YAP, MICRONESIA Grass skirts, stone money and western influence After a rough landing, the airplane door opens and we begin our descent down the stairs in the total darkness of the tropical night. I take a deep breath of the warm, humid air, infused with the mixture of flowers, damp earth and sweat. After immigration, two bare-chested girls in hula skirts hang beautiful leis around our necks. With only two flights arriving per week, each landing is a spectator event. Over the next several days, we explore this island oasis and the ocean surrounding it. Yap has a lush green interior dominated by palm and betel nut trees, and the coast is lined with mangroves. A protective reef surrounds the island and is home to an incredible variety and quantity of sea life,…

sup like an egyptian a family sup adventure on the nile river

The green valley of the Nile transects the African desert like a green snake through sand. It provided life for ancient Egyptian culture and religion - one of the oldest civilizations in the world. The world’s longest river, it flows through Egypt and northeast Africa for 6,853 km (4,259 m) before draining into the Mediterranean Sea. Ever since Manu and I began stand up paddling ten years ago, the historic Nile River has been in the back of our minds. Flying to Africa in February 2016 with our two daughters, we planned to paddle a lower section of the river, immersing our family in Egypt’s daily life, rich history, and timeless mythology. We were eager for the feel of traveling on our modern SUP boards along one of the world’s most…

algonquin outfitters muskoka river x

It’s 10 pm. The sun is down and the lake is dark. It’s raining. A lone canoe glides across the lake, two paddlers pulling in unison; ten strokes a side then switch. The boat slices through the water at a speed not often associated with human powered watercraft. One bay looks like the rest as the team searches for another elusive portage. Blisters on their hands have burst and refilled throughout a day of non-stop paddling and portaging. Food and water are consumed between strokes. Exhaustion has set in. Only nine more hours to go. This is the Algonquin Outfitters Muskoka River X (MRX) and it’s one of the longest single-day, expedition paddling races in the world. Racers navigate a 130 km (81 mile) loop without support. Everything they need they…
