PULLKA premiere on the beaches of Zeeland

PULLKA premiere on the beaches of Zeeland

Cadzand beach has some special premieres on Sunday morning the 6th and Wednesday evening 9th of May. For the first time in history there will be PULLKA sessions in Zeeland, the beautiful province in the southwest of the Netherlands. The sessions will start from and are in close cooperation with Moio Beach in Cadzand-Bad. The new Moio Beach is the meeting point for sportfanatics along the coast of Zeeland.

Youth memories to the ‘mindful’ beach

PULLKA founder Diederik Veerman has special memories to the beaches where the sessions will take place. Veerman: “For many years, the current location of Moio Beach was the spot for another beach club; The First Wave. As a teenager I worked there during summer. The most beautiful part was early in the morning when I was completely alone on the beach to prepare everything for the new day. The sand was still a bit chilly, the smell was lovely, the beach still quiet and I had the sea for my own. ‘Absolutely mindfulness’ we would say nowadays…Without no doubt these moments enhanced my predilection for the beach. It’s really so cool to come back to Cadzand, this with and thanks to PULLKA!”

Times and practical info

  • Sunday morning, May 6th : 10 AM till 11:30 AM
  • Wednesday evening, May 9th: 20 PM till 21:30 PM

Both will departure and return at Moio Beach, Vlamingpolderweg 3A, Cadzand.

PULLKA will take care for all the needed equipment like the pulk, poles and rig. Everyone who’s able to walk actively for 90 minutes is very welcome to join and try PULLKA. Participants only need supple (sport) cloths, run-in walking or running shoes and something to drink during the exercise. The costs are € 15 per participant. Per session there’s place for maximum twelve people. To join, send an email to info@pullka.com.

The Kniphorst forest is a nature reserve and the only archaeological reservation in The Netherlands. Surrounded by 'hunebedden', ancient grave sites, and prehistoric gravemounds, participants became acquainted with PULLKA, inspired by an ancient way of transport: sledding!

On Saturday October 7th I went into the dunes of the Hague with three test persons (kind of guinea pigs). This for the first real PULLKA session. For 7000 years the sledge was used as a mean of transport; carrying goods from A to B. From now on, using the ‘pulk’ is also a training method. And we don’t need snow for this! To celebrate this historic moment, we were treated on winds of 7 Beaufort by Mother Earth…
