“Best Trip!(:”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This summer I went up the coast and my favorite place I went was SMP. The staff there is wonderful. As a 15 year old girl I loved all of the clothes they had for sale there! I took home a shirt with matching shorts that said "It's not Snow" also a great sweatshirt(: I never knew that Sandboarding was so fun. My friends from California always talked about it but I never knew that it was so awesome! I am glad to now have my own board. This summer my family and I are going to make a trip to Florence again. I can't wait to shred some nar(;

“Had a great time at Sand Master Parkin Florence Oregon.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

We loved it! Great staff and way cool sandboards! Very friendly & knowledgable. On a trip during winter break, we rented some boards from Sand Master Park and had a blast!! We were there in the "off" season according to some locals. Apparently not when it came to sandboarding!!!!! Kids had a blast. The shop is cool and they have a samples of sand from around the world - a definite must see! It is affordable, easy to locate and something I will recommend to others who want an excellent boarding experience without snow.

“THE place to go for sandboarding.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

My friends and I had just got done with finals and decided to take a trip to the Oregon Coast. We live in Eugene, so the drive was a short one. A couple of us had snowboarded before, but none of us had sandboarded, so we decided to take a lesson.

I distinctly remember being shocked at how cheap it was ($16 for a rental!), having taken lessons at a ski resort before. The lesson was an hour long, and the instructor was very courteous and friendly, covered all the basics, and ended up riding with us at Honeyman State Park later that evening!

While the dunes behind Sand Master were good for learners, after our lesson, we were ready for more! Our instructor told us to head down to Honeyman State Park, which was only about a 5 minute drive south. All in all, our trip to Sand Master Park ended up being a day full of fun, and we went back multiple times throughout the 2011 summer!
