We rented a sandboard and a sandsled from SMP. Matt was our "salesperson" and was super friendly and helpful. When there wasn't a typical sled available, he gave us an old board to try and then called us when a sled was returned. He also gave me tips on how to sandboard, since I had never tried it before. Our group of adults really enjoyed ourselves, especially on the sled. We didn't particularly enjoy the dunes behind the rental place (too small and windy), so we took Matt's suggestion and headed to Honeyman State Park. We liked it so much we took advantage of our 24 hour rental and returned the next morning. We weren't sure if we would enjoy it enough to make the walk back up after every run, but we did. We wanted another board on the 2nd day but didn't want to drive back in to town to get one from SMP, so we stopped along the side of the road for a $10 sled rental. It was a different style, definitely heavier and older, but also worked out fine for us. This guy certainly didn't have to same level of professionalism that we found at SMP, though. If you're looking for good equipment and pointers on how to have a great time riding down the dunes, go to Sand Master Park! And if you want to sled, rent one from SMP because it's big enough for two people - and riding double gets you some good speed. Be prepared to have sand everywhere when you leave.

Thank you for the great review! When are you coming back for more fun. If you time it right often you can ride with our staff after work hours. We go ride the dunes as much as possible!!
