Very sweet!!!!!! Congrats to you!!!!!
I notice it says 10th Anniversary. Has Epic really been around 10 years already? I joined in 04' and remember over the years the build and concept of the boat. It has been very intriguing watching them grow.

Dope ass boat! love the integrated leds in the gel. Congrats!

Yeah doesn't seem like they've been around 10 years at least as fat as released product goes but I suppose the company could be. If they were counting the Toyota version of Epic it would be greater than 10 years.

Epic wake boats and the toyota epic have no relation. just coincidence that the name (brand vs model) is the same.

Nice ride Jeff. What is the production number on the 10th anniversary edition? I know that is a limited run. Let me know when you hit Anna and I will point you in the best spots to shred. There is also a big air contest June 23th if interested. I can get you all of the info if you want to attend. Epic is one of the sponsors for it. I'm sure they would love to have your ride floating around the area for the day. Not any Epics on Lake Anna that I have ever seen.

Sweet boat man, I always liked the looks of Epic and some of the features. Normally not a fan of gee whiz stuff but the LED setup is pretty slick.

Very cool boat! Epic did an awesome job on the integrated LED's on the side.

Is the graphic lit up with fiber optics or does it have led's shingling onto it? The only thing I still don't get is how the wall of water washing up onto the transom does not take its toll on the speakers, wet sounds or not. Sick looking boat and I'm sue you'll have a lot of fun with her.

Nice boat Jeff. Is this the same one that Adam was in at the factory? What happened to the old VT Epic? I assume this one is a personal boat.

Sorry I was so slow to respond just got back from the ALT Games college championship in OKC.

Jamie- I'm not sure of the number ill get back to you on that but is 1/10 made I believe. I should be riding in the Big Air contest so I will be there, not sure if i will have my boat at LKA that day though. I usually ride down by hunters.

Pete- I'm working on the wake pics didn't forget

Reed- The graphic is back lit by LED's that are turned on by a wireless remote. I haven't noticed any water on the speakers even after riding and falling for a while and they sound great.

Alan-Thanks. I don't think so this one was built fairly recently. I'm not sure were the VT epic is actually, Adam had it for awhile but its moved on as far as I know. This one is my boat I actually just graduated from VT and will be moving to Richmond. Any tips on were to ride?

Cool. Pm me if you want to hook up sometime. Hunters is be best place to be on the cold side. Always just a corner away from decent water, even on windy days.

Nice pics. I love your 10th anniversary Epic, that is one sweet boat. The LED's really set it off.

Not to be a hater but that Skull wrap on the Epic in the last picture is kinda sad. Why cover up a $70k boat with cartoon skulls? Definitley not my cup of tea but to each his own.

Your 10th anniversaty though, is off the hook. Love it.

Wow, look at that wake!!

wake looks awesome.

Just curious, all of the pictures that are posted seem to have the tanks less than full, what happens if you fill up the full 4000lbs? do you have to speed up a ton? does the wake start washing/curling?

Nice Jeff! A bit of an upgrade from the prostar!

Pete- I try not to surf because if I have the board on the boat I tend to not wakeboard at all, I'll try and get some next time I'm on the H20

Trapper. Just so you don't think I'm completely full of B.S Every Boat If ridden I will usually fill weight till it doesn't get on plane then drain a little and ride..but half on the epic seems to be doing the job right now(still 2k ish).I will usually ride with the tanks around that level plus 5-8 people. Of course I filled everything to see what its like who wouldn't, had to speed up a lot. Ill get fully loaded pictures up soon because like you said as far as I know they don't exist on wakeworld.

Miles- Long time buddy how you been, been way to long since we rode together what you been up too? yea upgrading from the Prostar to this has been crazy so much fun having a V-drive

Try the front almost completely full, keep the rears where you have them and the tab at 1/4 down. I think you will like that.
