These guys were wonderful, they allowed us to change the date of our sand boarding excursion at the very last minute, and were super flexible. Also very encouraging. We got to do both sandboarding upright as well as laying down, which was fun to try...More

I've never snowboarded before but the guides explained everything so well that sandboarding wasn't hard at all. I would really recommend it! In fact, I'd come all the way back to swakopmund just to do it again, even though walking up the dunes gets pretty...More

This activity is a must if you are up for some fun. We simply made our reservation and hotel pickup, all of the gear, a video documenting the day and a meal were all included.

Hi Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to review us. You must be very fit to say the trip was too short. Most people can't walk up the dune more often and that's why we run our trips not too long. But I am...More

Me and my two kids (aged 9 and 11) did the lie-down boarding with these guys. Perhaps you could be concerned that this kind of action-packed activity would be haphazardly organized by a bunch of happy-go-lucky daredevils. Nothing could be further from the truth though,...More

This is an absolute blast, but be forewarned...you do have to hike up the dunes. We went sandboarding in Peru one time and there were dune buggies that drove us up the dunes and then we boarded down. Since this is a national park/protected area,...More

Sandboarding is so much fun and I wasn't even good at it. My husband and sons snowboard, so of course we had to try the stand-up sandboarding, which is better than snowboarding because falling in sand doesn't hurt. We also got to try lie-down boarding...More
