Gistermiddag zijn we met ons hele mmsup team voor sup seizoen 2019 het water op gegaan om Amsterdam te verkennen vanuit onze nieuwe lokatie aan Zeeburgerpad. Terwijl de zon zich soms liet zien hebben we een heerlijk middag gehad en zijn we klaar voor sup seizoen 2019!
M&M Stand Up Paddling blog
We couldn’t resist the lovely early spring days and went out for a spontaneous paddle in town last Wednesday afternoon. Currently winter is back but we have good faith that spring will return soon again! All our sup classes and sup events are te be found and booked online via the website. This season, starting 1st April we have a center at IJburg beach and a center in Amsterdam Zeeburg so make sure if you book you select the right location!!
We also love our new hangout in Amsterdam, Kop van Oost only 100 meters from our sup center with the best terrace ever!
We verkopen onze laatste gebruikte sup boards van vorig seizoen. Alle boards zijn slechts een seizoen gebruikt en sommigen zelfs nog nieuw of enkel als demo gebruikt.
Alle boards worden als complete set verkocht. De hard boards inclusief paddle en leash en draagband en de inflatables inclusief tas, pomp, leash en verstelbare paddle. Voor meer info of een test ritje email en dan zullen we het geschikte model voor je vinden en adviseren.
We are so happy to finally announce that we have found a new location in Amsterdam to re open out Amsterdam sup center again this spring: april 2019! We’ll be located about 100 meters from the Windmill ‘De Gooyer’ where we will enter the water for sup classes, sup yoga sessions, sup tours and other sup activities we organise throughout the season.
As most of you know Blijburg beachclub had to close down due to construction work which mant we also lost our center… but…. we have found a new temporary space for next season open our sup centre at IJburg beach too! From april 2019 you can find M&M SUP in ‘Het Baken’ (picture below) looking at the ancient Durgerdam houses and Amsterdam at the horizon.
In about two months we will put the new schedules online but if you want to book sooner let us know and if you are interested in a group sup tour or clinic just contact us via email@example.com
Omdat we het zo mooi vinden hebben we vorige maand met een groepje het Amsterdam Light festival gesupt en zullen we volgende week (09/01) nog een laatste keer deze prachtige openlucht licht tentoonstelling met een groep suppen! Het is zo bijzonder om in de avonduren door de grachten te suppen langs al die mooie huizen en lampjes en het Light Festival geeft dat beetje extra met alle mooie licht kunstwerken langs te sup route.
Natuurlijk kan jij ook meedoen! wel vragen we voor deze sup tour of je sup ervaring hebt aangezien het in het donker is, een tocht van ongeveer 8 kilometer is en we geen gevaarlijke situatie willen. Voor meer info en inschrijven/huren sup board kijk op onze event&trips pagina of mail ons.
After working with BOGA boards for eight years it’s time for a change and we are proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with NSP sup and surf boards. At NSP they go a step beyond in the design, technology and manufacturing techniques used in all their boards. When you buy an SUP or surfboard, you can be sure that only the best research, development, design, manufacturing and customer support goes into everything they do. We will be working with a line up of soft tops and inflatables at the schools and off course we’ll also offer boards for sales. Check out the line up https://www.nspsurfboards.com/product-category/sup/
What we also love is that they respect the environment and the world we play in which means NSP has sustainability values and years of implementing new technologies and techniques to reduce environmental impacts recognized by Sustainable Surf’s ECOBOARD Project. NSP or New Surf Project is renowned for producing great performing, highly durable boards which last longer than traditionally built boards offering better value to all their customers and a greater return on investments for surf schools and rental operators while reducing landfill waste.
