Buffeted by the predominantly south-west winds, the slopes and slipfaces of the dunes between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are ideal for sandboarding.

With an altitude of up to 120 metres, sandboarders can accelerate to speeds of up to 80 km/h on the high dunes.

Tuition is provided by operators offering sandboarding. Depending on individual skills and balance, sandboarding can be done either by lying down, sitting, or standing on the board.

Numerous operators provide boarding activities or equipment for hire. Individuals who have no previous experience are advised to use the services of a guide, as boarding, like any other adventure activity, has an element of danger.
