Sand Dune-Buggy Surfing Safari! [VIDEO]
Huacachina is made for adventure junkies.
Dune buggies, sand surf-boards and adrenaline. A teen age boy’s dream! The waves of sand last year round providing an endless season for sandboarding and buggying that will give you an awesome rush. Sounds like a teen age boy’s dream. (And yes, I had a blast too, besides the fact that I had two sprained ankles.)
First, the buggy.
Looks safe enough, right? Well, the buggy was benign, but our driver was a hot-dogger! I think the scariest part was driving through the dunes, circling around, up and down and sideways.. hold on for dear life!
And the surfing, was a lot of fun. The great part in my opinion was that I really didn’t go that fast, the sand itself created a resistance. Oh, especially if you dragged your legs behind you. But Miro didn’t bother.. feet up, speedy zipping down the mounds, mountains of speed….
…and Miro’s take (in his own words):
What can I say?
It was awesome.
Alright let me take a step back. What I’m talking about is that time we went sand surfing, which didn’t happen too long ago. Let me start at square one. About a week ago my mom and I went to Huacachina to have an adventure in the sand, and while we did get an adventure, we also got a lot more (Like soiled pants). Basically, They round you up in town, and then they board you on a Dune (Or as I say, Doom) Buggy.
You then enter the park, and that’s where the bumpy ride starts. If you’re lucky enough and get one of the better drivers, you’ll have a great time, if not, it’ll be terrifying (It’s actually terrifying either way but you’ll have a better time with a good driver). Think you’re gonna have a calm ride?
Have fun sliding down the mountains? Not be frightened a bit? Well, you can think all you want, but it will be scary no matter what, on the other hand, it’s a blast.
And my mom even got into the action too!
I probably didn’t make it sound good, but it’s A LOT of fun. Just try it. Seriously. What are you still reading this for? Get your ass to Peru asap.
