“Alter Action Sand Boarding”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is well worth the money, for both the tame and ultimate boarders. We went with Alter Action, they were top class, good instruction, nice team and great lunch and beers after the boarding. I would recommend trying both lie down and stand up boarding even if you haven't snow boarded before... the views are stunning! A completely different and amazing thing to do in an already amazing and strange land!

“Unexpected fun for all ages: from 12 to 50 years”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

We were looking at TripAdvisor in the morning at 9 am and just called them. They picked us up in front of the house 30 mins later not exactly knowing what to expect. My kids and I had most fun. Good instructions and 70 km/h with just a board. Only advice is to ask for 2 boards if you are 6'4". Longer boards for tall people would be more fun and hurt less.

“Buy your onwn board”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We bought a sandboard at the sport shop in town for 65N$. We then went to the dunes just 10 km outside Swakopmund towards Walvisbay and we had a great time on the dunes.

“A great experience for a novice sandboarder”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

It was a bit daunting at first to be shown the massive dune we would be sand-boarding down but the instructions from the guides was top notch. Amazingly I managed to stay up most of my first run and got better and better after that. It was great to also have a go at the lie-down boarding. My only complaint was that I wanted to stay longer, I was having that much fun.
