Liquid Logic Jefe Review with Fred Norquist

The Jefe has been one of the best creek boats on the market for a while now. It's overall performance on different types of creeks make it a great creek boat. I’ve been paddling the Jefe series for three years now, and I love the way the boat performs in all situations.

Here is a sweet little video of the Jefe going big in California with Demshitz on the South Branch of the Feather:

  • Boofs really well
  • Has plenty of rocker for all that Colorado mank
  • Resurfaces fast
  • Best outfitting in the industry


  • The lack of edges makes it more difficult to track
  • Heavy compared to a lot of other creek boats on the market

The Verdict:

The Jefe is a sick creek boat that will help you navigate the gnar, whether it’s your backyard creek or a high sierra multi-day expedition.
