Fox Island

Paddled around Fox Island the other day, took about 3 hrs more or less, started from the Fox Island Lodge and headed south. The south side of the island is quite nice, lots of key holes and sea cliffs. Saw some puffins and a few eagles, no sea mamals, sounds like they have all moved into the fjords....

I have even been using it as my sleeping pad, its pretty ghetto but for tropical/sub tropical weather its fine if not the most cumfy thing but its kept my weight down and its super packable for pl...

Spent a few days now Paddling in and around Tonle sap lake (largest lake in southeast Asia), in a village named Kampong Phluk, about 2 hrs outside of Siem Reap, it costs about $10 to get from town to the village by tuk tuk. It is a beautiful place, every home in the village is built on top of 10 met...

Under the arm pits instead of under the nuts worked better for us in India.

Looking for a GPS

I am in the market for a GPS, and was just looking for some advice on what folks are using out there and what they would stay away from now, as a result of a bad experience. Thanks and hope to hear back soon, aloha.

India-paddling in Chilika Lake

Chilika lake is an amazing place to paddle, I only wish I could have spent more time there, realistically, I could have spent a month paddling around the lake visiting all the different villages. So, I took an auto rickshaw direct from Puri, rs.450, pricey but I was in a hurry, I arrived to Satapada...

India: Devi river

Started at Billipada and ended at Nuagar, some thing like 22km. Hired my friend Shiva to drive us out the village roads, rough trip, the roads were terrible, but the rural villages were sweet, very beautiful. I had no idea an auto rickshaw was such an off road vehicle. I'm pretty sure some of the lo...

India-Paddling in Orissa

Am on a paddling trip in India and just got my first day in on the water. We paddled the last section of the Kassavadra River, from the Puri-Konark Marine Dr. bridge. I was with 2 friends, they were on a 11'6 SUP and I was in my Yukon Yak. One Girl named Loui from Sweden, and Pratap a young village ...
