Surfski paddling burst into the sports scene around 2017 and its popularity continues to grow as its accessibility improves, more people learn about it, and the boards become more performance-oriented.
If you’re already a fan of surfskis, then you’re familiar with the versatility of these long kayaks–as well the joys of its versatility. A surfski board is sleek and fast (one of the fastest), and it can be paddled on rivers, oceans, lakes – on water that’s smooth, choppy, with swells, breaks, and waves, and downwind or upwind. You can paddle at your own pace, meaning you can take slow and easy or paddle to set your own personal best record!

With craft like Epic’s stable V-5 or V-7, it’s relatively easy for anyone to get comfortable and feel the glide.
