Unsponsored Q&A Series – Diego Robles

Diego Robles is a young kayaker who is pushing and developing the sport in the emerging Ecuadorian paddling scene. It is a great honour to have such a great rising star and ambassador of the sport to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series.

What has been your biggest accomplishment in the kayaking world?

Astrals New PFD

Astral have released details of their new YTV PFD. It looks like a nice and simple design. It’s definitely one I’d like to try out.

For 2013 we are proud to announce new freestyle inspired design from Astral, the YTV. This newest addition to the line introduces our Torso-Lock™ foam platform that has been in evolution for almost 8 years now. The YTV was created to be “Simple by Design” to address the specific needs of freestyle kayakers , sailors, and general use whitewater enthusiasts. We also wanted to create a design that was ideal for first time paddlers looking for a comfortable and easy to use lifevest.
