Epic Surf Ski Lay ups

There are four layup options available over the range of surf skis and sea kayaks:

Epic Trim colours

Epic Trim colours

Club - the most economical construction option in the range. It is also the heaviest construction, yet comparable to most other brands' standard boats.

  • Fiberglass on a core mat

  • Vacuum bagged with polyester resin

  • Blue bow & stern

Performance - composite hybrid. Considered by Epic 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.

  • Infusion grade foam core

  • Composite hybrid of fibreglass, carbon fibre, and Kevlar

  • Vacuum infused, heat-cured epoxy

  • Black bow & stern

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

  • Nomex honeycomb core

  • Woven carbon and Kevlar fabric

  • Vacuum bagged, heat-cured epoxy

  • Red bow & stern

Elite - extremely light and stiff, a step up from the Ultra lay-up, but with similar durability. Being both lightweight and strong are priority number one for these boats, perfect cosmetic finishes cannot be expected.

  • Nomex honeycomb core

  • 3K carbon fiber laminate

  • Vacuum bagged, heat-cured epoxy

  • Black gel coat with white bow, stern and cockpit

Note that not every layup option is available for every model.

Epic Surf Ski Comparison Table

Which Epic Surf Ski is right for you? Remember the longer and skinnier the ski, the faster it will go as it cuts through waves and the longer lines make it easier to surf downwind. However (lack of) stability may overcome ability, and the fastest ski may the the one that stays upright!
