Travel Thursday | Sand Boarding



Sand boarding was tough, don't even dare to imagine snow boarding.



The first time I went to Perth in 2005, none of my friends was interested with adventurous activities. And as usual I was craving for one, obviously god love me and I got a free trip to Perth in November the same year! YEAY!!!!!

During our Free & Easy day, I insisted and persuaded Grace to accompany me to take up this Pinnacle and Sand Dune day package. The trip took us 4-5 hours per way, despite it was long & tiring drive, I was fully entertained by the beautiful scenery.

Upon reaching the sand dune, surf board was at stand-by mode for everyone to try out. What else can I say.... Weeeeeeeeeeee........ Whoooosh.....

The annoying thing was, the journey down to 20 seconds, but the climb up....ARGH!!!!! 15mins.


Have your tried any form of "boarding"?

NO! boarding school doesn't count! Hehhehee.....

I have done sand dune riding at a place called Moreton Island here in Australia. It was so much fun and I would definitely do it again. x

I would think sand boarding would be more painful than snow boarding. But perhaps I feel that way because we have much more snow than sand around here.

Lily Riani said...

gracie,

oh! which part of OZ is this? perhaps i can go there as well :D

george,

the bad part is actually the sand gets into your eyes and you skin/shoe feels sandy. but then again the ice will be cold and you will get wet. sigh.... fun thing doesnt come easy.

Looks like great fun. I never tried it ... The first time I saw sandboards was in Brasil. The speed wasn't so fast as on snow. I think I prefer carving skies downhill on snow :o)

Sand boarding sounds more dangerous than Snow boarding to me.

And if you fall, you might end up eating sand. Yucks! Haha.

Lily Riani said...
