Epic Kayaks - Surf Rudders

  • Surf Rudder

Product Description

Out of Stock - Epic Australia are no longer supplying rudders and other spare parts to their dealers - if you require a Surf Rudder please contact them directly

If you need to replace a rudder or want to change to a different one there are now three types of Epic rudder for use in different conditions:

Epic Universal Rudder

The Universal Rudder was the original Epic surfski rudder. Designed to be an “all around” performer, 
it offers decent purchase in big water with acceptable drag and marginal weed shedding abilities 
when combined with a weed guard.

Epic Surf Rudder (this listing)

Paddling in big water? The Epic Surf Rudder has a much bigger blade surface and deeper purchase, 
and offers superb traction and control in big wind and waves.

Epic Weedless Rudder

A shorter rudder for paddling in smaller conditions where you may encounter weeds. 
combined with the carbon Weed Deflector (sold separately), the weedless rudder is designed to shed seaweed and prevent those irritating hangups during your training session or race.

Choose your model surf ski from the dropdown list above:

  • 19cm shaft  - V8 Original / V8 Double / V10 Double (contact us to order & check availability)
  • 16.4cm shaft - V8 New / V12 Gen 1 / V14 
  • 14.3cm shaft - V10 / V10L / V10 Sport / V12 Gen 2 / V8 Pro 

You can also add a Weed Deflector for assisting in shedding the pesky seaweed that clogs your rudder (separate listing) - two sizes to attach forward of your surf or universal rudder.

    Had to cut the shaft to make it fit my V7, in big surf I could notice big difference controlling the ski down and across the waves and when I was in front of the wave in the white wash..

  3. Where have you been all my life?? 5 Star Review

    Why hasn't anyone told me about this rudder??? It's awesome!! The product blurb says that the rudder offers "superb traction and control in big wind and waves" and they're not lying. I've been ocean paddling for over 5 years now, and I've always struggled in bigger conditions, but since fitting this rudder it's like some sort of magic is suddenly at work and it's done wonders for my confidence. It doesn't appear to be that much bigger than the stock-standard rudder, but it just holds and stabilizes so much more than my old rudder. I guess it's got something to do with the rounded shape?

    Can't recommend highly enough for Epic surfski owners who are into downwind ocean paddling.
