The tiny little holiday town of Cape St Francis is one of our yearly holiday destinations. It’s the ideal place to kick back and relax, to get away from the crowds and get back in tune with nature. Although the town is better known for its waves (it’s about a 30 minute drive from the well-known surfing hot spot, Jeffrey’s Bay), we once had the chance to surf the sand dunes instead.

I’m not much of an adrenaline junkie and the thought of skiing down a dune at top speed terrified me, quite frankly. But as you can see from the videos below, both Gareth and I gave it a go, and had a great time!

Gareth makes it look easy:

Suneé, as usual, turns out to be the comic relief:

And if adventure sports isn’t quite your thing, the dunes are just as good for building sandcastles or taking soul-soothing walks…

Have you ever gone dune surfing? Did you do better than I did?
