I bought my board several years ago and this thing is a tank. This has become the load hauler for any paddle in camping that we do. While it is slower and heavier than a lot of other options but this thing is as stable as the day is long.

So I love my Jackson SUPerFISHAL board. I bought this heavy board specifically because it would bounce off any jetty rocks I fish around. Well now I can say that this board can literally handle a ton of bricks dropping on it! An entire birck wall collapsed on top and there was ZERO damage! (Well the skegs underneath got bent a little, but they can be fixed). This board may be a little heavier than most and doesn't track as well, but if you want a bulletproof SUP to fish from, look no further! I've slaughtered countless bass in Bayou St. John on this board. Hopefully I'll get a chance to use it again soon!

I have owned the SuperFishal for about four years, and it's perfect for me. I have spinal issues, so I can't sit too long in a kayak; is why it's perfect for me. It's well balanced, and I even fly fish off of it, with ease. My back is more stable standing, and I can see fish strikes better from a higher angle. I transport it with a paddle board carrier, which manages some of the weight. Durability is one of its greatest assets, in and out of the water. Perfect, for a better fishing experience, while exercising the upper body.

Previously owned the Supernatural,saw this upgraded fishing version and love it. Surpasses all my expectations - the paddle/bottle holder is great - don't have to lean down to get my paddle and it doesn't float away so I don't have to use a leash, which gets in the way when I fish. Pros the built in Paddle stager - the front molded hard deck with straps holds my tackle box and stuff. Plenty of tie downs for my cooler and drybags. Extra thick padding is easy on the knees. Cons It's a bit heavy Usage This is mainly my fishing SUP, both friends like to use when they are learning because it's so stalbe.

It seems a lot of people don't understandt he intended use of this board... Sure it's a slower board and it may not track super well but it's a fishing board... Meant to move quietly, which it does except for a little hull slap in wind or chop. It's really stable and I've been landing some great fish! Pros Quiet, comfortable, reasonable price Cons Doesn't track super well but a good paddlers will overcome Usage Fishing, exercise

I live in Santa Rosa Beach Fl. I fish on my Superfishal 3 times a week in the bay and various bayous. I target bull redfish primarily. I love the stability and width of this board. I landed my first tarpon over 72 inches from this board. A milk crate and cooler fit perfectly giving you the option to sit down in windy and or longer paddles. Pros Stability..width..customization Cons Hull slap..water stays on deck Usage Fishing

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 4/2/2015
Indestructible! I use and abuse this board down rocky shallow rivers all the time and it holds up great. It rides fine down river with my 75 lb lab, camping gear and myself. I don't like the ride of inflatables and other hard boards can't hold up to the abuse of Texas hill country rivers. I run class II with my dog just fine and have run class III without. (Although I would recommend the supercharger for class III) IThe speed and tracking is fine going down river but would definitely not recommend for flat water. For an overnight or multi day camping trip on a class I - II river, this is the best board on the market. Pros Durable and stable with room for plenty of gear. Cons Tracks terrible in flat water. Usage River trips.

While on vacation in Florida last summer I had the opportunity to try out the Jackson superfishal. my friend had two of them and we took them out for an afternoon on the bay. my friend/ owner really likes this board. I found it suitably stable for a novice boarder. the only draw back was it seamed a bit heavy to me. Pros stability Cons weight Usage recreational

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 9/2/2014
Extremely Durable but otherwise un-awesome. If you're looking for something to abuse, this may be it. I bought mine to go marsh, river and saltwater fishing. I found it to be REALLLY slow, heavy and hard to maneuver compared to other SUPs. It's extremely buoyant and durable and is rigged well for fishing, but I couldn't stand being left by my buddies on other hard boards that weren't rotomolded. If you're looking for versatility, I would recommend going with an inflatable. I sold this board after using it for one season. When I contacted Jackson about how slow it was and how it wouldn't track straight to save your life they acted like they never heard of such things and didn't care that I was extremely unsatisfied. This board has one real use, paddling down river (with the current). Other than that, it's horrible if you've been on other boards and are used to paddling at any rate of speed and going straight. I bought a TOWER 14 foot iSUP and then a BOTE Drift inflatable fisher. Both were lightyears ahead of this board and durable enough for what I need. I'm giving this board 2 stars because it's good for SOMETHING (rivers) and that's being generous. I HATED it. Pros Durability, Buoyancy, Capacity, Already rigged to fish Cons HEAVY, doesn't track straight, SLLLLOOOOOOWWWWW Usage Fishing in lakes, salt water, fresh water and rivers

I was able to try this sup recently. The padded deck is super soft for kneeling and standing. It was stable and has lots of storage spaces. I struggled to paddle due to poor tracking.

I had an opportunity to try this board as a demo recently. First of all it was very stable and comfortable. Also it had a lot of places for storing your stuff. However,Jackson did not bother to put fins on it for the demo causing it to fish tail with every stroke. Not good. I can only review it like it tracked when I tested it. Pros Comfort stability storage Cons Heavy ,poor tracking Usage Lake

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 3/22/2013
I love this SUP!!! Such a blast to paddle, fish and play, and you can't find a more bombproof SUP for your buck. Roto-milled and capable of carrying 350 lbs, anyone can have fun on this. The front deck attachment has a place for your water bottle, paddle holder at about a 35 degree angle, 2 fishing rod protectors, bungees and straps for whatever you want to store on the front. I personally keep a large tackle bag with rod holders on the front held down by the bungees for trolling. There are brass inserts in 6 places on the SUP for ram mounts, camera mounts, fishing rod holders and comes with a GoPro mount. On the rear of the SUP you will find more straps for an ice chest or other gear plus bungees to hold your fishing rods or paddle. The new foam membrane covering almost the entire walking surface of the board is firm and comfortable for long periods of standing. Speaking of standing, the stability of this SUP is magnificent!! You can literally stand on the edge with your feet hanging halfway over and the SUP will not turn over, though you may lose your balance and fall LOL. Jackson used the pontoon design and scupper ports like they do on their other fishing kayaks to help balance speed, support and stability as there is no foam inside the hull. And if you are looking for speed, this SUP may not be your exact cup of tea due to weighing 69 lbs. For tracking, there are 2 removable fins underneath that work fairly well. If you get tired of standing, feel free to sit, kneel or sit on an ice chest to paddle without worry of tipping. I have comfortably fished on this multiple times and have yet to fall even while fighting a 5+lb largemouth bass this past week. I live on the windy, flatwaters of Oklahoma so I have yet to try it for its other ratings of being ocean worthy and able to handle class 3 rapids. But I can see it handling those challenges with ease. I purchased this SUP having in mind that I wanted to be able to pond hop, fish, play, take the girlfriend out for a picnic on the water and be able to have my dog enjoy my adventures along side me and it has met all my expectations with ease! Great exercise too!! Pros Cons Usage
