Speed, stability, agility.

The V9 has it all in spades. The latest entry to the Epic surfski line up can take you to new and exciting places you’ve only dreamed of: downwind surfing, open-ocean crossings, challenging races, fitness sessions, or just plain fun. Decades of experience in advanced hull designs have produced the most versatile surfski on the water! At 19’ x 19”, the V9 was designed by Epic’s founder and chief designer, Greg Barton, to fill a sweet spot between the V8 Pro and V10 Sport. Like the Gen 3 V10, the V9 has been optimized for downwind surfing, with increased rocker, and stability. Flatwater speed is a step up from the V8 Pro due to the slightly narrower beam. This is the boat many paddlers have been waiting their whole lives for – the one that launches you onto the swells, glides efficiently across the water, and keeps you in the “zone”.

The comfort of Epic surfskis is legendary. We believe that better comfort leads to greater performance. If you’re not comfortable in the boat, nothing else matters! The seat ergonomics of the V9 are superb, incorporating the shape of the Gen 3 V10 seat, with a lower “hump” under the knees for improved leg power. The cockpit configuration, with the fully adjustable Epic footboard, accommodates paddlers from 4’11 to 6’6” tall (1.5 to 1.99 m). Our popular side carry handles make it a breeze to carry solo.

The V9 also comes with Epic’s revolutionary high-volume bailer system. The bailer can be completely closed for flat or cold water environments, and has four adjustable positions depending on the conditions, from mild to wild. It can be easily operated with your foot so you never miss a stroke.

Decades of experience in the making, by arguably one of the world’s best designers, the V9 is the boat we have all been waiting for!

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.
