About us

Epic Kayaks Hawaii is run by husband and wife, Davey and Tess Brand, who have until now, been living in Sydney, Australia running Epic Kayaks Australia. After 3 successful and fulfilling years they have moved to Oahu where Davey grew up on the North Shore to take on the great adventure of running Epic Kayaks Hawaii. They are both really excited about this next step & believe there is an amazing opportunity to take the sport of surfski paddling to new levels in Hawaii. 

Davey has made a significant impact at Epic, both on and off the water, in Australia and internationally over the past few years. Building Epic’s Australia office, Davey has somehow found time to pursue his competitive interests on the water too both here and abroad. Paddling and introducing people to paddling Epics are two passions that make Davey’s position growing the market in Hawaii the perfect fit. 

Tess is ‘officially’ responsible for being a mom as Davey and Tess recently had a little bub, Charlie, but her passion for the sport drives her to be involved in all aspects of the business. Her main focus is marketing and operations at Epic Kayaks Hawaii. However, her role extends far beyond the job description with her responsibilities ranging from; events through to customer relations, logistics and generally keeping everyone ‘on track’. Tessa is a key ingredient to the heart and soul of Epic Hawaii. 

We’d love to meet you and share our passion for the sport with you, please don’t hesitate to contact us
