Perfect leash for races, for a quick-release at the end of the race. Coil leash attaches just below the knee.
The Deluxe Leg Leash is equipped with a quick-release carabiner. This is a valuable feature for paddlers, as you typically do not want to be attached to your boat in larger shore break conditions.
We recommend that you always use a leash! In strong winds, our lightweight boats can blow away from you faster than you can swim. Practice your remounts while wearing your leash(es) so there are no surprises when you are forced to remount.
Please note: these leashes are designed for use in races for the quick release carabiner and are not guaranteed to stay connected under extreme tension, or in extreme conditions.
The new Epic Boat Sock will help protect your boat while in storage or on the road - it is a great addition to your Epic products. There are several sizes available, and they are fitted to your ski.
Note that the fit is not as tight in the back part of the boat, as there is some space in the sock to account for the shape of the skis as well as to accept any length rudder. V7 fits into the V8 cover with a bit of extra material left unused.
Warning: The boat sock is breathable and therefore is not waterproof or completely dustproof. The sock does not provide protection from hard impacts or from dropping your boat.
The Epic Kayaks boat stands are the perfect way to store your ski! They also make a convenient support while you are washing your kayak and are easily transported to use before a race or a paddle while setting up your boat. They are made from lightweight aluminum and the durable fabric sling conforms perfectly to the shape of your boat. They fold flat for transporting or storage when not in use.
Always try to support the weight of your kayak equally (do not place stands at the very ends of the boat). On shorter and wider boats, it may be necessary to move the stands a bit further towards the bow/stern than the skinnier boats. This is acceptable.
The Epic Surf Rudder has a much bigger blade surface and deeper purchase and offers superb traction and control in big wind and waves.
Please note there are variants of the rudder that you order. Our skis have different rudder lengths per ski so to avoid receiving the incorrect rudder for your ski, please check that you have selected the correct option.
