Fierljeppen: A Northern-Holland sport
Ultimate Lego presents: Fierljeppen! My first project with landscaping!
About this creation
This is my entry for the "N.L.F. nederlandse cultuur contest"(N.L.F. Dutch culture contest). It is a landscape with a small river (I don't have any other naming for it) and a person who is "Fierljepping". There are also 2 spectators viewing the jump over the "river". Further there are some landscape details inserted. This is my first landscape! Don't blame me too hard!

Fierljeppen(in Dutch) is popular in Friesland, a provence in Northern-Holland.

Now to the pictures:



Fierljeppen is a very hard sport and harder than it looks! Mostly you are coming home with a wet suit! This guy is making it to the overside. lucky boy.



A lot of planting. (Yes, in the place I went, there were a lot of plants. free spots are rare there!)



Also tubing isn't rare here.

This was it already! Just rate and comment!

Ik zie het al (dom van me), Fierljeppen is over een riviert en polsstokhoogspringen over een hoog "ding"

Is er een verschil tussen Fierljeppen en polsstokhoogspringen (ik heb geen idee of dat goed gespeld is)?

Fierljeppen (lit. far-leaping) is a traditional sport of the Frisians and of the Dutch, and one of the more complex athletic sports known to date. Ljeppen is West Frisian for "to leap" in English. The sport involves a long pole and a body of water. The pole is between 3 and 5 m long and has a flat round plate at the bottom to prevent it from sinking into the muddy river or canal bottom. A jump consists of an intense sprint to the pole (polsstok), jumping and grabbing it, then climbing to the top of the pole while trying to control its forward and lateral movements over a body of water, and finishing with a graceful landing on a sand bed opposite to the starting point. Because of all the diverse skills required in fierljeppen, fierljeppers are considered to be very complete athletes with superbly developed strength and coordination. The sport is believed to have originated with farmers who used poles to leap over small water drainage channels to access different plots of land. In East Frisia this sport is known as Pultstock-Jumping. Today the sport is primarily practiced for fun or to entertain tourists, but there still is an official annual Nationale Fierljep Manifestation (NMF) in the Netherlands, and championships are contested in six leagues and numerous clubs.

Tsja, je hebt wel gelijk over dat Lego Digital Designer, maar ik heb gewoon heel weinig Lego van dat soort, want ik heb alleen maar Technic, dus LDD is de enige uitweg. Sorry!
