No snow? No swell? No problem. Board riding down sand dunes is a whole new world of adventure.
Board riders of all persuasions are sure to enjoy sandboarding. Developed from snowboarding, the technique is similar, but the environment couldn't be more different. Take a lesson and give it a go. If standing up seems a bit scary (you do pick up speed quickly!) you can ride the board sitting down.
Some operators will take you to the dunes via boat, incorporating a scenic river cruise to ease you into the adrenaline fest. Most of the dunes where board riding happens are near the beach or the river – great for a quick dip afterwards to remove the sand that will more than likely be everywhere.

A soft, fluffy landing. If you take a tumble at speed, you'll know all about it.
