Vondelsurfing with Milan was the highlight of our trip! Although we had no prior experience longboarding Milan was patient with us and taught us well. Had a blast vondelsurfing in the beautiful park and lovely Amsterdam weather. He was also very welcoming and we had a good time getting to know him. Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a chill, relaxing and fun activity in Amsterdam!
Longboarding with Milan was actually ‘a walk in the park’! We were both a bit excited about getting on a longboard but Milan’s super relaxed attitude was very helpful. Because there are no hills in Amsterdam he took us for a spin with a rope behind his bike (there are enough of those in Amsterdam). Not only did he teach us to longboarding. We were also introduced into the world of start-ups and building apps. We were addicted at once and now considering to buy a board and take some more lessons with Milan. It was a great way to enjoy the park and the sunshine. And to shine as a true hipster yourself of course... all captured on photo and film by Milan’s friend Thomas who also came round. Afterwards we went to the Blue tea house where we enjoyed a great apple pie to celebrate a great day and a new hobby.
For me as a first timer on a longboard it was great! Made me realise you don't really have to be an experienced longboarder to have fun with Milan on this acitivity. Nice guy with a reassuring attitude. I can advise this to anyone who likes to be in the outdoors on a sunday afternoon, gives a fresh swing to the day!
This looked pretty scary, because I have little board experience. But it was great fun and I really enjoyed it! It was a nice sunny autumn day in the Vondelpark and that was just great. Next time tighten the board a bit more so I will standing stable instead of shaking ;)
