For many years now you see RIBs in Holland. Not on the lakes in Friesland or elswhere. But on the Waddenzee, het IJsselmeer, de Oosterschelde, de Westerschelde, de North Sea. De big rivers like de Waal, Merwede, etc. You won't find them where most of the people 'do' their watersports.
I'm in RIBbing for 10 years now and take my boat all over Europe. From de Mediterrarean Sea to the North Sea. Met a lot of enthousiasts from all countries.
We have meetings, go out camping, organise trips, even to the Ribex.
You wan't recognise RIBbers in the streets, you have to look for them and one day you'll find them..
I went for RIBbing because I'd like to go on the water all of the time. And not just when the weather lets me.
