Hi all! There is probably already a thread here on this topic, but i can’t seem to find it…
Been paddling surfski for years and although it is great for training and going fast, its not good for much else. Would like to try some touring, but still will primarily use the boat for training…and still go fast. I’m currently paddling an Epic V10, and i love it but won’t be keeping it. I’m intrigued by the Epic 16X as it looks like the touring version of my V10.
Although i don’t mind being tippy, i think for touring there is some comfort in being able to relax even if things are a little choppy. I have no idea the difference in stability between a surfski and a “performance” touring kayak. All that said, which kayaks should i be looking at?
BTW - i’m 6’3", 185. Would like to have the ability to do some shorter camping trips (2-3 days at most).
