Sandboarding in Dubai !
Sandboarding in Dubai is similar to snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing. Sandboarding involves riding across the dunes while standing on sand board.
The outdoor sand boarding activity is very famous in the desert area, especially in Dubai, Qatar, and Egypt. If you are located near big dunes, and the dunes have silky sand must try it.
Sandboarding is not something new, and it’s a lost art. Centuries ago, Egyptians used wood planks to slide down from big dunes and move heavy cargo across the desert.
