If I could go sand-boarding every day I would, it was such fun. It was an action packed family adventure, that we all loved. Racing down the dunes was exhilarating and even the walk back up again was no hardship because we knew that the next downhill ride awaited us. Beth and her team are just brilliant - they were professional, friendly and just great to be around. This really is an experience not to be missed!

This is just the thing to do in Swakop. It’s exciting, it’s fun, the dunes are beautiful and the team at Alter Action does a wonderful job. We took the activity today with our 3 children and were really taken care of by Beth and her friendly staff. Equipment works well, it’s all safe and clean. But more importantly, it’s a blast. Our children loved it. Must do in Swakop.

We had so much fun. My family and I tried both laying and stand up sandboarding. The pick-up, and drop off were great, even though we arrived late, Beth made a plan to pick us up from the agreed location. Beth and her team are the best. I'll definitely come back for more stand up sandboarding. Thank you Beth and your amazing team.

We were already expecting it to be a fun day out, but the experience surpassed our expectations. Beth and her team were fantastic and nice to speak with - good at dealing with all skill levels and very patient and encouraging. We did the stand up boarding and got to do some lay down boarding as well which was a blast. Even if you fall (which we both did plenty of) the sand is soft and forgiving. It's a bit of a trek up the dunes, but manageable - and you get a sandwich lunch afterwards. We highly recommend - nice views, helpful and friendly team, and so much fun.

Very professional, fun crew. They explain you in details how to use the equipment and it works! We could snowboard even though we hardly had experience. It’s also great to watch the video together in the afternoon. And they made beautiful pictures! Thanks guys.
