Epic Kayaks & Surf Skis

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

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