The Epic V5
The Epic V5 is now available in two lightweight composite layups, the Ultra and Performance, as well as the extremely durable Rotomolded layup. Ultra layup is shown above and in more detail in the gallery below, along with the new color for the 2019 Rotomold V5!Excellent stability allows beginners to jump on and paddle with confidence and give more experienced paddlers a short, stable surfski to use in big or rough conditions. Sleek lines and Epic’s comfortable surfski cockpit make the V5 perfect to learn downwind paddling and great for playing in the surf zone. The V5 composite, with its lighter weight, is even easier to carry to and from the water and unload from your roof rack. The V5 comes standard with under hull rudder, adjustable foot brace (including pedals that automatically adjust line length), rear storage compartment, bow and stern handles, center carry handles, water bottle holder and Epic’s patented bailer. An optional stern kick up rudder can be added to the Rotomolded version with no modifications needed to allow the V5 to be paddled in shallow or rocky areas.

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. The cockpit is the same as the V8 surfski and features a fully adjustable foot brace and a bottle holder. The deck has rear deck bungees, safety lines, and also incorporates bow, stern, and side carry handles. The Epic bailer, breather tube and the patented Trackmaster Plus kick up rudder system are also featured. Our goal with the Epic V6 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 V6 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity.

The Epic V7
Rotomolded kayaks have traditionally been heavy and difficult to handle, both on and off the water. The Epic V7 breaks that mold and 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 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. Its capability can be further enhanced with the optional kick up rudder (no modification needed). This combination allows the V7 to be paddled in areas where composites cannot.

The deck features all the surfski simplicity of the V10 and V12, the main components being a fully adjustable footbrace and rear deck bungees. The V8 also incorporates some new features that add to its user friendly appeal: molded in bow & stern carry handles, and a water bottle holder in the cockpit. The Epic bailer, breather tube and Epic surfski rudder configurations are standard. 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.
SPECIFICATIONS: Length: 18’0″ (5.48 m) Width: 21.25″ (54 cm) Depth: 13″ (33 cm) Capacity: 99-320 lbs (45-145 kg)
The Epic V8 DOUBLE
Surfskis are no longer unstable racing craft capable of being paddled only by professional athletes. Most levels of paddler can get onto a V8 DOUBLE and paddle proficiently from the first day. Newbies will appreciate the way they can jump on and go without spending their first sessions bracing or capsizing. The V8 Double gives intermediate paddlers the confidence to venture out into more adventurous conditions – Surf’s up! Experts will enjoy showing their non-paddling friends or relatives the thrill of surfski paddling. The V8 Double is also the perfect vehicle for parents to introduce surfski to their kids. The Epic V8 double is easy to carry with side handles at each cockpit in addition to bow & stern handles. The front cockpit accommodates paddlers from 5’0” to 6’7” in height, while the rear cockpit will fit those from 4’10” to 6’5” tall.

The Epic V8 PRO
The V8 Pro is the perfect boat for those who want a performance upgrade from our popular V8 or a high performance ski that is a bit more stable than the V10 Sport. In terms of speed and stability, the V8 Pro fits perfectly between the Epic V8 and the V10 Sport.The V8 Pro includes the same great outfitting features of the V8, including the bow, stern and center carry handles, water bottle holder, and the patented Epic bailer. 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.

The Epic V10
The legend continues with the Gen 3 Epic V10! Our customers asked for a ski optimized for downwind surf conditions. The result is a nimble surfing boat for advanced paddlers, that doesn’t require elite level stability skills. The Gen 3 V10 has increased rocker and modified seat placement compared to the Gen 2 V10. The length is reduced to 20’6” or 6.25m. Stability is similar to the Gen 2 V10 which feels rock solid for advanced paddlers in a variety of conditions. The ergonomic cockpit facilitates easy remounting, and the adjustable Epic bailer keeps your ride dry. The new V10 seat is barely wider than the V12 seat – still narrow enough to feel secure to average to smaller paddlers, with a few added mm to accommodate those squeezed in the V12 or V14. The under-knee hump is reduced for improved leg drive. Experienced paddlers will find the 2018 Gen 3. V10 to be the perfect all-around boat for a variety of conditions.

