Roque Freitas is Brazilian, but it was in Panama that he discovered kayak fishing. In 2012, after 2 years of having moved to the country, he started to think about a more environmentally friendly way to go further into fishing. He bought his first kayak when he was still in Panama thinking about practicing the sport as it is practiced today.
A year later he met Pascal Artieda and could see all the construction of the lodge on the Costa Selvagem. Roque was also a fishing guide for the Brazilians who visited the Lodge all these years and also did all the transportation for the clients of the Panama Kayak Adventure from Panama City.
Meanwhile, after testing all the kayaks available in the Panamanian market for fishing, he decided to import his own models and thus promoted the practice of the sport all over the country.
Currently, his company is the largest seller of fishing kayaks in Panama and responsible for organizing the most important kayak competition in the country, the PanaYaks Kayak Fishing League.
With more than 8 years of experience in promoting Panama to Brazilian tourists and also promoting kayak fishing in Panama, nothing better than doing it in the first kayak fishing lodge in the world and also in one of the best spots that exist for kayak fishing.
Roque takes over the lodge from Pascal with the responsibility of following in his friend's footsteps and making his trip to the Wild Coast the best kayak fishing experience of his life.
