving once before and I had no trouble doing it with this board. I am so happy with this board and would recommend it to anyone looking to step down from a long board.

    I am an intermediate surfer who was sizing down from my 9’2. I’m on the Outer
    Banks of NC, surfing sandbars. I needed a board to handle heavier days with
    steeper waves. I surfed a short board a kid, but was landlocked for most of my
    adult life with a surf trip or two a year. At age 40 decided to be a beach bum
    and move back to my childhood family beach house. I’m 180, 5’11, and in good
    phys paddling cond. I got the 6’6 SF and have had a few sesh’s now. Board
    floats me fine and catches waves surprisingly well (of course have to sit inside
    a touch from the longboarders). Great speed and easy maneuverability, if a bit
    tough to duck dive due to 39L of volume. I could have gone 6’3 but am glad with
    the float/wave catching of the 6’3. Couple of buds (who are much better than me
    and surf shorter boards regularly) were very complimentary of the board after
    riding a few waves. Great speed down the line, so much that I have to remember
    to fade back to the source as this board will quickly outrun the wave unless
    you’ve got really fast walls. We’ll see about durability once fall comes and we
    start getting hurricane swells.
    I did pull the wax off after these sessions and have a couple of heel/knee marks
    (no cracks, just slight pressure dings), but I have also duffed some takeoffs and
    fallen ON the board, so kinda user/learner issue. Rails and bottom of board are
    still perfect.
    Included fins are fine for me. I may try quad down the line, but as I don’t know
    better I’m happy with the thruster set up.
    All in all, I’m happy I made the leap to try a board with different tech/build
    than my longie. Custom longboard ‘future tech’ short board serves my quiver
    nicely for the waves here.

    Hello, I bought the 6.3 SF3 to leave early and not necessarily be obliged to take my longboard in a little small and soft conditions. I not disappointed, Take off and paddle is easy The board generate speed on the flat sections without necessarily needing the technique of a radical surfboard it really is a great board for small and medium terms Also this board has a good return in terms of flex that generates the speed right away. I love this board Alain 1,70m 70 kg expert level

    This board is magic, I have owned a number of different boards so far but now that I am a bit older (56) I have found that I need a more versatile board that is easier to paddle and easier to get onto the waves and this is it. I live on the Gold Coast where the waves can be absolutely brilliant but a lot of the time can be sloppy and messy.
    The S7 Super Fish 3 CV is just perfect for me in smaller surf and I’m just waiting to try it out in some larger clean waves. Easy to paddle, easy to get onto the waves and quick enough to really get some good turns on even small waves. No more paddling around and not catching any waves. I just wish I had this board years ago. Even if you are a brilliant surfer this is a must add board for your quiver to be able to make the most of all surf conditions.

    Amazing first Fish board. I started out renting long boards from 8’4″ to 7’9″, and eventually I could stand up and ride a 6’8″ for a few seconds. I decided to get the 6’3″ SF3 by 7S in Carbon Vector tech. It came 2 days later in perfect conditions with FCS2 screwless fins, and glides smoothly. It took me about 2-3 weeks to finally get used to it, so don’t feel bad if popping up on the fish is harder than on your standard longboard (pop up technique changes since you can’t use your feet anymore!). I couldn’t even stand on it the first time I took it out, but now I’m catching at least 10 waves every time I go out, which is good for low tide in small surf. I’m 5’11” and weight 148lb. I can’t feel happier about getting this new board as my first fish, as I begin my transition towards intermediate surf level. Ever since I got my new board, I have gone surfing almost every day. No regrets on this purchase, the board itself is also extremely eye catching and beautiful inside and outside the water.
