The Legacy Continues...

Introducing the Generation 4 V10

Born on the ocean



A Brief History of the V10 Surfski


The Epic V10 ignited a revolution in surfski design when introduced in 2005 and the latest model continues the legendary performance on the water thanks to trailblazing R&D and two decades of experience in the rapidly evolving world of ocean surfski racing. The Gen 1 V10 had an unmatched combination of speed, stability and surfing performance, as well as the ingenious Epic adjustable footboard. The Gen 2 V10 brought improved stability, ergonomics, and special features like the Epic bailer and carry handles. Building on positive feedback and results from the Epic V11 and V12, the Gen 3 V10 included more rocker, some bow rake, updated seat ergonomics and an optimized cockpit position to make it turn on a dime; the waterline length was slightly shortened for a better fit in steep waves.


Generation 4 V10


The Gen 4 V10 builds on the Gen 3 enhancements by incorporating features of the latest Epic V12 that paddlers rave about. Sharing the unique bow shape of the Gen 3 V12, the Gen 4 V10 surfs like a dream, rising up after slicing into a wave, and is less affected by cross winds. The result is a more user-friendly model that allows more people to excel and experience the thrill of surfski paddling. With the streamlined bow and increased rocker profile, the new V10 gives the best downwind performance of the V10 series yet!


Stability has increased over previous V10 versions, giving you full confidence to apply power in downwind conditions – essential for taking a powerful stroke and catching the wave of the day! Upgraded seat ergonomics put the paddler in a more upright position while the lower hump height allows more effective leg drive. The seat width is similar to the Gen 3 V10, giving just enough hip room for those that need it, while still keeping you well-centered in the bucket.


Advanced performance, phenomenal comfort, and cutting-edge design. These elements define the all-new Gen 4 V10. As Epic’s legacy surfski model, the V10 continues to evolve and make waves around the world. With that spirit of evolution and continued innovation, we have created a unique, nimble boat for advanced/intermediate skilled paddlers that doesn’t require elite level stability.


Additional Fun Facts About the Gen 4 V10

· Seat fit is similar in width to Gen 3 V10; similar to the V11 bucket, the seat back is more vertical, providing for a more upright posture, and the hump has been lowered further for better leg drive and improved ergonomics.


· Bow & stern handles are absent in keeping with the preference of advanced paddlers; the bow handle can create unwanted spray in downwind conditions.


· Remounting will be similar or easier for some paddlers compared to other V10 models due to increased stability. The sides are not as high as V11/V12 at the seat, making remount easier than those models.
