With a hull design featuring specs of 18’ x 21.25”, the V8 is unique in its class. Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski that most kayakers should be able to hop right onto and paddle off. The deck features all the surfski simplicity of the V10 and V12, the main components being a fully adjustable footbrace and rear deck bungees. 

The V8 also incorporates some new features that add to its user friendly appeal: molded in bow & stern carry handles, and a water bottle holder in the cockpit. The Epic bailer, breather tube and Epic surfski rudder configurations are standard.

Our goal with the V8 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 V8 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity.

Fitness paddlers and racers who want extra emphasis on stability, touring kayakers looking to make the transition to high performance surfskis, or cruisers looking for a simple, efficient boat for a day on the water. The V8 will take you there.

Weight Matters

The surfski's weight has a significant effect on a paddler’s fun and independence. Starting with the initial loading of the boat onto a vehicle, then unloading and carrying to and from the water - a heavy kayak can quickly make kayaking a tedious and even painful process. A lightweight kayak, on the other hand, makes the whole experience easier and much more enjoyable. Transporting your boat is no longer a dreaded chore or a team effort! Once on the water a lightweight kayak feels more nimble and responsive and offers better acceleration. A light Epic Kayak will make you want to get back on the water as soon as you can!

Epic Kayaks is committed to the development of innovative construction methods and materials. Other kayak manufacturers produce “lightweight” versions of their models but don’t be fooled! Many manufacturers’ published weights do not include all outfitting and actual weights are often significantly heavier than advertised. Epic’s advertised weights are for fully-outfitted kayaks. We stand by our stated weights and guarantee them to be accurate within 10% at the time of purchase. Epic uses high-tech lightweight materials to build boats that are strong, durable and ultimately far lighter than the competition. Epic is in a class by itself when it comes to weight and value.


Construction Options

Performance - The Performance construction is a composite hybrid. We consider it to be the best value in the industry. Epic Performance kayaks are significantly lighter than the competition's equivalent products, yet are offered at a comparable price point.

- Foam core

- Composite hybrid of fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar

- Vacuum-infused, heat-cured epoxy

- Available on most kayaks and surfskis (sea kayaks and surf skis all have white deck and hull)

- Performance construction boats have black accents on bow and stern


Ultra - The Ultra construction is very light and popular with the fitness and racing paddlers. It is light, stiff, and extremely strong in the water. Our Ultra disclaimer states that while stronger in the water than the Value and Performance lay-ups, the Ultra is more susceptible to impact damage and requires more care when handling.

- Nomex honeycomb

- A Composite hybrid of Kevlar fabric, carbon fiber and fiberglass

- Vacuum-bagged, heat-cured epoxy

- Available on all kayaks and surfskis (white decks and hulls only)

- Ultra construction boats have red accents on bow and stern

Available on all kayaks and surfskis (white decks and hulls only)- Ultra construction boats have red accents on bow and stern.


Elite - The Elite construction is extremely light and stiff, a step up from the Ultra lay-up, but with similar durability. The Elite layup uses a thin but durable black gelcoat as a finish to help keep the weight at a minimum. Slight cosmetic imperfections should therefore be expected in the finish of the Elite layup boats.- Nomex honeycomb- 3k carbon fiber- High temperature cure, vacuum bagged- Available on select surf skis only- Black gelcoat with white tips and cockpit.
