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.

BOGA YOGA video from Germany blogger Linderella

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. 

New BOGA Paddleboards arrived!

Yeah, this is one of the best moments in season. Opening and unloading a container filled with fresh BOGA boards! Always fun to open all these boxes filled with BOGA isups, hard tops, new models and send them out to all happy people who have been waiting for their new boards all winter!off course we also keep enough boards in stock to make more people happy :) Check out the new line up at our site http://www.mm-sup.com/morenemm-bogaboards-com/

M&M SUP re seller Glogglz sunglasses and Glogglz waterproof cases

We fell in love with the Glogglz sunglasses last season and are proud to announce we became official re seller of this good looking water sports brand! What makes these sunglasses special is that they are the only patent water resistant sunglasses that go underwater and perform like a goggle! Add the fun looking models and colors and you have a sunglass everyone paddling in summer time must wear! The Glogglz sunglasses are also offering 100% UV protection and provide superior glare reduction. Makes us even happier as we spend many hours on and in the water in the season.

As we spend so many hours on our paddle boards we like to have some stuff with us; such as an iPhone, money/creditcard, keys and some other personal belongings. These all fit in the colorful Glogglz waterproof cases which we sell in sizes S (fits an iPhone 5) and M (fits an iPhone 6). The best thing about these cases is the leash that is easy to attach on your board rack or leg leash which prevents the case from falling in the water and sinking :( 

Come check out the colorful Glogglz sunglasses and/or cases while going for a paddle tour, class or sup yoga session.

HISWA SUP TOUR IN AMSTERDAM ORGANIZED BY M&M SUP

1594_1152634721426579_1004961590353749683_n.jpg

For the fourth time M&M SUP and Hans Schouten organized the HISWA SUP tour for the HOSWA boat show. This year we changed the route and started in the city centre at Hannekes Boom and paddled with about 150 paddlers to the HISWA boat show. The racers started ten minutes before the tour. We paddled in the canals and saw lot's of Amsterdam highlights like the Carré, Red Light district, zeven bridges, Magere Brug. It was a super fun and colorful parade on paddle boards. Hopefully we will kick of the SUP season like this again! 

Meet Deborah Hoeks our Amsterdam sup & yoga instructor

1017467_675487489131037_2083196596_n.jpg

Deborah attended a paddle tour in Amsterdam with M&M SUP back in 2013 and directly afterwards she contacted us to ask about possibilities to teach yoga on a paddleboard. Off course! She started teaching in 2014 and we love her energy and the way she combines a stand up paddle class with yoga and let's every one float around while practicing yoga. As a busy mom of two little guys she will not be teaching on a weekly base and probably organize some sup yoga Friday nights and perhaps we will also continue the three week sup yoga series once the water and temperatures go up! We are always enjoying having her around as she can pop into a hand or head stand any moment and love reaching others challenging poses on the BOGA YOGA paddle boards. 


Sun protection from Island Tribe available at M&M SUP

As we spend lot's of time on the water this season we need to protect our skin and lips. something you often forget and while being on the water you can burn badly. That's why we are offering some Island Tribe products at M&M SUP this season. Founder Carlo tells something more about Island Tribe: "We chose for Island Tribe as they are especially developed for watersports and lasts longer while spending time in and on the water. the sunscreens are developed and researched in Australia and South Africa to ensure that the formula really works.  Island Tribe sunscreens are designed to give the user maximum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, more than this, the specific formula will stay on your skin for the duration of your activity."

Thats exactly what we need as we do not want to have to apply new sunscreen and get our hands so slippery we can't hold our paddles anymore. 


 

Meet our happy su(p)per instructor Danielle Nieuwelink

10317812_10152158288632477_7412556556498645353_o.jpg

Danielle attended one of the last classes in 2014 and fell in love with paddle boarding immediately. As a kid she used to sail races and spend all her weekends and holidays on the water. With paddle boarding she re-found her love for watersports and bought herself a BOGA board to keep on paddling during the fall and winter months. She also became a close friend and in spring we decided she could start teaching start up classes, as a former ski instructor in America she knows hoe to teach an motivate. We are so happy to have her on board. By now Danielle has her ASI level 1 and 2, Functional Paddling certification and last winter she attended a yoga for surfers course with Peggy Hall in San Clemente which means you can also meet her during one of our SUP & YOGA classes this summer. Danielle teaches the start up and follow up classes every monday night and whenever she has some extra time she attends the tours and events.

Danielle is also a member of team BOGA Europe and has attended the SUP 11 CITY team in Team Boga in 2014 and in 2015 she paddled the last stage on her Typhoon 14' team board. 

Meet our M&M SUP crew! Kick of with sup yoga teacher Ambre

Ambre took her sup and yoga masterclass course with Rachel Brathen (a.k.a. @yoga_girl) and BOGA YOGA brand ambassador. Ambre fell in love with this way of practicing yoga and contacted us immediately and has been part of our team since season 2015. We are happy to have her on board again.

Ambre explains what her classes look like: "What do we do during a sup yoga class? We bring power, balance and an overload of fun together during this unique practice of yoga. During the course the boards will be anchored to prevent drifting off and to complete the course without worrying. Yoga helps you to relax, not to get stressed ;)"

Pre spring deal BOGA soft top 11' allround paddle board

The BOGA soft top boards are super fun to ride and look good. They work well on flat water, for yoga and have enough rocker to catch some small waves and ride the ocean. Soft tops are less fragile then the regular epoxy or carbon boards so it's makes a perfect family board. Park it in your garden on your terrace or boat and enjoy the board all season long.
