Epic surfskis - light fast fun.

Fast is fun and there is not much out there that is as fast and as fun as Surfski's. While at first we thought they were for advanced paddlers only we were wrong. This is a great boat for paddlers of almost all abilities and we are putting together a top notch clinic to get you on the water. If you like a fast, light, kayak that is fun and easy that's just what a surfski is all about.

Surfskis are fun to paddle on calm water as well as the open ocean. They are very fast, very safe (sit-on-top and self-bailing), lightweight (about 30 lbs), and incredibly maneuverable with a foot-operated rudder. In this session, we provide stable models to teach essential skills such as body posture, use of the wing paddle, and remounting the surfski in open water.


We welcome Epic Kayaks Kenny Howell (pictured below and bottom right) to the shop to lead this clinic. We even have boats available to rent or you can bring your own. We will also have some of the high performance Epic Surfski's available for you to test ride after the clinic.


This clinic is perfect for first time Surfski paddlers as well as intermediates looking to improve their paddling.You should have some basic kayak experience to be considering the class. Just the basics. 

A wetsuit is not a bad call but not necessary - the water is quite nice down here. You will be offered the option of practicing remounts. That means learning how to get back in the boat just in case you fall out.

Do dress in quick dry clothing based on synthetic fibers. No cotton. Lycra, Spandex, Nylon, Polyester materials like in Yoga Pants, Work out gear, biking apparel, or sports jerseys.
