The V8 Pro is Epic's latest surfski design. This is the perfect surfski for paddlers seeking a significant performance upgrade from the popular Epic V8. Compared to the V8, the V8 Pro adds 12" of length (30 cm) and cuts nearly 1.5 inches (4 cm) off the width, creating a surfski design with paddling dynamics that are both livelier and faster than the V8. 

In terms of stability and speed, the V8 Pro fits perfectly between the V8 and V10 Sport, allowing proficient V7 or V8 paddlers to take the next step in performance. 

The V8 Pro cockpit has been designed with a slightly reduced "hump" under the paddler's knees, a feature which will be appreciated by smaller paddlers. It is optimized to fit paddlers from 4'10" (147cm) to 6'5" (196 cm) in height. Taller paddlers between 6’5” and 6’7” will be better suited in the V8 or V10 Sport.

The V8 Pro includes the same innovative outfitting features of the V8 including bow, stern and center carry handles, water bottle holder and the patented Epic bailer.
