Abby was a great instructor. It was the time of our lives! She was encouraging and complimenting every ride we had down the hill. The owners are fantastic and their dune buggy rides are radical😊

I took a group of kids here. The staff was patient, and kind, and worked with the kids. Two kids shared a sand board, they got lessons, and had a GREAT time sand boarding! I would definitely recommend it as a great place to spend an afternoon -- or whole day! If you don't know how to sandboard, do take... More

We took our grandkids, ages 15, 12 and 10, to Sand Master Park for an outstanding day. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially the trainner Rolin Cox, who after an hour of sandboard instruction had the three zipping down the dunes. The boards were new looking and in great condition and are rented for 24 hours. This gave us... More

We had such a great time sand boarding! From our initial step into the shop, we were treated great, given excellent help and advice to get us on our way. We have a 7 and a 9 year old. Our 7 year old has never done any type of boarding or skiing and picked it up in a flash. It's... More

So much fun! This is a must when you come to Florence! You'll love it! They hooked us up with upgraded boards and made sure we were all set up for a good time!

The staff is right when they say it is not snowboarding. It takes some getting used to even for a 10 year snowboarder like myself but after a run or two the same basic principles took over and I was flying down the hill. My brother is not a boarder at all and I think he honestly might have had... More

We rode the larger dune buggy with maybe 25 people. It was just right (a little crowded) in excitement. The driver was very instructive during the ride. It lasted about an hour. We rode up & down dunes and then out to the ocean. Great fun.

I visited Sandmaster Park with 3 teenagers. We arrived about 1/2 hour after opening on a Sunday. We were all novice sandboarders (although my son is a snowboarder). The shop is small there were two people working- they were pretty laid back. The service was perfunctory; not overly friendly or helpful but they were nice enough. My recommendation is to... More

Sand was not right for sand boarding so we went for a buggie ride. Never, ever again! This was not our first dunes buggie ride but after what we experienced it will be our last. Very bumpy, to the point we females all wished for heavy duty sports bra's. Sand coated our faces, hair, clothes, every where. We've been home... More

Hello Alicia. We are disappointed you did not enjoy the dune buggy tour. It is not for everyone but much better suited for the thrill seeker. Akin to surfing where it will be wavey and will be wet, dune buggy tours YES will be rolling and YES will be sandy. That is the nature of the ride and 99.9% of... More
