Ever so proud of the LEAD Movement, the forward-looking Laoag-based eco-adventure group of which I am one of the founding members, I congratulate my fellow-LEADers for sharing their vision for Ilocos Norte, in respect to travel and tourism. They conceptualized the latest sport to experience in the Philippines, and of course, only in Ilocos, since it is only in Ilocos Norte, Laoag Sand Dunes in particular, where there are steep slopes suitable for the adventure. Sandboarding is like any other board sport (e.g. surfing, mountainboarding, skimboarding, skysurfing, snowboarding and skateboarding) except that it has to be played on sand.
In this extreme sport, I assure you, it is quite easy to get yourself started… no snowboarding or skateboarding experience required. All you need is a board and loads of guts… then head to the Desert of La Paz, where you can get your adrenalin fix and at the same time marvel at this natural wonder.
