Design Statement from Greg Barton
The Epic V12 is designed to be the ultimate downwind machine for elite level paddlers.
Even though the Epic V14 has been very successful in major, openwater events (including 3 Molokai victories), our team riders expressed the desire for a surfski that is more nimble in the runs. So we added a significant amount of rocker, reconfigured the cockpit to give a dryer ride, moved the rudder forward for more control and added a hint of extra stability to give full confidence when it’s time to lay the hammer down. Elite level surfski racers will appreciate the way it easily links the runs together in big conditions.
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.
