Sometimes it is super fun to go paddle on a different and new location. We have paddles the Amsterdam canals many times by now and even these canals get the same after a while. SURF LIFE camp owner Harry Glotzbach is a dear friend and BOGA teamrider and lives right at the Amsterdam Forest where he took me for a paddle last month. While paddling the idea popped up to organize a up tour in this beautiful forest in Amsterdam. We had some rain, we had some cloudy, we had a bit of wind... But who cares... It was one of the most impressing paddles ever in Amsterdam. Afterwards we had some drinks and bites (thanks every one for taking some) and Harry and his girl played some songs so it did actually feel like an after paddle summer picknick! Felt like we were in a fairy tales forest trees hanging over our heads and silence filled with rain drops and birds singing. Amsterdam Forest we'll be back!

As there are so many sup schools, rental locations and sup locations opening in the Netherlands at the moment it is about time we start adding some quality to them and connect. M&M SUP is part of the SUPCLUB Netherlands group. About seven connected sup schools are combining their strength and know how in this group. All these schools are working with certified teachers (ASI, HSA, WSA etc) to make sure they know how to teach and work according to safety standards.
We are also collaborating and all have our own area';s we work in, as we these schools are located throughout the whole of Holland and we has a school in every area. In the near future more schools will be added to this great initiative that will guarantee quality and offers a wide range of sup classes, sup courses, sup tours and sup events locally or together. One of the first collars is the SUP & YOGA weekend in Eindhoven organized by M&M SUP (Amsterdam) SUPCLUB Eindhoven and PURA SUP (Roermond) the 9th and 10th of July. We believe that working together makes us stronger and offers much more for us and for you.

A couple of weeks ago the famous German vlogster Linderella called us as she wanted to try out some sup & yoga really bad for her blog with us. As weather was really bad and chilly that time we had our doubts but she had planned her Amsterdam trip already so, fingers crossed. All our sun dances where heard and the morning Linda came for her class with the crew the clouds opened up and the sun welcomed us!
Linda had a great time, even though she struggled a bit with the cold weather and water... So happy that we could offer her one of our brand new Zhik wetsuits that kept her warm and also thanks to reacher Ambre van de Berg by keeping her warm with some challenging poses.
After a long cold and windy weather we are open again! Yesterday we celebrated this very first day of spring and the opening with a fun sup tour around the beach! Still getting ready for the season and getting our floating sup studio ready. We are so happy to see have seen you all again and share this super fun night on the water together. Also huge than you's to ZHIK for the new wetsuits, Glogglz for the sunglasses and waterproof cases, Island Tribe for the sunscreens, Lifeproof for saving my iPhone and Blijburg for being such a lovely place to be!
