Since there are spectacular canal systems and scenic beaches in and around the city, Amsterdam offers a plethora of water activities where you can embrace the wind and the chilling waves while enjoying the best water sport experience. Additionally, it would be better if you choose any private Amsterdam tour guide, especially if you are a first timer in the city. Some of the best wind water sports that you can enjoy during your Amsterdam tours, are given below.
Nothing can beat the feeling of huge waves under your feet and chilling wind on your face. One of the best water sports that you can do in Amsterdam if you want to experience this amazing feeling, is windsurfing. There are also many surfing schools in the city, where you can take lessons in both surfing and windsurfing. You can also buy the essential equipment from these schools. Furthermore, if you are a beginner, summer is the best time to start, as the waves will be pleasant and calm. For pros, the best time will be spring and autumn, as you can do a faceoff with the turbulent waves then.
Kitesurfing has become one of the popular water sports currently, especially in the Netherlands. There are many beaches in and around Amsterdam that are sure to give you the best kitesurfing experience in your life. This is actually a better impressive and exciting version of windsurfing. The only difference is that you have to use a kite here, instead of sailing. The main advantage of kitesurfing is the exhilaratingly high jumps and the unbelievable maneuvers they make possible. However, you cannot enjoy this to the fullest without proper skills and hence, it is better to take classes first.
Stand Up Paddling (SUP)
This is a relatively new water sport, and has evolved into one of the best of its kind. In this sport, you will have to stand upright on a surfing board and paddle. Even though summertime is best for beginners, SUP will not be exciting if you do not fall into the sea a couple of times. There is no special training needed for this, and you will get all the equipment for this from one of the surfing schools.
