Liquidlogic Kayaks – Alpha

Check out the new kayak from Liquidlogic.

Liquidlogic Kayaks - Alpha
Liquidlogic Kayaks – Alpha

We started the 9-foot fast creeker / river runner revival and the Alpha is our latest creation in the class. This machine has a large smooth transitioning bow rocker to gobble up holes and boofs while the center section of the hull is flatter to help with speed, stability, and agility. Longer boats no longer have to be hard to paddle. This baby is nimble! The subtle kick rockered stern profile is modeled after the Braaap which gives it a predictable quick carving fun feel on the water. If you are looking for a confidence-inspiring boat that can make your local run fun or take care of you on the hardest whitewater you paddle. Give the Alpha a try.

River Elf Storm Rider – Review

I’ve waited long enough to author this review to allow me a chance to use the River Elf, Storm Rider M for close to a dozen times under varied, low water/high water conditions. That, to avoid the manifestations of the typical instant euphoria reflecting in reviews of new, exiting toys.

The kayak fell off a raft stack last year and got dragged on the freeway for a bit. I used a plastic soldering iron and a square of plastic from an old kayak to patch it
