Several years ago, the Epic V8 opened up surfski to a completely new and much broader market. Surfskis were no longer unstable racing craft capable of being paddled only by professional athletes. Suddenly, anyone could get onto a V8 and paddle proficiently from the first day.
In the same way, the Epic V8 Double makes surfski paddling even more inclusive. Newbies will appreciate the way they can jump on and go without spending their first sessions bracing or capsizing. The V8 Double gives intermediate paddlers the confidence to venture out into more adventurous conditions – Surf’s up! Experts will enjoy showing their non-paddling friends or relatives the thrill of surfski paddling. The V8 Double is also the perfect vehicle for parents to introduce surfski to their kids.
The Epic V8 double is easy to carry with side handles at each cockpit in addition to bow & stern handles. The front cockpit accommodates paddlers from 5’0” to 6’7” in height, while the rear cockpit will fit those from 4’10” to 6’5” tall.
