Sandboarding is the thrill du jour for extreme sports enthusiast, bringing with it all the fun of snowboarding but with guaranteed sun sand and in a lot of cases swim suits instead of salopettes.
One of the most popular places to seek out a sandboarding holiday is Egypt – it does after all have the much needed sandy dunes needed for the sport, but it also has a great deal of other attractions for travellers who like adventure such as diving in Sharm El Sheik.
If you hadn’t found an excuse as yet to pack your bags and hit the dunes, check out this lively video from Dune Raider, a Cairo based sandboarder.
