Turns out I suck at sandboarding :(

Sandboarding at Huacachina, a tiny oasis nestled amongst gigantic dunes and pictured on the S50 note, was amazing.

Riding the dune buggy was like being on a roller-coaster, and I thought we were going to flip the car the entire time.  We were all freaked out when they got it up to 100 km/h on a 'flat' bit and the back was sliding around in the sand...

Especially since we blew a tyre (see below) at one point, and started sliding back down a dune...

Turns out sandboarding is very different to snowboarding.  I tried standing up on one dune, but was rubbish at it, so went headfirst from then on :)
