Reviews The Liquid Logic Remix 79

I had the pleasure of testing out the Liquid Logic Remix 79 on Pine Creek & Numbers of the Arkansas River and Gore Canyon at high water. Never have I felt more confident in big water than in this boat. It's fast and maneuverable and it carves into eddies with speed and control. It has made me realize that creek boats are not the best choice for running higher volume rivers.

  • Displacement hull makes it really easy to control in high-volume big water rapids
  • Liquidlogic has some of the most comfortable outfitting on the market
  • This is one of the easiest boats to learn how to paddle with


  • Doesn't have as much rocker as a full-on creek boat, like the Liquidlogic Jefe
  • It can sometimes be too fast, if you aren't already used to the speed

I now have a Jefe Grande for creeking and a Remix 79 for river running and instruction. The extra hull speed really makes a difference when river running. I feel safer and more confident that I can maneuver on bigger rivers. I strongly recommend the Remix for anyone who is learning to kayak, because it is stable and forgiving, and it punches through holes better than any boat I have paddled in many years.

For size reference: I am 6'1" and 175lbs, and the Remix 79 is a perfect size for me. My buddy Evan is 5'9" and about 160lbs and he likes the Remix 69. They also have a 59 and a really small one for kids.
