Full Name: Ignacio Soler Fabre
Resides: Gran Canaria, Spain
Weapon of Choce: Carbonology
Favourite Vaikobi item: Any of them, I really love every piece of equipment and they all are essential in every travel but if I had to pick one it would be the PFD, it's as comfortable as my pyjamas and I think it is bright as a ray of sun, and useful as as a swiss knife, light, versatile, comfortable and user friendly when it comes to travel and race. It's easy to fit anywhere and you don't feel you wear it when paddling, IT'S A WINNER !!
I also love the V Cold gear, I have raced in Northern Spain in winter and and In the northern Sea in France and the water is freaking cold, instead of putting on hundreds of thermal clothes I just need to put my V-Cold pants and the V-Cold Storm top on.
