Either "Speedbump" or "Master of the Universe" but it depends on your perspective.

For example, when they say the words "grab onto the loop" its the latter.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

I know some rafters love "River Maggots" or "speed bumps"

I like to think of kayaks as "river sports cars" since a raft is a "river bus".

It seems that in every kayaker group, some lucky kayaker is usually bestowed the title of: "the probe".

I agree with Andy, but I'm usually referred to as dirtbag by the kind folks carrying my beer. And as long as they keep em cold they can call me anything they want.

nicknames are not assigned, they are earned.

i am very hairy, solitary, and i like to roam around the woods and the mountains by myself.....thus....the yeti.

like others have said, if you just pick a nickname, it has no special meaning, nothing that makes you smile when you hear it, no inside story. its just lame.

think back to stuff you have done that makes people laugh. think about inside stories between you and your friends. again, earned, not labeled.
