The May 2020 Instructor of the Month is Jeff Laxier!


“The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration” –Claude Monet


"The kayak is my delivery device into the natural world. I enjoy lazy floats on the river, camping out of my kayak, eddy hopping down whitewater rivers, launching sea boofs in ocean rock gardens, and surfing in sea, river, and surf."

–Jeff Laxier


In 1996, Jeff started teaching kayaking. A lifelong waterman and nature lover - teaching kayaking has become a way for Jeff to share his passion for water and nature with others. In 2005, Jeff founded Liquid Fusion Kayaking. Liquid Fusion Kayaking is an instructional kayak company based on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California. From dry and mild to wet and wild, Jeff and his partner Cate Hawthorne instruct and guide sea kayaking, whitewater river kayaking, surf kayaking, rock gardening/rock hopping, and nature history tours. With 20 plus years of experience teaching multiple disciplines of kayaking, Jeff has honed his instructional skills for all levels and is a master at skill refinement and application and fun. A former member of the San Diego Mountain Rescue Team and the U.S. Marine Corps, Jeff has a dedication to exhilarating outdoor activities that know no boundaries.
