What happend in the first period of 2015
MountaineeringTradeshow - CanyonStore.nl had a good tradeshow day at the Mountaineering Day from the Dutch Climbing and Mountaineering Association on 15 March to present the beautiful watersport in the mountains. The Dutch mountaineers and sportclimbers are getting more and more known with the "new" branch called Canyoning. Impressed by all the specialized gear and knowledge you need as canyoneer we had to answer a lot of questions about the sport. Which we did with pleasure. Looking forward to the next tradeshow in 2016!
New gear - A lot of new products came in store for canyoning and caving, to much to describe them all. In the sectionnew products you can see and read about a couple of these new items.
Expedition Sponsorship - CanyonStore.nl sponsored the NZ Canyoning Expedition team which explored the whole month March for new canyons on the Southern Island. More about the results of this expedition can be read on their website https://nzcanyoningexpedition.wordpress.com/. A couple of photos to get a short impression of their expedition:
Canyoning Guide Course - In association with the Dutch Canyoning Association CanyonStore owner Gertjan van Pelt organized a Basic Canyon Guide Course in Austria mid April. The course was a succces with 4 new Basic Canyon Guides and one Basic Canyoneer.
