sometimes i think this cycle never ends, we slide from top to bottom and we turn and climb again
this is another old shot from last year when i was in huacachina in peru. back then i wrote about how the most frustrating aspect of sandboarding, compared to snowboarding, was the lack of ski-lifts to get you to the top of the slope. i think this picture gives an idea of what i mean, and trust me it was even hotter than this photo makes it look. i gave sandboarding another go when i was on the sand dunes in coro. if my previous post is accurate that made it my fourth time, and i don't think i'm really improving. i still struggle with turning, which feels so natural in snow and wrong in sand, so i end up going in a straight line for around 10 seconds before stopping. i'm not saying those 10 seconds aren't enjoyable, but compared to the effort involved in climbing the sand dune, it doesn't feel like a fair trade.
