Rolling Classes, Photo Albums, Weblinks and Press releases



Some attendants asked for more pictures of the rolling classes with Freya two weeks ago. I have uploaded some extra photo's to the Picasa webalbum. I discovered a new future of Picasa; clicking on the picture on top of this post gives direct access to the Photo Album.
I am sorry, I haven't got photos of all 52 rollers. And I find it difficult to distinguish the different kayakers in the black tuliuq's...

More reports of this event on the blogs of:
Freya
Axel
René
Freek
And 93 nice pictures of second Sunday-session in the album of:
Bart

It's fun to get so many enthusiast reactions on our first Greenland rolling activity. Guus and Ruud crafted their own Greenland-paddles after the weekend. Yesterday I was at the regular pool-session of the Kayakclub de Kromme Aar, and after a while I had 5 WW- and polokayakers doing butterfly-rolls and hand-rolling in Greenland-style...

I believe it was Heinrich Heine who once said "in the Netherlands everything happens 50 years later". That was more than hundred years ago, and I am sure we came closer to the rest of the world since, but at this Greenland-rolling-thing we are late followers again. Have a look at the blogs of Bonnie, Andrew and Susanita to see what is going on in the pools on the other side of the ocean!

Hello René, I have tried out the code for the direct link, but for some reason it doesn't work...