The Epic V10L
The V10L has all the winning features of the popular V10 with an optimized hull for paddlers 75 kg (165 lbs) and under. The cockpit of the new V10L also accommodates shorter leg lengths than the V10. The “L” designation stands for lower volume for lighter paddlers.

The Epic V10 SPORT
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. The bailer can be completely closed for flat or cold water conditions and has four adjustable positions depending on the conditions. It can be easily operated with your foot so you never miss a stroke.

The Epic V10 DOUBLE
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.
SPECIFICATIONS: Length: 24′ 11″ (7.6m) Width: 19″ (48.3 cm) Depth: 16″ (40 cm) Capacity: 530 lbs (240 kg) (Optimum Team Weight 130 to 190 Kg)
The Epic SLS10
The SLS 10 has been designed in collaboration with 16 times Australian Surf Life Saving champion Clint Robinson. Epic’s chief designer, Greg Barton & Clint carefully spent time testing and re-testing every element of the design on multiple prototypes to get it perfect. The result is a ski that has incredible speed, comfort & strength. Some of the key elements of the SLS 10 include: Highly efficient when heading out through the waves. As it punches over, the white water surrounds the tail of the boat, giving it the ability to stay straight. The lifter at the front of the ski and deck have been developed to help the paddler keep momentum through waves & minimizes the amount of water that hits the paddler or slows down their speed. The hull of the ski provides strong pick up pressure from ocean runners and allows the paddler to head down wind or back to the beach with good assistance. The rocker throughout the shape provides good flat to light conditions speed, as well as the ability to move smoothly out in the ocean waves and swell. The cockpit provides excellent paddler comfort and biomechanics, allowing them to generate quality speed & power. The double foot-well system in the adjustable SLS 10 minimizes the volume of water that is carried in the cockpit. This system is extremely strong and supportive for quality leg drive. The SLS10 is a product to paddle anywhere at any time – it has strong internal support and is built in Epic’s extremely strong, stiff and durable vacuum infused, heat cured composite of Carbon, Fiber Glass & Kevlar. The SLS 10 (adjustable footboard) will be followed by a fixed leg length version of the ski, with the same hull. The fixed length version is still in the prototype phase & being finalized.

The Epic V11
In a class and category of its own, the V11 is an exciting new addition to Epic’s line of innovative surfskis. The V11 is for the progressive paddler who is looking for a boat that is agile and extremely responsive, making short work of the most difficult conditions. The V11 (At 19ft, or 5.79m) has been designed to carefully balance length and stability with boat volume, to optimize this boat’s proven surf characteristics and not lose its racing edge. The V11 cockpit and seat design continues the Epic tradition of optimizing comfort and leg drive. With Epic’s signature comfort, style and extreme performance, this boat is a new breed of thoroughbred.

The Epic V12
The V12 is designed to be the ultimate downwind machine for advanced to elite level paddlers. The updated design has more rocker, a reconfigured cockpit for a drier ride and a more responsive rudder position, all with more stability than the V14. After testing several prototypes in locations around the world, we feel this is the best surfski for elite, open-water paddling, especially in big downwind. The V12 is faster than the V10 on flatwater and is a good choice for those looking to move up. Highly skilled elite level paddlers with perfect stability skills will find the V14 slightly faster on flat water. But as soon as the wind and waves pick up the new V12 will be their weapon of choice. Mere mortals who want a really fast boat on flat water that can also handle rough stuff will find a good fit in the V12. It is noticeably more stable than the V14, but less stable than the Epic V10.
SPECIFICATIONS: Length: 21′ (6.4m) Width: 16.9″ (43 cm) Depth: 13.8″ (35 cm) Capacity: 310 lbs (140 kg) Paddler Fit: 5’5″ to 6’7″ (1.65m to 2.01m)
The Epic V14
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.
SPECIFICATIONS: Length: 21′ (6.4m) Width: 16.9″ (42.9 cm) Depth: 12.6″ (32 cm) Capacity: 300 lbs (136 kg) Paddler Fit: 5’5″ to 6’7″ (1.65m to 2.01m)
