Less than half an hour outside of the city, Sandboarding in Cape Town takes you to the dunes of Atlantis for an adventure that can only be described as unbelievably amazing.
It’s a little bit like snowboarding, and in fact the sport is done using a snowboard. But instead of icy cold snow, you get to soar over pure white sands as you navigate the ups and downs of the Western Cape sand dunes. Simply put – this is adventure sporting like it is meant to be enjoyed… crazy, fast and oh-so-thrilling!
Even if you have never been on any sort of board before, you can learn how to get started thanks to the expert help provided by your guide. All equipment is designed to provide optimal safety, with proper bindings that add more stability and security. If you are not in the best shape, you may find this very challenging.
You can get a group of friends together for a sandboarding group session, or go on your own and make some new friends. Whatever the case, this is something that every adventure-seeker should try at least once.
