With a hull design featuring specs of 4.88 m x 58.4 cm, the Epic V6 is unique in its class. It has a surfski cockpit with the storage capacity of a touring kayak. It also has extremely good shallow water capability with the TrackMasterPlus kick up rudder system also borrowed from Epic’s touring kayak range.
Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski/touring kayak hybrid that almost every paddler should be able master very quickly. The cockpit is the same as the V8 surfski and features a fully adjustable foot brace and a bottle holder. The deck has rear deck bungees, safety lines, and also incorporates bow, stern, and side carry handles. The Epic bailer, breather tube and the patented Trackmaster Plus kick up rudder system are also featured.
Our goal with the Epic V6 is to provide a boat that bridges the gap between sea kayaks and surfskis. By blending speed, high stability and a performance oriented deck & outfitting, the V6 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity. Touring kayakers looking to make the transition to high performance surfskis for racing in the Sea Kayak class, or looking for a simple, efficient boat with storage capacity for touring, fitness or the freedom of an open cockpit will be well rewarded with the V6.
