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!
