COS trippn' 3rd stop: Swakopmund, Namibia - Sandboarding

You can't visit Namibia without trying sandboarding. They let you do it standing, like snowboarding, or sitting, like sledding.

Here we are with the other sand boarders and our patient teachers.

Safety first! We all wore helmets, and got a lesson in technique before starting. I opted for the sitting method, which actually is the laying down method at first. For this method you used a board that has been greased up a bit to reduce friction.

Coalee opted for the standing up method. Here she is whizzing down the hill like a pro.

At the end Coalee and I sledded down a giant hill together. We got sand all over, but it was really fun! Then we had lunch with our trainers and the other sand boarders.
