What is Sandboarding?

Are you wonder what sandboarding actually is? In the simplest language, it’s like snowboarding; except instead of surfing on snow, you surf on sand.

Sandboarding is a solo adventure sport for adrenaline junkies. For this activity, a specially-designed board is securely fastened to your feet. While on it, you can surf down the beautiful golden dunes of Dubai’s deserts. All you have to do is maintain control and balance while you slide down and around the sand dunes.

What to Expect while Sandboarding in Dubai?

To try sandboarding in Dubai, you would have to opt for a desert safari tour that specifically includes this activity.

Once you reach the desert, you’ll be taken for the different activities included in your ticket. Before the sandboarding experience, your instructor will give you a few pointers on how to stay safe and guidelines to follow. You will also be given a waiver form to sign as a formality. After this, you can put on safety equipment like headgear, elbow and knee pads, and then strap on the sandboard to your shoes. You’re now ready to try your hand at this adrenaline-pumping activity!

After the activity, you will be taken to the campsite where you can participate in other activities like camel riding, quad biking and dune-bashing, and have a wonderful meal to round off your day.
