After my relative known success of the Sandboarding Book, and considering I have also released music; I would like to enter another frontier of creativity, and this will I hope to boost the presence of Sandboarding in the global sports scene.
I am currently starting an untitled project for a Sandboarding Movie or Film on Sandboarding. I have no idea when it shall be released but my personal target is for a release no later than January 2024; exactly two years after the first release of the Sandboarding Book. I'll keep you posted.

Coming soon will be something that I have had the vision to complete since I started this blog. I will have published and released a book; it will be a comprehensive guide, a reference book, a how-to book, or even a bible on Sandboarding. I will be first offering opportunities on the purchase and/or possible giveaways of this book right here; the book shall be released no later than the end of January, well in time for the start of the Sandboarding season.

In the first-ever book solely focused on Sandboarding, think of "The Sandboarding Book" as both a reference guide and a how-to book that helps novice and elite athletes get involved in this recently discovered sport.
Often described as “snowboarding on sand,” sandboarding is an exciting sport that many are just discovering.
Jack Soley, the founder of the Sandboarding Nation blog, discovered sandboarding himself in 2008. He found a passion for the sport, and when he began his blog in 2014, he hoped to reach out to the community already hitting the dunes and those that were just getting started. Now, after nearly a decade and over 100,000 views, Soley has placed all his research and expertise into one comprehensive and easy-to-read guide!
This guide has a wealth of advice, whether you’re just starting or looking to improve your sandboarding experience, from essential equipment to tips on tricks and control. Even veteran boarders can find helpful advice in exclusive interviews with sandboarding experts, including instructor Alex Bird, two-time World Sandboarding champ Gabriel Cruz, and sandboarding pioneer Lon Beale.
Grab your copy of this fundamental guide today, then get ready to hit the dunes and join the Sandboarding Nation!

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.

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)
#5 Qatar (appeared in 2015, 2016, 2018; highest position: 4th, 2018)
#4 Denmark (appeared in 2020, highest position: 1st, 2020)
#3 United States of America (appeared in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, 2020; highest position: 1st, 2017)
