Here’s another article on the hot, literally, new sport of sandboarding, which is all the rage in Namibia where the dunes are tall and the safety regulations are, well, non-existent. One comapny running these trips is called Alter-Action. Created by Chris Jason and Beth Sarro in 1994, the company is the first professional sandboarding operation on the Namibian Coast. They say they have found the “perfect” sandboarding dune – a “star dune with six different faces and a towering height of 100 meters”. Sweet.
Besides supplying the equipment – including a helmet, gloves, elbow and knee pads – Alter Action provides transportation to and from local hotels, instruction, lunch and drinks for around $35 per person.
Sounds like a duneload of fun…but what about those nasty scrapes when you fall. Can you say raspberry?
