Canal Parade 2013: Flyboarding and More

I didn’t make the trip to Amsterdam this year for the annual Canal Parade, but by all accounts, it was a great success. The Armed Forces had a boat in the Parade, and the Minister of Defense was on board with five of her Generals. The Minister for Emancipation (from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science) also had her own boat and she was also taking part. The Parade was opened by two Flyboarding cowboys – something I’ve not seen before…

I have to say that the trick of flying through the air into the water and back out again looks pretty spectacular…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    The flyboarding is moving forward in technology. The last time I saw that it was a big rig, now it really does look like a skateboard sized pad. wow!

    Looks like a lot of people were there! Good to see it
