Product Description

The idea behind the Super Fish II X2 design is to offer a surfboard that rides, paddles and catches waves easily regardless of your ability.

The generous outline and smooth rocker makes this board incredibly easy to ride. One of the most notable features of the Super Fish design is the step deck. This gives the board greater buoyancy while maintaining a performance rail profile making the board sensitive and easier to turn.

The new bottom contour features a deep single-to-double concave providing greater speed and acceleration. The tail wings are now more defined creating bite off the bottom and quicker release through turns. The swallowtail is also shallower than before. This adds surface area under your back foot meaning more speed in flatter waves.

FCS plugs are set up in a tri-quad configuration so you can ride it as a thruster or a quad, and our X2 Epoxy technology uses a multi-layered sandwich process that produces a light yet incredibly durable surfboard that’s ideal for travel.

If you’re looking for a high volume, easy to ride surfboard that’ll increase your wave count then the Super Fish II is the board for you.

    after riding a 9’1″ mal for years after surfing a short board when I was young , it has been a lot of fun enjoying the significantly increased maneuverability that this board offers. it is like a Renaissance of surfing with me attacking the lip much more than I was with a mal. like I think i did a long long time ago

    Very good board ,rode 7’6″,it handles perfect even in large overheads.

    Paul Hartwell January 11, 2017

    I bought the 8’0″ for those smaller fun days when I don’t want to ride a long board. The board paddles great and surfs well. Very pleased with float and maneuverability. I am 6’3″ and weigh 225 pounds. Great board thank you

    I’m 63 years old and 175 pounds. I’ve been surfing for 51 years. I bought an 8 footer and I love it. I have had a 7’3″ poly version for maybe 8 years which is also a great stick. The 8 footer is a wave catching machine for this old man spaghetti arms but WAY WAY more maneuverable than my 9 foot “modern” longboard. Super fun. I tried multiple fin setups but I ended up with a thruster setup with a smaller trail fin for maximum turnability.

    Way better than the new model. I have the CV but owned one of these prior to that. I’ve bought one of the last 7 foot boards. Surfed it tonight and glad I did. Bring back the old design. I don’t mind the new CV model but they are not as good as the 2012 models

    The service from GSI was top class and the discounted price for such a high quality board is brilliant value. I’m travelling and the board is certainly tough enough to handle it. I have had in the surf only three times and really just a beginner. I don’t have the technological understanding about surf to make real comment on the board but the last two times I have had in the water it is improving my confidence and is starting to show what it will eventually be capable of doing. That’s the most I can say at the moment. I’m 60 and the board is an 8ft Superfish II

    I’ve had a 7’3″ and it was a fantastic board. I sold that because it was probably a bit corky for my weight. I went to buy another one around the time the Superfish 3 were introduced and I couldn’t get the 7’0 Superfish 2 anymore. I noticed the other day that they have appeared back on GSI and had to have one. I noticed my mate who had the 7’0″ and weighed probably over the 100kg mark was floating on it with ease and I decided on the 6’8″. WOW, it still floats me and is so much looser. I ride it with the 4 fins provided and add a little 2.5 in the back fin box for drive and stability and it is brilliant. Great boards and tough.

    This review intended for beginners who fear trying a transition style/fish board…

    I’m 6’1″ and about 205-210 depending on the number of burgers/beers. Started surfing 4 months ago on a 9’3″ longboard and having a ball, but had trouble with bigger days and steep waves. I wanted to try a slightly shorter or more nimble board to work out the bottom turn as turning the longboard can sometimes seem like a lot of work. I’ll grant that I just need to improve, but I’m impatient.

    To get the sense of a more maneuverable board I demo’d the original Superfish and was shocked that I could get up right away (thought I’d struggle for hours as I went down 1’3″ in length). Not a trouble at all.

    Board felt as stable and paddled well into surf. So I went out and got a 8′ Superfish II, and love it. The best thing is that the board seems clearly more maneuverable (even set up as quad), so I’m able to better get up early and make a more abrupt bottom turn–a skill that I’ll hone and then bring back to the LB also.

    I’m clearly a newbie so take this for what it’s worth, but the analogy I’d give is that it is like when shaped snow skis first became available on the market. I’d been a lifelong skier, and by snobbery alone continued to ski long slalom skis until I just couldn’t find em anymore. Then I reluctantly tried big ‘ol fat board shaped skis and wished that I hadn’t wasted several seasons without them.

    I think the superfish board makes the sport more approachable for the beginner for sure, and ultimately I suspect I’ll learn faster because of it!

    Great job, thanks.

    I am 59 years old, 6’2″, 205 lbs, have been surfing since the late 60s, and had been riding an 8’0″ original Superfish for several years.

    I recently purchased a new Superfish II X2, and had planned on moving down to a 7’3″ model, but realized the new 8’0″ had less total volume then the old model, so I bought the 8’0″ and am very glad I did.

    I have surfed it in 2 ft mush, and head high clean and glassy walls. Like my old Superfish, this board catches waves like a longboard, but turns on a dime.

    I ride it with a quad set up and it generates incredible speed off the bottom, blasts through soupy sections, and holds tighter in the pocket then any board I have ever owned.

    I really appreciate all the improvements from the softer step deck to the fuller swallow tail.

    This board is perfection. Thanks for taking it to the next level.

    I live in Jupiter Florida and having been surfing for over 25 years. I weigh around 195 lbs. I bought the 7’3 7S superfish X2 model. I am also a windsurfer and love the epoxy for both its durability and float.

    During Sandy last week the board performed great on a offshore wind I think because of the extra weight.

    I was able to get in early while the young guys on shortboards were struggling with dropping in. I think the quads are faster compared to riding it as a thruster.

    I researched this board and feel confident in my purchase.

    I am 55 and 175lbs. I live near the gulf of mexico (small slow mushy windswell) and travel to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Hawaii, and northern and southern California regularly. My skills and fitness are average and I spend about 3-4 days a month in the water (not quite a weekend warrior).

    I have owned the 8′ version of this board and now have the 7’3″.

    The 8′ Superfish XL poly I had was a phenomenal wave catcher. It took me some time to get used to working the back of the board to make it maneuver but I got the hang of it and loved it. My only regret once I had the hang of it was I wished I had gone shorter. Surfing mostly beach breaks I need something that would turn quicker on takeoff and not pearl. I had the poly version and the glass job was thin on the deck. I have many pressure dings after one season of use. I have had a number of boards but this was the worst I have seen as far as the pressure
    dings are concerned. I would pass on the poly.

    Despite the pressure ding problem I loved the float and glide so I decided to pick up a Superfish XL 7’3″ X2 epoxy.

    So far, NO pressure dings (same rider, same surf). I highly recommend everyone buy the epoxy versions of these boards. The X2 with the tougher deck is my preference.

    The 7’3″ is much better for a rider my size in the small gutless surf we get on the gulf. I can enjoy anything 2′- overhead and a half with this board. I would characterize the board as very buoyant, and extremely light so it paddles FAST. This is my longboard. Being older I wear out more quickly than I used to. This board makes it easier to paddle and catch waves and I can last longer in the water as a result. This is a great product.

    If you should surf a longboard (conditions & fitness) but would rather surf a short board this is your board. A great way to have lots of fun on a wave but still be able to catch them with the effort normally exerted on a longboard.