Even though we are closed till spring we do organise some sup tours in Amsterdam this fall and winter. Last weekend we paddled in a saturday afternoon through the centre of Amsterdam and had great fun and lot’s pof spectators along the route. To book one of the tours just check our website and facebook page www.facebook.com/mmsup or you can book a private tour with us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We had a great season and lot’s and lot’s of days filled with sunshine and superb weather. Too bad season is coming to and end already. As many of you might know Blijburg is closing and we are busy finding a new location at the IJburg beach and in town again, we miss the urban paddles and tours too much. As soon as we have news about the 2-19 location(s) we’ll off course post it on the website and social media as we are already looking forward to season 2019! For now we hope to see you all before we close down, last classes are Sunday 23rd September.
As usual we are selling all our school boards. All boards are only used one season and in good shape. Let us know if you are interested in one od the boards below. All boards are offered as complete packages. Soft tops with paddle, leash and fins and inflatables with bag, pump, fins, adjustable paddle and leash. Prices vary from €750,- to €999,- If you want to try one or more just book a class or private session and we can advise you and make you paddle the board you might be looking for
We just got some new sup boards in da house! SUP season is approaching and this season we have added some additional sup brands to our line up in the schools. One of the sup brands we have started to work with is Starboard and we are completely in love with the Tikhine design of these boards above. These great looking boards come as a hard board or as an inflatable with the best looking matching paddle we've ever seen!
As soon as we open you can off course have a closer look and try as we have a couple of these boards ready for sup classes and sup test rides as we are also re sellers for Starboard and can advice you and deliver the board that fits your sup needs.
Buying your own stand up paddle board can be a search as there are so many brand, models and types! Are you looking for an inflatable, hard board, soft board, allround board, wave board, tour board, yoga board or a race board? All these question can make you dazzle... We understand all the information is too much. As we already have our stand up paddle school for eight years and paddle for ten years we are able to give you the right information before buying your own stand up paddle board! Next season we have added Starboard, NSP and Fool Moon to our sup boards line up at both schools and you are always welcome to attend a class and try out some boards. If you want some private advice just let us know via mail or phone and we can set up a test date and provide you some information. We will make sure you will get that paddle board that fits your needs.
We also want to warn you for all the cheap inflatables at handy stores and super markets, we know these are cheap but that's for a reason. These boards hardly carry an adult and will not be very nice to paddle as they lack the volume and stiffness that you need to have a good stand up paddle experience.
If you have no patience and already want to buy your own paddleboard this winter no problem! We can also advice and deliver right now!
We are most happy to help and guide you and make the right decision and buy a stand up paddle board you will be happy with and can use for many years!
We are always a bit silent in winter time. Resting from the summer season and preparing for a new season while the schools are closed for (beginner)classes. We don't teach in these months as water and outside temperatures are just too cold. But, for anyone experienced and/or having their own gear? You are always welcome to book a sup tour through the city of Amsterdam with us!
As fall has been quit friendly and soft this is a perfect time to paddle in the city and the canals. Less busy then summer and always protected from winds. Just let us know if you want to book a tour (2hrs minimum) and what your level is, we prefer that you take your own material. If not we will charge a little bit extra for bringing and extra board/boards. Contact us via email@example.com

After weeks of cold wind and lot's of rain we got super lucky last Wednesday and got together around 19:00 at night to take off for the first Full Moon Paddle this season. We left at our Blijburg beach location as they area is great to paddle and watch the Full Moon as the city is more busy and sometimes harder to get a good sight.
We left around 19:30 when the sun started setting and paddled towards the IJlake. As it got a bit too windy we turned around and paddled all the way around Blijburg and got to see the brightest moon in times,
Happy to see and meet all these familiar faces and being able to share one of these great paddles. June 10th will be the next Full Moon Paddle. Hopefully we are able to paddle barefoot by then and enjoy a drink along the way as Wednesday was too chilly for that. if you want to sign up for this paddle do so via email@example.com If you haven't paddled before take a couple of classes with us first as this 2 hr paddle is a bit too much for a first time,
We just unloaded our new BOGA paddleboards for the season! At M&M sup in the city at the Amstel we will only work with inflatables this season and at Blijburg we are offering soft tops as usual. If you are interested in testing one of the i-sups let us know or just book a class and let us know which one you would like to test during the class. All the inflatable boards have a completely new look and design and we added the 11.5' tourboard to the line up!
