The landlocked region of Gauteng in South Africa does not have any coastal dunes, but it is still possible to practice sand surfing at Mount Mayhem mine dumps, located in Boksburg about half a hour drive from Johannesburg and just outside of Benoni.

Sandboarding at Mt. Mayhem – Boksburg

The closest sandboarding spot to Johannesburg is Mt. Mayhem, situated in Boksburg, just outside of Benoni and about a 30 minute drive from Joburg.

Mt. Mayhem is not a real mountain, but rather a mine dump and leftover site of an ancient gold mine.
