The Dunes are a marvel to ride on and with combination of a good instructor, young and fast adrenaline junkies like myself, you'll have an experience of your lifetime. No experience required, just a heart of fun filled individual. The experience was excellent all around

Good fun, however our guide seemed to think that just because I was female, I wouldn't be able to do some of the trickier stuff. None of it was that hard but instead, I was told to video the boys whilst they did it...when myself...More
