Never stand or sit on board tips or load heavy objects on them.
Don't ride over shells or stones, they'll scratch and damage
Don't ride into water, boards also don't go well on wet sand.
Edges can chip easily so store and transport in board bag or
wrapped in fabric.
Check screw tightness regularly.
Wipe board and bindings down with paraffin to clean off wax/ dirt
and to renew shine.
Always learn to ride on a gentle slope and stay there till you’re confident before moving to more challenging dunes.
Keep the foot bindings nice and loose when you're first learning. Tighten up when you're ready to start practicing turns.
Learn to turn and stop before tackling the really steep stuff.
Beware of riding down a face that ends abruptly with a horizontal. (Especially true of the dune slip face). The change in angle is very difficult to navigate. Especially if you can’t turn.
See Page on Sandboard Wax.
Our bindings are designed for barefoot riding. (You can use booties or socks in the cooler months). To fit the bindings, undo all the straps and place your foot in the middle of board. Tighten both straps over the front of your foot to fit snugly. No need to adjust these again while riding. Just clip out using the quick release buckle on the ankle strap.
The dune environment:
The dune environment is fragile and sensitive.
Please show respect.
Don’t ride over vegetation.
Don’t disturb birds or animals that make the dunes
Dunes often cover archaeological sites, if you see artefacts,
bones etc. please don’t disturb or remove, just enjoy.
Use your wax sparingly.
