Sandboarding – Sand Surfing
SIT AND SLIDE!
STAND AND SURF!
Take an adventure on the largest moving sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere! On our Sandboarding Safari you will travel across the magnificent sand dunes in one of our purpose-built 4WDs to our Sandboarding area, right in the heart of the dunes! Here we have a shaded picnic area with tables and chairs, feel free to bring your food and drinks!
First of all, one of our friendly instructors will meet you and instruct you in the safe method of sandboarding for both the sit down and stand up types. Our dune starts out with small slopes and continues on to the monster slope!
You choose the size of the hill based on your confidence level. Sand Boarding is suitable for all ages. Toddlers and young children can ride on a board with an adult or tackle the slopes themselves once they are confident. All Instructors are certified in First Aid, and supervise for the duration of your stay.
Do you have family members who wish to go along to the dunes but not do the sandboarding? No Problem! They can still go for the ride for a small fee.
We use our hand made sand boards for all types of sand boarding including the stand up. In addition, we also have sandboards with bindings, for those who are accustomed to surfing and snowboarding, for those extra thrills!
4WD Bus departs 9.30am during summer and 10am in winter, and every 15-20 minutes after that for the rest of the day. It works like a shuttle service, Stay and play as long as you like, and when you are ready to go back to the meeting point, just hop on the next bus!
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEATHER CONDITIONS
We are a small family run business that does not cater to the inbound tour market (big tourist buses that visit the dunes daily). This means we have the choice and flexibility to close our operations if we consider the weather to be unsafe and/or uncomfortable for sand boarding. The main weather safety hazard on the dunes is extreme heat. Our sand is very reflective due to its high silica content and on a hot day can amplify the temperatures to well over 50 degrees centigrade. We will generally open in the morning on a hot day and close around midday or whenever it becomes too hot. We will also close during very windy conditions, torrential rain and electrical storms.
The most ideal conditions for sand boarding are cool days, after rain or during light showers. The wet sand is ideal for sliding on as its nice and smooth and go go faster! If you are unsure whether conditions are suitable please feel free to give us a call as actual weather conditions can vary significantly from forecast!
In summary, we take our duty of care to our staff and customers very seriously. We also want you to thoroughly enjoy your experience on the dunes. If we wouldn’t send our own family up into the dunes, we won’t send yours either!
