Sandboarding Locations by Country
Sandboarding Around the World
The best locations for sand surfing are the the hot deserts of South America, Africa and the Middle East – where you can find the tallest and steepest dunes without vegetation. That said, most countries with a coastal area are also suitable for sandboarding: Australia, New Zealand, south Africa and the UK have a lot of great spots where you can practice this sport. Coastal dunes are usually shorter and less steep and better suited for sledding, but sand surfing can be a lot of fun there nonetheless. Even in some continental areas where there are no deserts – such as mainland Europe or Canada – you can find some steep sandhills or artificial sand quarries to slide. You can even practice volcano boarding on a handful of locations worldwide (Nicaragua, Italy, Indonesia, Vanuatu and Japan), sandborading down hardened lava slopes on active volcanos.
