SUPER FUN PADDLE IN THE AMSTERDAM MANGROVES

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! 

Photoshoot with Ryan Salm on the Amsterdam canals

A couple of weeks ago Ryan Salm from www.ryansalmphotography.com send us an email asking if it was possible to do a fun shoot of paddlers in the Amsterdam canals. Off course! We agreed that a super early morning paddle will be fun as Amsterdam wakes up we will be paddle through the waking up city. The bad thing is that when we meet weather is real bad, rain is pouring and it is cold but... we had a great morning  paddle and fun with Ryan and his 'home made' raincoat :) Thanks and we look forward to the pictures we took at the famous Seven Bridges. 

M&M SUP part of SUP CLUB Holland

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.