This is the brand new 10.5 a.k.a. Albacare a great all round family boards stable and easy to handle.
The Caballa 11.5 is a super board if you are looking for some more speed and easy for longer tours or cruises around. The board is still super stable as it is 31 inches wide.
The Abuja 12.6 is your prefect tour board to go out for longer rides and explore other waters. It is less wide and therefor faster.
Off course we also offer the hard boards such as the original BOGA YOGA board and El Tiburon and a couple of cruising boards such as the Todos 10'2
For more info and interest in BOGA Paddleboards let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring seems to be in the air. Birds are singing, temperatures are rising and days are getting longer! Yesterday afternoon a part of the M&M SUP Amsterdam crew came together at the Amstel location for a meet & greet and some fun time on the water.
We're so happy with our new sup location at the Amstel and we'll open there the 1st of April and start off with sup classes, the 4 week start up sup course, weekly Friday Night Paddles and if weather allows it also with sup yoga. We found a great spot that's just a 5 minute paddle where it's super quit and we can do some sup yoga classes. We have a couple of new sup yoga teachers who are looking forward on teaching and sharing the fun!
From March 15th the online booking and payment system will be online again which means you can book online for all classes at the Amstel, we open there April 1st and Blijburg will be openend May 1st. We are looking forward meeting you on the water and sharing our love for paddle boarding. As you might have noticed we're also organising more SUP events, weekends and trips check them out and let us know if you want to participate as some have limited sports. Off course it iOS also possible to book a tour, clinic, workshop (SUP or SUP YOGA or a SUP tour) with friends, family, colleagues just let us know per email and we can set up a date and time: email@example.com
What a great week we had again at the second sup yoga kite week at Bonaire. One happy group of people enjoying the paddle boarding, yoga, TRX (new in our program) and we also had some serious kite boarding action as the wind kicked in this week!
Thanks again to Ladina for the yoga and TRX classes. As the wind was so hard at some moments we even chose to go out for some beach yoga at Klein Bonaire which turned out to be one of the best activities. Taking the boat out there, gliding over the light blue waters and then practicing yoga on this white beach surrounded by the beautiful water and the sound of the waves rolling in :) What else van you wish for.? Afterwards it was time for some snorkelling fun.
Off course we also have time, and make time for some chilling and having a beer every now and then. After the kiteboarding succes for a couple of the attendees we had a good drink, in yoga pose on the beach and watched the sun set!
The next sup yoga kite week is plannend 7-14th October. Let us know if you want to come along via firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to organise more in the winter of '17-'18 and can also customise the week if you would be interested in coming over with a group of friends, colleagues or family. Just send us an email and hopefully we meet on this great and sunny island of Bonaire!
It's almost time to re-open our floating sup studio again! We know it's pouring outside, that gives us time to get ready and prepare for another sup season in Amsterdam! As you might have read we are opening a second location in Amsterdam city right at the Amstel river. We'll have a nice place to store our boards and start classes at the Amstel Boathouse cafe/restaurant. At this location we'll open the 1st of April so you're welcome for start up, follow up and sup yoga classes. We will also organise a Friday Night paddle tour (2hrs so experience needed) every Friday. For more info and times check the new schedule! Our online booking tool will also be online soon!
At our known location Blijburg beach we will open a month (1st May) later as weather can be very rough at the lake in April. To avoid paddling in hard winds, rain and too choppy waters we decided this.
This season we also organise a couple of events: sup, sup yoga and a couple of sup & yoga trips abroad. All info on these trips are to be found at the events & trips header on the website.
For now we are focussing full on the new season and kick off. We will start the season the 22nd March (World Water Day) and ask everyone to come join us (start Amstel 17:00) to clean up the canals and ask for more awareness concerning dirty water: plastic, garbage and drinking water problems worldwide. If you want to attend this paddle you can find more info at the event & trips header.
Hope we meet each other on the water this season again!
