  Epic and South Africa
  Posted by: willi_h2o on Apr-03-13 7:35 PM (EST)

Epic was born in South Africa via Oscar Chalupsky
and Greg Barton making plumb bow kayaks.

South Africa has surf - lots and lots of it.

Those 2 guys put their name, reputation and soul, into
a design that worked awesome in that environment.

A 12 time World Surfski Champion and a 4 Time Olympic Medal Winner
developed a kayak design in the world of SURF aka South Africa.

Some might want to tell them their designs suck
and need more old school rocker and extended bow.

Does plumb bow belong in the surf
- others in South Africa certainly think so
