Last year, we joined up with National Geographic's Monster Fish guru Zeb Hogan and a team of scientists to explore a remote 400-mile-long river — the River of Doubt (now called the Rio Roosevelt) in southwestern Brazil. Our mission: catch some of the huge fish, and paddle the big whitewater, that Teddy Roosevelt first described during his exploration of this Amazon tributary in…

Professional outdoor and adventure photographer Lucas Gilman recently tagged along with a few Team Dagger members and their Nomads to get some amazing shots in the Columbia River Gorge. There are a couple great shots of both Pat Keller and Brendan Wells.
Red Bull Illume posted the diary entries Gilman kept for the time he was there.
Here is an excerpt:"I got a call from pro-kayaker Pat Keller who said that the… Continue

Getting a good photo isn't just about finding a waterfall to kayak over and having someone take your picture. It's a lot more complicated. Below I've outlined what I do on photo shoots.
First, find a good photographer. I try to use Jock Bradley as often as possible because I know that he always gets the shot.
Then we talk about the paddling gear I will be wearing. The objective is to wear gear that will stand well (contrast.)
After getting to the falls we have a… Continue

On our Dream Result Europe tour I saw the Axiom for my first time. My initial response was, wow, that looks like a great boat for my father. My dad just had his 70th birthday and is still shredding it in a kayak but his Juice had become to edgy and his old creek boat too hard to roll. I decided to get an Axiom for the both of us for his 70th birthday present just before we went on the Grand Canyon. He was STOKED, but I had no idea how stoked I was about to be on it too... … Continue

This spring, I joined two friends at the putin for Upper Trout Creek, a classic class V run that for more than 100 years has cascaded through steep boulder drops to a lake. This trip down Trout Creek would be different though--the recent removal of Hemlock Dam meant that the lake was gone, and we had several new miles of river to explore.… Continue

The past two weeks have been epic out here in the high sierra country of California. With the huge snowpack and cold weather of the spring, it was seeming like the multi-day season would never come, but alas, it finally did and man has it been sweet.
We kicked off the season with a trip into the Royal Gorge of the North Fork of the… Continue

So, California has been going off this year with an incredible amount of water and kayaking to be done. I have been getting after it pretty hard this year tacking up many runs that I have yet to do. The Sierra's really are an amazing place holding some of the best rivers in the world as well as some of the most remote.
I can't begin to explain to you how much i love the rivers here in California. Growing up here for the first 14 years of my life, i once fished… Continue
