Sandboarding Bites #25

This one shouldn’t apply to a lot of us but if you’re going Sandboarding, don’t leave your litter behind; either put it in the bins nearby or take it with you to dispose later. Littering makes the surrounding area worse for the locals, wildlife, and people who want to visit in the future.

Top 10 Sandboarding Countries of 2021

Well, after another unpredictable year for not just travel but for Sandboarding as a whole. This years' list will be just as condensed as the last I'm afraid. It goes without saying that travel has resumed compared to this time last year, but that doesn't mean that a lot of events and trips has been cancelled. As the same as last year I will be comparing countries in terms of the following: Crime rate, Cost of Living, Internet Speed, Quality of Life, Pollution Index, and Healthcare Index. Here are the Top 10 countries for Sandboarding, for this year:

#10 United Arab Emirates (appeared in 2014, 2018; highest position: 5th, 2014)

#9 India (new entry)

#8 Spain (appeared every year; highest position: 1st, 2019)

#7 Algeria (appeared in 2014; highest position: 7th, 2021)

#6 South Africa (appeared in 2017; highest position: 10th, 2017)

Sandboarding Bites #24

There’s a common stereotype that the British prefer to talk slow and shout in English rather than make an effort in the local language, but if you want to make friends, do your best to converse in the local language.

Sandboarding Bites #23

Don’t be impatient; if someone’s already going down on the dune solo, wait for them to finish first.

#Sandboarding Bites 22

Are you going somewhere where you’ve never been before? If the terrain or conditions aren’t what you’re used to; it may be worthwhile booking a session with a local instructor or sandboarding school, if you’re fairly experienced on the dunes you won’t need to pay for as many lessons as a beginner.
