Ocean Kayak® Names Robwil Valderrey to their Angling Pro Staff

(July 28, 2015)

Robwil ValderreyAt the 2015 ICAST sportfishing tradeshow, Johnson Outdoors Watercraft announced the addition of Robwil Valderrey to their roster of professional anglers. Valderrey fishes primarily from an Ocean Kayak® Trident 13™, which is one of the most popular saltwater kayaks in the Johnson Outdoors Watercraft fleet.

Robwil Valderrey began fishing from a kayak in 2012 and claims that his “addiction” to the sport began the very day he purchased his Trident 13 in Virginia. Under the mentorship of other professional kayak anglers like Rob Choi, Kayak Kevin and Kwanza Henderson, Valderrey quickly became a skilled paddlesport fisherman and competitor. His talent, enthusiasm and promotional professionalism caught the eye of executives at Ocean Kayak and Johnson Outdoors Watercraft, who surprised Valderrey with an official team Jersey at their ICAST booth on July 17.

“It was one of the most exciting moments of my life. Just like the Virginia guys who inspired me to become a kayak angler, I hope I can inspire others to find their passion in this amazing sport,” Robwil said.
