The Epic V8 has helped to shape the surfski industry as we know it!
The goal of the Epic V8 is to provide a boat that bridges the gap between sea kayaks and surf skis. 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 surf skis, or cruisers looking for a simple, efficient boat for a day on the water. The Epic V8 will take you there.
The deck features all the surf ski 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. Venturi drain, drain plug and Epic surf ski rudder configurations are standard.
