Extreme sports are getting more and more popular each day. Sand surfing, also known as sandboarding, is one of the newest extreme sports discovered in the search for adrenaline. Be ready to kick up some dust with sandboarding on the great sand dunes of the world.
Sand surfing is a sport of balance like surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding. The difference between these board sports and sand surfing is the environment. It is done prevalently in deserts and coastal areas. It’s birthplace is Egypt and since then it became popular in the countries that have deserts or beaches with sand dunes. Surfing on the sand sounds fun but it has its difficulties. It is hard to build a ski lift for participants to go up on the sand dunes easily.
Sand surfing doesn’t require much equipment. A board is the main equipment. Sandy surface is much different than snow, so it is hard to glide on the sand with snowboards. For this reason, sandboards are built out of special materials like laminex or formica. Sandboard has a much harder base than the snowboard and a paraffin-based wax is used to have a better glide on the sand.Sand surfing locations generally have hot weather conditions.
Summer clothes (light colored) are suitable to wear during sand surfing. Sunglasses are necessary and on windy days goggles are recommended, which we have for rent as well. Don't forget your sunscreen, bug repellant during the flow of Medano Creek and most of all, bring lots of water. It is very important to stay hydrated while playing on the dunes.
We ask that you don't ride the boards on wet sand, it will damage the base very quickly. You will be charged for excessive wear and tear on the boards. We would rather have you return the equipment and get a refund, then wreck the boards and incur the cost.
Please don't ride across the rocks at the base of the dunes, drag them behind your vehicle, use them as skim boards, or cause other obvious damage, you will be charged for repairs up to the cost of the board.
