The Sandboards
When sandboarding, we ONLY use full imported, specially modified snowboards, boots & bindings. We modifiy the sandboards with SuperslickTM laminate surface to the base of the board which helped us win the Sandboarding World Championships.

group adventure

We are the only company in Cape Town that uses such high quality sandboarding equipment as we believe that you will only be content with using the best and safest sand-board equipment available. We apply SuperslickTm to our sandboards- a Downhill Adventures secret material which becomes even more slippery the more you ride it. The bindings and boots are exactly the same as used in Snowboarding- we import all our professional equipment from the US, Canada and Europe..

sandboard boot

The benefits of using REAL snow boards are unmatched- you can only carve and glide with the real thing.
The increased safety advantages of wearing full ankle-protecting sandboard boots are obvious- they dont race down the Alps, Rockies or Andes strapped onto a plywood board with only velcro straps-so why should you?
We have a huge selection of imported boots and snowboards with brands such as Nidecker, Wild Duck, Burton, Simms and Killer Loop.
