DIRTBAG BOOKCLUB: KAYAK DE ESTILO LIBRE by Carlos Martin Romanillos

This awesome illustrated how-to guide is the perfect stocking stuffer for the kayakers who “habla espanol!” Reminiscent of William Nealy’s “Kayak”, the artwork will entertain any boater in the DBWorld. Not being able to read or speak Spanish much better than a preschooler (lo ciento, yo hablo malo y poco…) we contacted Carlos who graciously told us all about this fun book in both Spanish and English. ¡Muchos Gracias, Hermano! ¡SALUD!
