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.

We are engineers, lawyers, poets, college professors, contractors, roofers, doctors, and the terminally under-employed. Despite our differences in lifestyle,…

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…

Dun Magazine’s Jen Ripple fights one on the fly. James McBeath leads the day’s planning session. Jim Sammons lands his first bonefish on the fly. Each day paddlers get to return home to the resort’s incredible beach. “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…

Daniel in front of the sculpture of Decebalus, the last king of Dacia, now modern day Romania, at the Iron Gates. The Danube ranges in width from three-kilometers, pictured here, to a mere 300 meters at the mouth of the Iron Gate. “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,…
