Stand Up Paddle

Sunday May 1


Another way to explore Amsterdam is by stand up paddling through the canals. On Friday night a 7.5 km SUP tour is organised, with start and finish at the Westergasfabriek. There are 15 boards available for people who want to join, but you are also welcome to bring your own board. Bringing a wetsuit is recommended, as the water is still pretty cold. Some previous SUP experience is required.
