Morene joins NSP as an accomplished long-distance paddler and engaged waterwoman who loves to explore the waterways of the Netherlands, alone or together with M & M clients from M&M SUP Amsterdam. Coming from a background in journalism, she made the change from working indoors to outdoors and hasn’t looked back since.
So anyone looking to check out Amsterdam from a perspective unlike any other in the city; give Morene a ping to see when the next tour or event is planned.
“I started paddling my local canals in 2008 and opened the first sup school in Amsterdam in 2011, M&M SUP Amsterdam. In 2010 I attended the 11 city tour for the first time with a team and paddled that race 4 times since, securing two 1st places as a team. I’ve also done the 11 city race alone three times and became Dutch champion back in 2012 in the 12’6 class.”
The Netherlands is made for SUP
With the majority of the country being completely flat, cities, towns and roads are often connected by waterways.
Amsterdam and some of the other cities like Haarlem, Utrecht and Leiden stand out with their canal structures. Tourists will often book a tour on one of the many canal boats. These circular structures offer a unique view of the city and exploring these very old canals by SUP is a great way to get to know the Dutch and their waterways on your terms and at your speed.
