I'm off to South America 61/2 weeks (not that i'm coutning at all!!!) and am therefore gonna be there for the most of their summer.

I love snowboarding, and although i shouldnt complain, i am kinda jealous of my mates goign off to France for snowboarding holiday in feb. Anyway, i think a good alternative - and an amazing way to make them jealous! -would be to go sandboarding instead.

has anyone ever done it? is it just like snowboarding? has anyone got any recommendations of where to do it etc...

I am going round the world following the summer which is wicked but i am going to miss the snow. Just wondering if there is any such thing as sand skiing. I can board so can have a go at that, but am a lot better at skiing. Just wondering if anyone does this?
