Remix 79 Description

The world works in cyclical ways and whitewater kayaks have progressed tons over the last several years. Change in the sport has taken us to unimaginable places and Liquidlogic has been proud to be driving that change. That said, as boats have gotten shorter, a fundamental concept is in danger of being lost. With the help of dozens of instructors, they designed the Remix series to carve, to glide and to provide beginners, intermediates and experts with that age old rush that comes with speed. Perfect for novices and instructors excited about rolling and proper eddy turns, big water junkies wanting to safely push their limits or experienced racers looking to cash-in, the Remix is a new concept altogether that combines the clear advantages of a relatively narrow and longer hull platform with modern chine placement to create an unrivaled comfortable, stable and responsive package. Like an updated classic tune with its new, funky, progressive backbeat, the Remix blends the soul of the past with the technology of present in a vision for the future.

Remix 79

I have owned the remix 79 for 8 years now. Only complaint I could ever say is that this kayak in my belief is not really suited for beginners. I have had more whitewater kayaks than I can remember over the last 25 years kayaking. This kayak in my opinion is the Ferrari of kayaks. Definitely a drivers kayak. Love it so much that I own 3. And you guys at Liquidlogic are best in the world.

new boat

I didn't get to paddle the boat yet but I did sit in and adjust the seat, very easy to adjust. am looking forward to a little water and warmer temps I' ve paddled you Remix design before and liked the way it rolled and carved. I'm an old man so a more stable boat is what I need. If Woody is still hangin out tell him I said hi.He probably won't believe I've finnaly given up open boats John Deardorff

Get it and don't look back

When I got this boat I thought it was just ok - it was predictable, stable, and boofed pretty well for a 9 ft boat. Then I moved the seat back as far as it would go and found the ULTIMATE boofing, carving, sending machine! The bow climbs high over any obstacles and the stern keeps contact with the water for precise maneuvering and top end speed. I find myself driving it from just behind the seat most of the time. When it gets really steep, you just lean forward and crush through everything in your path. I'm a little low in the weight range at 150 lbs w/o gear, but I don't feel like the boat is too big in any way. It's definitely my favorite boat!

very disappointed

My kayak essentially melted in 100 degree heat on my rack it has a large depression in the hull, the watertight compartment in back is not watertight, the Skeg system is full of sand, and the boat was delivered to me brand new with a seat that was not correctly installed. although I registered my boat liquidlogic refuses to honor my "" warranty ""and I haven't even hit Whitewater with it... yet very disappointed

holds a line others can't, true hole puncher

2 key things the remix does that no other creekers do? First, It pierces holes blowing **through** them rather than over them. Going over means getting stopped by the hole's wave and "buoyed" to its top before the boat can pass over the feature. That buoy effect slows every big name creeker made today. Nomads, Mambas, the Karmas', Burns, Stompers and Jefes. All these rigs' mega buoyancy in those high volume noses are actually a hindrance in pushy calamitous hole-ridden big water. Excellent in true creeks but not designed for big volume descents.
Second, the Remix keeps you on your line better. Less rocker = less ability to track a straight line especially when being batted by laterals. A hockey skate's rocker is meant to turn fast but not to track straight. So as I descend onto NF Payette's monster Juicer, the Mambas, Karmas, etc. get offline or want to turn in that squirrelly water but the running length on the Remix 79?... Well it's no wonder I picked this beauty after noticing all the older seasoned Northforker's ran in them.

After wanting a Remix for so long it certainly doesn't disappoint!

So I have owned two whitewater Kayaks thus far, my Mamba in 8.5 and now my Remix 79. I am absolutely in love with every single detail of my 79 from the outfitting to the seat. The seat is an amazing step up in comfort from the seat in my Mamba and adjusting the backband and overall fit on the boat. The backband uses a ratchet system which makes getting those minor adjustments painless. And compared to my older style Mamba it's a hair longer but weighs 10 pounds less, which I can attribute to the foam pillars and aluminium exterior handles.
I love the fact that it had ample storage space in the stern which allows me the option of possible overnight trips camping out of my boat if I ever need to. The list of what I can do with my Remix ranges from flat water to to pretty big whitewater, it's certainly a boat that I will use for a very very long time and enjoy it every moment i'm in it.

Great All Around Boat

The Remix 79 is a great all around boat. It's fast, turns great, stable and rolls easy. I'll be using this boat for years to come.

Fast as s'

Boat gets up to speed with little effort. Lack of rocker is no problem bc you'll blast through anything.

Remix 79 - only paddled once so far!

I have only paddled my new Remix once so far. I am used to a flat bottomed Diesel 75, so the Remix is definitely different. It is longer and the edges are rounded, so it is definitely easier to go through my personal level of class 2+ rapids. It is going to take me a couple of trips to get used to the very different primary stability and to get used to depending on the Secondary stability. I realize that this is the way the Remix is, with several fellows telling me about this! I can give you a more detailed personal review after a few more days in it, but so far I have very high hopes for this boat to be my lifetime #1 boat! Jerry Toth

Foot room!

I am a geezer - gray hair and pushing 60 years. Love the joys of wild water. Like the fact that my 34" inseam and size 12 feet have a little room to wiggle and move around inside the Remix79. Have not had access to a river, only used it one day and that was in the Atlantic surfing. Surf was not huge, about 2-4 feet, but plenty tall to "pearl" if not making a takeoff turn to run down the line. The Remix does not run like a board with skegs, but it will pick up waves pretty easily, run along nicely, and bubble up in Maytag land. The couple times I needed to roll seemed uneventful. Wish a lot more boat designs offered the option of raising knees to a midline position and permitting feet to move around to stay comfortable on longer trips.

AWESOME BOAT !!!!

Been paddling the Remix 79 for a couple years now and still loving it. The best boat I have paddled to date, great for big water, teaching , beginners , and advanced paddlers. The Remix does it all. I liked it so much I bought my son the Remix 47 to learn in. I would definitely recommend the Remix for anyone looking for a new BOAT.

I love the remix!

I've been paddling the Remix 79 for a few years now, and it'd definitely the best kayak I've ever paddled. It carves, boofs, punches holes, and it's fast. I feel more confident on big water and creeks in the Remix than any other boat, ever.
