Duneboarding is an exhilarating board sport which is done while in Swakopmund, Namibia. It is a recreational activity that takes place on the sand dunes of the Namib dessert. The Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, houses some of the largest sand dunes on this planet. There is no better way to experience these wonders in an environmentally friendly way, than to zoom down them head first on a traditional Swakopmund sand board.
There are 2 styles of sand boarding:
Lie down - For the lying down style you use a specially polished board to slide headfirst down a dune. Speeds of up to 80km/h can be reached.
Stand-up - For the standing-up style, you use standard snowboarding equipment and you 'surf' your way down the dunes.
