Sandboarding is a boarding Sport similar to the popular Snowboarding.
Sandboarding near Cape Town and Hermanus
It is an awesome recreational activity that takes place on our Large +-230 meter High Sand Dune rather than on a snow covered mountain. This boarding sport has adherents throughout the world, most prevalently in desert areas or coastal areas with beach dunes.
We are very fortunate to have one of Africas Highest Commercial Sand Boarding Dunes a stone throw away from Cape Town in Bettys Bay.
Our guides/s will provide you with training and safety on the dune. Sandboarding is a wonderful activity as its both fun and extreme (depending on your skills as you progress) Once our training session has finished we will start off with a smaller section of the dune. We will progress Higher and Higher up on the dune as your skills improve.
The norm is to stand on the Sandboard as you descend down the dune but if you prefer to rather sit we will show you the ropes as this is also a lot of fun if your balance seems to get the better of you.
Sandboarding is ideal for individuals but also extremely entertaining for larger groups and teambuilding options.
What to wear and bring:
Bottled water is a must as you will get thirsty.
Sunscreen – in summer!!
Comfortable clothes and shoes.
Our Kleinmond Office 5 minutes from the Palmiet River
So our season is about to start on our local Palmiet river – only 1 Hour from Cape Town and 5 Minutes from Kleinmond.
The Rafting is not only one of the most amazing and thrilling experiences you will ever have but also has a natural beauty in the surroundings unlike any other rafting experience.
Considered by many to be the most beautiful of CapeNature’s protected areas, Kogelberg Nature Reserve earns that reputation largely to the fact that it occupies an area with minimal human interference. Its exceptional diversity and quality of fynbos means it is considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The reserve presents perhaps the finest example of mountain fynbos in the Western Cape.
Our Rafting experience on the Palmiet is dictated by the water levels and we use 2 types of Crafts depending on the levels. For bookings phone 083 517 3635
