Stability to Jump In and Go
The Epic V5 opens up a whole new world to performance paddling. Excellent stability makes it easy for anyone to jump in and go. Sleek lines and Epic’s comfortable surfski cockpit make it fun for all. Epic’s proprietary foam core construction creates stiffness unmatched in plastic kayaks.
Surfski Touring Hybrid
With a hull design featuring specs of 16’ x 23”, the Epic V6 is unique in its class. It has a surfski cockpit with the storage capacity of a touring kayak. It also has extremely good shallow water capability with the TrackMasterPlus kick up rudder system also borrowed from Epic’s touring kayak range. Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski/ touring kayak hybrid that almost every paddler should be able master very quickly.
Durability and Performance
The new Epic V7 sets a new standard for rotomold performance. It is lightweight, extremely efficient, and easy to handle. The V7 is outfitted with the same high quality fittings as every surfski in the Epic lineup, including our carbon fiber footboard and pedals and the hugely popular Epic designed bailer. In addition, it features an aft storage compartment with a lightweight, waterproof hatch that puts the V7 in a class of its own. The 17’ x 21” V7 adds a whole new dimension. It offers similar stability to the V8 with the increased durability of a polyethylene kayak.
Fast Yet Extremely Stable
With a hull design featuring specs of 18’ x 21.25”, the V8 is unique in its class. Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski that most kayakers should be able to hop right onto and paddle off. Our goal with the V8 is to provide a boat that bridges the gap between sea kayaks and surfskis. By blending speed, high stability and a performance oriented deck & outfitting, the V8 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity. Fitness paddlers and racers who want extra emphasis on stability, touring kayakers looking to make the transition to high performance surfskis, or cruisers looking for a simple, efficient boat for a day on the water. The V8 will take you there.
Epic V8 Pro
A Livelier Version of the Popular V8
The new Epic V8 Pro is the perfect boat for those who want a performance upgrade from our popular V8. The V8 Pro adds 12” of length (30cm) and takes nearly 1.5” (4 cm) off of the width, creating a surfski that is livelier and faster. In terms of speed and stability, the V8 Pro fits perfectly between the Epic V8 and the V10 Sport.
The V8 Pro will fit paddlers from 4’10” to 6’5” in height. The reduced hump under knees will be appreciated by smaller paddlers. Taller paddlers between 6’5” and 6’7” will be better suited in the V8 or V10 Sport.
Epic V10 Sport
Best All Around for Speed and Rough Water Stability
The V10 Sport offers terrific flat water speed and exceptional rough water performance, similar to the V10, but with more stability. It is the best all-around surf ski for intermediate to advanced paddlers in a variety of conditions! Intermediate level paddlers will quickly appreciate the higher speeds on flat water, while advanced paddlers will enjoy the enhanced balance, speed and handling characteristics in larger conditions. The V10 Sport fits a wide variety of sizes, accommodating paddlers from 5’0” to 6’7”. The footbrace is fully adjustable with self-adjusting pedals. The V10 Sport now comes with Epic’s revolutionary bailer system.
Designed for Competitive Flat Water and Shines in Heavy Seas
Designed from the ground up by Oscar Chalupsky, Greg Barton, and computer whiz John Dixon, the Epic V10 is incredibly fast and agile while maintaining comfortable stability. While we met our goal of designing a boat that is faster than the competition on flat water, the Epic V10 really shines in downwind and upwind heavy sea conditions.A fully adjustable footbrace combines with a high-capacity venturi drain to keep water out. The single footwell and front deck cutaway allow for a closer, more powerful stroke. The adjustable footbrace with self-adjusting pedals will accommodate paddlers from 5’3” to 6’7” in height. A smaller paddler would be better served by our V10L surf ski model.
Winning Combination Optimized for Paddlers Under 165 lbs
The new Epic V10 has been the most successful all around surf ski over the past year - getting rave reviews from advanced level paddlers for its speed, handling, ergonomics and stability. With the new, redesigned V10L we’ve taken that winning combination and optimized the hull for paddlers 75 kg (165 lbs) and under. The cockpit of the new V10L also accommodates shorter leg lengths than the V10.
Extremely Fast with a Hint of Stability
The goal of the V12 was to make the fastest surfski possible. Mission accomplished, until the V14 came along!
With more stability than the V14, the V12 is still an excellent choice for paddlers wanting an extremely fast surfski, yet not extremely unstable.
The V12’s results speak for themselves. It has won multiple Molokai World Championships wins in the hands of different paddlers and other wins all over the world in many different races.
Lightning Speed for Experienced Racers, Focus on Fast
The V14 is designed to be the fastest surfski on the market for mid sized water conditions. We’ve pulled out all the stops to go beyond the V10 and V12 with an even sleeker shape and narrower waterline. The bow of the V14 is much narrower compared to the rest of the Epic ski line. This helps the V14 knife through wind chop & small waves.
Epic V10 Double
Designed to be Fastest in Class and User Friendly
Our goal for this boat is very similar to our goals when we introduced the V10. We wanted to make a boat faster than anything existing in the class, while still making it user friendly enough that a large number of people can enjoy it.
The seat is very comfortable and ergonomics are superior with the cut outs to allow a closer paddle stroke. Bailers are standard in both cockpits, allowing quick drainage when needed, with the option to close them and give a dry cockpit with decreased drag in flat conditions
