Two weeks ago there was a SUP race in the canals of the Dutch town Edam (near Volendam). I used the RRD Cruiser 12'0, which didn't help me to win the race against the guys...But next time there will be a race I'm in! But then only against the girls, wow, you need some power to paddle 1.5 km.
It was really good fun. See attached some pictures of the idyllic route in the small canals.
