The Epic V5 surfski is Epic’s brand new addition to the rotomolded surfski line.
When the Rotomolded V7 was launched with its proprietary foam core construction that offered unmatched strength and stiffness in plastic kayaks, it became an instant hit in the global surfski market. The V5 has been designed for those paddlers seeking a surfski style sit on top that is even more stable than the V7 & even easier to handle in and out of the water. At 14 feet in length, with a width of 23.6 inches, and weighing only 46 pounds, the V5 provides excellent primary and secondary stabilty in all water conditions & can be easily handled in any situation off the water when loading and carrying. It fits a wide range of paddler sizes, ranging from 4 foot 10 inches to 6 foot 7 inches.
The V5 has an aft storage hatch with a soft hatch cover and a rough water hard hatch cover to ensure that it is water tight in all water and surf conditions. It comes with a standard under the stern surfski rudder, however its capability can be further enhanced with an optional kick up rudder with no modification needed. The kickup rudder allows the V5 to be paddled in rocky or shallow areas.
