Go back to the school, turn in your equipment, and watch some of the videos of other boarders before heading back home or to your hotel.

One of the best experiences ever...

One of the best experiences ever!
We had a professional snowboard teacher who helped us choose the most suitable equipment and later gave us first insights into snowboarding. A sand buggy took us to various sand dunes to practice. The views were amazing and the experience unforgettable!
Awesome instructor and experience! It starts on a smaller hill nearby that you hike up yourself wearing normal snowboard boots. Once you get the hang of it, you jump into a buggy with other people who are riding different boards the laying down kind for a thrilling ride out to bigger hills. We tried 3 or 4 large hills, took a few spills and inevitably got sand everywhere, watched the sunset, and had a lot of laughs! The ride back to Huacachina was another thrilling ride! They immediately share the photos and videos so you have nice memories of the experience without needing to get your phone or camera all sandy!
The best time of my life! The tour guide was very young but knowledgeable. We first practiced on a tiny hill and then were transferred to giant hills via dune buggy. The ride alone was so much fun! Ample time to sand board and the guide was very patient.
