When champion kayakers decide to start their own company, you can bet they are going to bring something special into the mix; that's exactly what has happened with Epic Kayaks: Founded in 1995, Epic was quickly recognized for their innovative designs and high quality manufacturing.

After enjoying the benefits of lightweight, well designed racing equipment, it was a shock to Epic founders Greg Barton (2x Olympic Gold Medalist) and Oscar Chalupsky (11x World Molokai Champion) the first time they paddled with heavy, unrefined touring kayaks and paddles. They thought, “Why can’t modern technology be used to build better touring equipment?” They've paddled the equivalent of 6 times around the world with 70 years combined experience in all water conditions. Their passion for paddling and knowledge of high performance racing technology is contained in every Epic designed kayak and paddle. Their boats are optimized for ease of handling, efficiency in the water and to be extremely lightweight. Whether you’re a beginning recreational paddler or a highly competitive racer, Epic equipment will improve your paddling experience.

The Epic V10 Surf Ski

Designed from the ground up by Oscar Chalupsky, Greg Barton and computer whiz John Dixon, the Epic V10 is incredibly fast and agile while maintaining comfortable stability. While we met our goal of designing a boat that is faster than the competition on flat water, the Epic V10 really shines in downwind and upwind heavy sea conditions. A fully adjustable footbrace combines with a high capacity venturi drain to keep water out. The single footwell and front deck cutaway allows for a closer, more powerful stroke.

The adjustable footbrace with self adjusting pedals will accommodate paddlers from 5'3" to 6'7" in height. Smaller paddlers will be better served Epic's available V10L.
