Sandboarding in the Namib Desert

Sandboarding in the
Namib Desert

There's something about the wobble, wobble, crash of sandboarding down the huge dunes of the Namib Desert of Namibia. A kick that requires some expertise, but guarantees a lot of clammy sweat and fun.

Race down the dunes and experience the thrill of your life.

At Swakopmund, surrounded by sand dunes, you get ready for the descent of a lifetime. On top of a sandboard you zoom down at almost 80 km/h. From 100 meters high you plunge down the dune, while you let go of resistance and try to stay straight. What a blast!

No, you will never get bored in the Namib Desert, for sure. Sandboarding is becoming increasingly popular and this unique setting, not far from the Atlantic Ocean, is just perfect for it. In the meantime the number of companies who organize this fun experience in this 150 km wide desert has considerable increased. Choose a reliable party and get a decent instructor. After all, sandboarding may be exciting, but not entirely without risk. If you have no experience with skating, wake or snowboarding, be sure to heed the advice given by your instructor.

“Roaring down the slopes of an imposing sand dune on top of a small plank. I thought I was never going to make it, but it wasn't too bad. An adrenaline rush in a very unique setting.”
