Safety Precautions

When it comes to safety while sandboarding, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, always wear sunscreen! The sand reflects the sun’s rays and can cause sunburns very easily. Secondly, invest in a good pair of sandboard boots. This will help prevent slips and falls while you’re riding down the dunes. Finally, make sure to stay hydrated while you’re out in the heat. Drink plenty of water and take breaks often to avoid heat exhaustion.

What to bring along for your sandboarding adventure

Sandboarding is an amazing activity to do while on vacation in Cape Town during the summertime. But what do you need to bring with you to make the most of your experience? Here are a few essentials:

  • A good pair of sandals or shoes that can get wet. You’ll be walking along the Atlantis Dunes, so closed-toe shoes are best, especially for strapping your feet into the board.
  • A swimsuit or shorts to change into once you’re at the dune. This way you won’t have to worry about getting sand in your clothes.
  • A towel to dust off after your sandboarding session.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to protect you from the harsh South African sun.
  • A water bottle to stay hydrated.
  • A camera to capture all the fun!
