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.
