The Ultimate Sandboarding Experience in South Africa

Sandboarding in Mossel Bay

Welcome to the world-famous ‘Dragon Dune’ – the biggest and longest sandboard ride in South Africa. Situated on private land, this ‘beast’ provides the ultimate ride on sand, similar to snowboarding. We cater for everyone, corporates, oil sheikhs, beach-bums, school groups, skiers, teambuilding, tour operators and everyone in between.

Although it’s the biggest dune in South Africa, the focus is on having FUN! We cater for all age groups, beginners and Pro’s. If you don’t feel confident enough to stand up on your board, you can also sit down or enjoy a belly board ride.
