Morene is the heartbeat of theAmsterdam SUP scene. She runs aSUP school(rentals,lessons, yoga and tours) that introduces locals to the water they live on and around. If you've never been to Amsterdam, put it on your list and be sure to put a paddle through the canals on it with Morene too! It's amazing and we had the opportunity to have 75 other paddlers join us for a charity paddle thanks to Morene and SUP Amsterdam!
