I've never even heard of sandboarding before, but it sounds like fun, and a lot warmer than snowboarding. I would have thought it would be more difficult to find the room to do it though, what with all the people on the beach.
Aah Bryony, it's not done 'on the beach' per se. You go to where there're high, steep Sandhills, like Stradbroke Island, & 'surf' down them.
Only problem is you've got to trudge back to the top again! Lol!
We had a blast at Carlo Sandblow at Rainbow Beach- if you never heard of sandboarding check out the video of us wiping out on the dunes here. [http://www.weekendnotes.com/carlo-sandblow-rainbow-beach/ Sandboarding at Carlo Sandblow]
Yes. I had a blast on a Queensland holiday sandboarding on Tangalooma Island. It's a real workout climbing up the sand dunes but for anyone who likes the feeling of speeding down a hill with the sun pelting down on them, this is the ultimate!
