Whitewater Rock Garden Kayak Tours on the Mendocino Coast:
A story of creation and evolution-We love kayaking and playing in the rock gardens of the Mendocino Coast in our whitewater kayaks. As Liquid Fusion Kayaking evolved to teaching paddlers of all skill levels, we tossed around the idea of introducing novice paddlers to rock gardening.

Our vision was to be able to share the fun of kayaking in ocean rock gardens with those who wanted an adventure in the rock gardens and sea caves of the Mendocino Coast regardless of their kayaking skills and experience. We wanted to create a trip that could get our students riding pour-overs and playing in the whitewater features of the ocean in a 3 hour trip.
We experimented with some friends to see if this would be feasible (it is great having friends that love to play and are always up for an adventure). While we liked the comfort and performance of our "old school" decked whitewater kayaks, we recognized that our athletic and water savvy non-paddling pals needed a kayak that was more user-friendly. Inspired by the "wash deck" kayaks of the Tsunami Rangers and our own love of the maneuverability of whitewater kayaks, we decided upon the Dagger Torrent - a sit on top whitewater kayak formerly called a Perception Torrent.
