Epic surfskis1

Convenience is key when we are trying to cram water time into our busy lives and surfskis are a convenient way to get your fix. While they are the fastest paddle craft on the water they are also easy to use.

V5 in the shop2And one of the best boats to get you started is the Epic V5 Surfski. The boats is available in tough roto-molded plastic construction as well as 2 lighter weight options. While this boat is fast over the water it's also quite stable and the perfect boat for any aspiring new paddlers. In addition its shorter waterline makes for a surfing machine in the waves. That shorter waterline, and lighter weights also aid in making transortation on the carea breeze, The roto molded boat weighs in at only 48lbs and costs only $1295!

If you are looking for something a bit more lively than consider getting one of the NEW V5 in Epic's lightweight 'Performance' construction boats which come in January. The performance contruction features:

  • Infusion grade foam core
  • Composite hybrid of fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar
  • Vacuum infused, heat-cured epoxy

The build quality of this boat has to be seen to be believed and the result is a lightweight sit-on-top kayak that is super stable and easy to paddle. It looks fantastic and will bring a smile to your face on and off the water. The Performance construction boat weighs in at only 35lbs! At $2495 it's a great deal for the money and we think the sweet spot in Epics construction line up. A nice low weight with real world durability.

Need it lighter? Well Epic has answered the call with a 27 lb version of the boat in their 'Ultra' construction. At $3495 be carefull not to leave it alone on a windy day!

Your first demo is free. Let us show you why the new V5 could be the kayak you have been looking for. Check out the video below for more insight into this unique kayak.
