Coddiwomple (v): To travel purposefully toward an as-yet-unknown destination. (English slang) Being part of the world of paddle sports is like having membership in a secret club. Driving, we give subtle waves, and head nods to others with watercraft on their vehicle’s roof, whether it is SUPS or canoes and kayaks, checking to see if we know or recognize who is inside. It is impossible for river people to drive past a roadside strip of rapids without swerving for a quick scout, for the ocean-minded not to stop and peer at the swell. The wide-range of people who find joy in paddling is something that never ceases to amaze. We are engineers, lawyers, poets, college professors, contractors, roofers, doctors, and the terminally under-employed. Despite our differences in lifestyle, there is an undeniable…

nicaragua – exploring the miskito coast by foldable sea kayak –

“Peeling away from the pier , I let out an elongated sigh of relief . Birds chirped above us , my paddle sliced gracefully through the blackwater of the lagoon —this is exactly what we came for .” We found ourselves on the Miskito Coast by accident. In 2015, after completing a packrafting expedition in the Nicaraguan rainforest, we wound up in the ramshackle port town of Puerto Cabezas, or “Port,” as the locals call it, on the Atlantic coast.The day was scorching hot with unrelenting heat waves, so hanging near a crumbling pier opting for more water time seemed only natural. Before long we stumbled upon an elderly tribal fisherman commuting down the coast to his village in his rusty, weathered panga. Perplexed eyes turned towards us when we asked…

one for the bucket list + the fishing eden of west end, bahamas +

“Suddenly, it was possible to hit up a good 90% of any kayak anglers bucket species- in one spot within paddling distance of a comfy bed and excellent food and drink.” The call from Redfish Chuck came in around February. “Hey James, any chance you’d be interested in bringing the Jackson Kayak Media House film crew to Old Bahama Bay Resort, our luxury marina resort in the West End Bahamas, to fish a bit?” I quickly did what every professional would in my position: I Googled “West End Bahamas fishing,” clicked on “images,” then on videos, and then preceded to to check on flight costs. “Yes please.” I know you’re asking, what did I see in those 11 seconds on Google that immediately had me telling the wife and kids about another “work”…

father & son a voyage of discovery on the danube

“BELGRADE WAS A TURNING POINT THAT ALLOWED US TO SEE OUR MISSION FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. WE GOT RID OF THE PRESSURE WE HAD PLACED ON OURSELVES TO REACH THE BLACK SEA AND JUST ENJOYED EVERY SINGLE DAY AS IT CAME.” When my father, Ernst Egger, first sat me in a kayak 22 years ago, neither of us could have imagined where it would lead. Today, 28-year-old me is still kayaking; what was once my hobby is now my passion and my profession. Through paddling, I have achieved everything I ever wanted to and more than I could dream. Sleeping by the water, having breakfast and getting back in the kayak until the sun goes down again, and then re-setting up camp on another beautiful shore, exploring the river day by day:…
