It seems like most of the major U.S companies that are in the paddle sports industry make serious contributions to American Whitewater, but lately Astral has sat on the sidelines for some reason. Why is the leading manufacture of PFDís in the U.S not a partner of AW? Astral makes great products and has awesome customer service but isnít there something more they could do? Perhaps not? Maybe they are financially strapped. Last year they donated $200. Seems kind of weak for a company of their size. Come on Astral! Youíre not even an eddy sponsor.
