… but exhausted, too. The rolling weekend was successful: 16 hours in 2 swimming pools, 50 Dutch kayakers busy with Greenland-style rolling inspired by Freya Hoffmeister. Individual Euro-style rollers experiencing a different slow-motion approach, coaches getting acquainted with other ways of teaching, qayaqunderground discovering new concepts, and all having a lot of fun: it was great to see all those people leaving the sessions with a big smile on their face.
Here are the first impressions. More extensive reports and pictures follow soon
Thanks to the crew, that made this to a success:
Freya and her assistants Gerard, Nico, Govert and Sien.
Ton and Dick with the qajaqs, tuiliks and paddles of Qajaq.nl
Axel for all!
The Alphense Kanovereniging de Kromme Aar for the hospitality
Tip of the day:
.. don’t forget to drink when you spent your days in a indoor swimming pool! Though you are standing in the water, dehydration goes on. So you should drink a lot of water. I forgot this (at least did not enough), resulting in a bloody headache afterwards. Grrr…. I shouldn't only know, but also do better ;-(
