What we say;
Arguably the fastest 14' watercraft on the market, the V5 will surprise you with it's speed vs amazing stability.Great for the beginner to intermediate paddler or anyone wanting a fun all around performer.
What Epic Says;
The Epic V5 is now available in two lightweight composite layups, the Ultra and Performance, as well as the extremely durable Rotomolded layup.
Excellent stability allows beginners to jump on and paddle with confidence and give more experienced paddlers a short, stable surfski to use in big or rough conditions. Sleek lines and Epic’s comfortable surfski cockpit make the V5 perfect to learn downwind paddling and great for playing in the surf zone.
The V5 composite, with its lighter weight, is even easier to carry to and from the water and unload from your roof rack.
The V5 comes standard with under hull rudder, adjustable foot brace (including pedals that automatically adjust line length), rear storage compartment, bow and stern handles, center carry handles, water bottle holder and Epic’s patented bailer.
An optional stern kick up rudder can be added to the Rotomolded version with no modifications needed to allow the V5 to be paddled in shallow or rocky areas.
Overall the V5 is just a super fun boat to paddle in all conditions.
