Perfect leash for races, for a quick-release at the end of the race. Coil leash attaches just below the knee.
The Deluxe Leg Leash is equipped with a quick-release carabiner. This is a valuable feature for paddlers, as you typically do not want to be attached to your boat in larger shore break conditions.
We recommend that you always use a leash! In strong winds, our lightweight boats can blow away from you faster than you can swim. Practice your remounts while wearing your leash(es) so there are no surprises when you are forced to remount.
Please note: these leashes are designed for use in races for the quick release carabiner and are not guaranteed to stay connected under extreme tension, or in extreme conditions.
Lightweight and extremely tough, with a small profile.
Perfect for staying connected to your boat and/or hanging onto your paddle! The Paddle Leash attaches to your paddle shaft allowing you to keep track of your paddle in case you lose grip or require both hands to remount.

Our new ergonomic Back Pad for Epic surfskis is made of closed-cell foam and attaches to the seat with a velcro strap. The contoured shape is designed to provide lower back support for paddlers desiring additional comfort while still allowing freedom of movement.
Some surfski paddlers tend to 'slouch' in the seat, and the Epic Back Pad acts as an anti-slouch device! The pad is approximately 1" thick at the top and tapers down. It can also allow our shorter paddlers to better reach the pedals.
Install - Align the top edge of the Back Pad with the highest point of the rear of the cockpit where it is still vertical - just as the seat shape breaks backward for the comfortable 'lean back' cutaway.
If you plan to remove the entire pad and velcro at some point, you should try to first attach a strip of pipe wrap tape to the rear of the cockpit first, and then attach the self-adhesive velcro to that.
*Remove pad from the seat when transporting at high speeds.
