About Sandboarding in Dubai

Dubai has emerged as a hub for several desert-based adventure sports due to the existence of large sand dunes that vary in height and slope. Sandboarding is one such adventure sport that is practiced in the spectacular deserts that surround Dubai. The natural topography and environment also offer the perfect settings for sandboarding in Dubai, making it available all year long.

Sandboarding in Dubai is an exhilarating but enjoyable sport similar to sliding over the snow. It involves sliding over the sand dunes, sometimes as high as 1,000 feet. All you have to do is attach your boots to a smooth sandboard that allows you to easily slide down the dunes. It is one of the safest adventure activities in Dubai and is appropriate for tourists of all ages.

Sand boards come in a variety of sizes; the larger size is apt for professionals as it offers increased speed, but requires expert practice. The medium and smaller sizes are good for both novices and semi professionals since they are easy to maneuver. Al Badayer Oasis, Lahbab Desert, and Al Aweer Desert are a few of the famous locations for Dubai sand boarding. While Lahbab and Al Badayer deserts are ideal for both experts and beginners, Al Aweer desert is great for novice sand borders.

You can enjoy Dubai sandboarding, quad biking, and other exhilarating sports through Desert Safari Tours that are available both in the morning and the evening. No matter, whichever tour you choose, you will certainly enjoy sliding down the sand dunes' slopes, and return home with pleasant recollections.

Why You Must Go Sandboarding In Dubai?

  • Easy and Safe: Sandboarding in Dubai is one of the safest and simplest desert adventures when compared to other exhilarating activities. It doesn't call for a lot of expertise or preparation. It has no safety risks and is manageable by everybody. Falling on sand is gentler than snow because it is softer. It doesn't require you to be an expert driver to get behind the wheel of a big vehicle like in a dune buggy or quad biking. Simply grab a board, climb the sand dune, strap to your feet, and enjoy the slide.
  • Exhilarating Solo Activity: While most desert sports in Dubai are performed in pairs, sandboarding is a sport that is done alone or with the support of another person. You and a few friends could take a board to the desert and try it out. This activity can be enjoyed even if you are alone, making it an excellent desert activity for solo travelers.
  • Economical: Dubai sandboarding is one of the most affordable adventures. Although buying the sandboard can be expensive, they are available for rent at a reasonable price.
