A beautifull autumn sunday. Sunny but fresh with 10 degrees. I went with my son to the Vinkeveense plassen, for a Stand Up Paddle board session.
I was able to borrow a Starboard Race SUP 12,6 model 2011 and Martijn de Man himself was standing up on a Fanatic Race Fly 12,5 model 2011.

The water out there at Vinkeveen is so very clear that you can see the bottum almost everywhere upto 4-5 metres deep. There were not much fishes were i was at.. I think the cold weather had something to do with it. All Fish moved to deeper waters.. In the summer months it will be different im sure.
My son was able to go on my custom malibu waveboard.
I only have a paddle from a little inflatable toyboat, but my son managed it well.
We had lots of fun paddling around on the stand ups.
So much fun that it ll be an interesting sport to do for next season. More TOW Time on water.. is always nice!
So one of these months i have to get myself a SUP and 2 good paddles.
Martijn brought 2 oval carbon paddles. the brand/type i forgot, but they were felt nice.
Cruising around with the Gopro.
As you can see on the nose of Martijn's the board, the wellknown Pink Elephant, Casa Rosso Amsterdam RLD. ahummm... 8-)
cruising with my son :-)
Here below some more gopro shots from todays session;
Martijn and my son on the SUP having fun
My surf/sup buddy Martijn de Man.. Hopefully next season aswell on a Wave SUP.
Switching race SUPS. From a Starboard race to a fanatic Fly race.
they're both really nice tour sups, but have to say that the fanatic had a much better glide though. Probably because of the narrow canoe nose.
The little 5km trip me, martijn and my son made :-)
S-UP to the next session!
