Amsterdam Light & Night paddle

Wow we had such a great night yesterday! You came from all over Holland to join this very special paddle by night. Due to the amount of people we got a limited permit and were only allowed to paddle the Amstel river. But still this was great fun and next to the Light Festival objects along the route we got to see lot's of Christmas lights, decoration and actually felt like being part of the Light Festival wearing our headlights and lights on board.

 

We always love sharing the love for paddle boarding and our beautiful city that actually looks even more beautiful by night!

Great week at Bonaire!

We are just back from the best week ever at Bonaire. A week filled with yoga at the Windhoek pooldeck, paddle boarding trips at the Mangrove, sunset sessions, wake boarding, snorkelling and lot's and lot's of laughter. Even though there was a lack of wind and kiteboarding was only on for one morning we had a great time and enjoyed every moment of the sunny week! 

As we all like to escape winter and spend some time in the sun while having fun we are organising another sup - yoga - kite week at Bonaire in January again. More info is on our news page. Don't hesitate to contact us for any questions! e hope to welcome you at the sunny island of Bonaire and share the beauty with you on paddle board, kiteboard or during a yoga session on the beach!

SUP and HAP tour Amsterdam

We were so super lucky with the sunny weather yesterday at out first SUP & HAP trial tour. 

With a little group of 10 people we took off at the Secret Chef houseboat at the Eastside of Amsterdam and paddle for about 1.5 hrs before we got back and hit the delicious bites and bubbly wines. The next SUP & HAP will be announced soon and we might organize it on a different 'surprise' location every time. Love to meet you again. 

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! 

Change on our sup schedule

advanced workout .jpg

As we have more and more paddlers at an advanced level and up for some serious training we took out the Follow Up course and changed that into a weekly SUP training. Until the end of season Monday nights 20.00-21.00 are for the SUP fanatics. This training is meant for those who know the technique, can speed up, are not afraid for wind and chop and don't mond getting wet and sweaty. During these trainings we will focus on speed, beach starts, drafting, heart rate and advanced stroke and turns. Super fun to attend and a much better workout then in the gym. If you have your own board attend these sessions with your own paddle board if not we have boards you can use.

 

 

Photoshoot with Ryan Salm on the Amsterdam canals

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.

SUP at the Urban Sports Week Amsterdam

Last week Amsterdam was filled up with all kinds of Urban Sports throughout the city and M&M SUP filled up the waterpart. We organized a fun Friday Night paddle with a couple of friends and paddlers we have known for some time and Sunday we offered free clinics at the venue. 

13124555_1183113411712043_2314457380790162253_n.jpg

The perfect way to show Amsterdam is a great city for all kinds of urban sports by using what the city offers, for free running, wakeboarding, skateboarding and stand up paddling is also one of the best activities as we have so many canals we can use freely and enjoy and explore the city in a different way. Also interested in exploring the canals on a paddle board? We offer some tours, for a canal tour we do ask some stand up paddle experience or recommend to attend at least two classes., The Amsterdam canals can be very busy with boats and water traffic which means you need to be able to steer, stop, turn and be able to control yourself on the board. 

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.
