Very satisfied....

Evening workshop with NKB-seakayak Coaches

… 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

Sien assisting Freya on the Clinics at Saturday

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
Axel for all!
The Alphense Kanovereniging de Kromme Aar for the hospitality

The Saturday-crew having dinner in Freya’s camper. Chinese food before a rolling class…

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 ;-(

Indeed a great clinic Hans! As an attender I'm more than satisfied with all the new techniques I've learned.
Thank you all for this wonderful opportunity.
