New indoor funsport event in RAI Amsterdam
Fun-packed programme of surfing, wakeboarding, SUPing and BMX demonstrations and try-outs
At last there is a dedicated indoor event for all beginning, expert or returning kite, wind and wave surfers, wakeboarders, skimboarders, SUPers, BMXers and skateboarders. RAI Amsterdam will host the first edition of the Funsports Xperience from Wednesday 8 to Sunday 12 March. Taking place at the same time as the HISWA Amsterdam Boat Show, the event will feature a wealth of demos, try-outs, team riders, new products and great offers. Entry is free for visitors aged 16 and under.
Watch and join in
“The Funsports Xperience is an event for people of all ages,” says organiser Gert Jan Roos from RAI Amsterdam. “We aim to create an accessible yet spectacular event that appeals to beginners, experts and returning funsport enthusiasts alike. All funsports can be watched and tried during the Funsports Xperience. Professionals will be demonstrating the latest tricks, while experienced instructors are available for visitors who would like to try the activities themselves. These include testing their wave surfing skills on the wavesurfer, going wakeboarding, windsurfing or SUPing in the Pepsi Max Pool, practicing jumps on the Kite Simulator and longboarding, skating or BMXing in the Landsport Area.”
People who want to take things a little easier can visit the Telstar Surfclub or test their balance on one of the slacklines, which resembles cord dancing, only on a slacker line. The Waterski Simulator and Jump Simulator, including bounceboards, offer a dynamic experience, while Samsung’s Virtual Reality Simulator allows visitors to enjoy an incredibly detailed 360-degree insight of how it feels to windsurf in the bay of Rio de Janeiro.
