As you disembark the river cruise boat you step directly onto the sand beach at the foot of the dune.A huge advantage of this cruise is the fact that there is no need to walk huge distances carrying equipment and your kit.If you are an outdoor adventure adrenaline junky then this is the tour for you! Enjoy magnificent and breathtaking surroundings and spectacular dunes for an awesome sandboarding experience. In fact this is the cruise for anyone looking for fun in the sun.The sand is fine and fast and best in low wind and offshore NW wind conditions. Dunes are perfectly shaped for the fast, more experienced boarder as well as gentle slopes for beginners.Largely similar to snowboarding, sandboarding is the art of standing with two feet locked onto a thin tensile board and sliding or carving arcs down a dune.The best part about sandboarding is that it is easy to learn while having tons of fun. It is a very accessible, four-season activity that does not require a huge investment in cold-weather gear – all you need are boots, bindings and a board!
