It starts at the absolute basic level and works a little bit up to some more advanced steps.
Still, almost everything is based on the simple cross-step.
No fancy board manipulation or technical wizardry. Just walking on the board.
Board: Simple Platypus, Randal 180's, Orangatang 86a Stimulus
I love this
Love what you do, do what you love. It's simple. It always has been.
An hour of skating with Luutse Brouwer on the Simple Platypus.
Oh yes, spring!
Finally. Spring is here and I already had an amazing session in Amsterdam! It was still a little bit windy that day, but I could skate in my t-shirt! I love spring!

I STILL LOVE THIS
Simple Longboards all started with a video: "I love this". It was shot in an hour with a new board, what would later become the Platypus. Skipping forward 8 months and the Platypus is being shipped all over the world, to places and people I haven't even dreamed of. It's amazing what such a simple video can do.
A couple of days ago I found myself skating alone on this spot. Again, with a camera and a tripod. And I still love this!

Do what you love, love what you do!
"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams. Wandering by lone sea-breakers and sitting by desolate streams." Skating through the wasted land of Amsterdam. The abandoned buildings and empty streets. Where everything seems forgotten and all is lost, it seems.
