What do you have in common with CrazySocks? Before I was allowed to come to CrazySocks, I got to know very nice people at the various SUP events, whose presence I was able to fully enjoy every time, because they accept and take everyone as they are, regardless of performance, and can then promote something athletically. What two of these CrazySocks have brought to life and formed a team for it and I am allowed to be there as it grows makes me proud and connects me very much. The spirit is great!
