The Squirrel is Liquidlogic’s latest white water kayak and the second designed through the company’s Automatic For The People initiative. Demand for a boat similar to Liquidlogic’s successful Remix but with additional bow rocker and volume in addition to an overall increase in volume was high. In fact Liquid Logic used the original Remix model as the starting point for the Flying Squirrel and built in many of the features that both team members and Liquid Logic fans had been calling for.
I have been lucky enough to get hold of one of the first Squirrels to land here in the UK and have been paddling Squirrel each week over the last couple of months. Over the years I have owned a number of Liquidlogic boats including – Vision, Ronin, Biscuit, and Stomper, so I was very interested to give this new #automaticforthepeople kayak a try.
I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours today paddling the new Liquidlogic Squirrel 95. Over the years I have owned a number of Liquidlogic boats including – Vision, Ronin, Biscuit, and Stomper, so was very interested to give this new #automaticforthepeople boat a try.
The boat was borrowed from Northshore Watersports based at the Tees Whitewater course which is located around 10 minutes from home. Always a good place to try out new kit as conditions remain pretty much the same (other than when major block changes have been made!).

The Remix is LiquidLogics displacement hull river runner. The boat has a strong following across the globe but you don’t see very many of them here in the UK. I managed to get a loan of a Remix 79 for a few weeks and spent a number of days on the water in various conditions and locations.
