The NEW 2018 Epic v10

The legend continues with the Gen 3 Epic V10!

Our customers asked for a ski optimized for downwind surf conditions – and we’ve delivered! Greg Barton has melded the features from our highly acclaimed 2017 edition V12 with the new V10. This is a nimble surfing boat for advanced paddlers, that doesn’t require elite level stability skills.

The original Epic V10 introduced many user-friendly advances that are now common on top surfskis. The single footwell and adjustable foot brace with self-adjusting pedals – all V10 innovations! The original V10 greatly expanded the surfski market with a blend of speed, handling and stability.

The Gen 3 V10 has increased rocker and modified seat placement. The length is reduced to 20’6” or 6.25m. Greg’s analysis showed this length, combined with the new rocker profile, gives a noticeable improvement in maneuverability while maintaining good hull speed. 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 for 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 V10 to be the perfect all-around boat for a variety of conditions. But don’t take our word for it - test paddle the new V10 at an Epic dealer near you!
