SANDBOARDING: The Newest Reason To Visit Ilocos

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.

    • please call this number 09198735516… the sandboarding adventure includes 4×4 ride — minimum of 1 hour, maximum of 4 persons per vehicle.

  1. Hello there,
    Greetings of Peace and Goodwill.

    Please email me the details of the sandboarding adventure. I want to go there this Saturday with three of my closest friends. We really like to experience the adventure. Please include the TOTAL COST

    Thank you ever so much indeed, i would appreciate it more if you will phone me through my mobile

    Have a great day and please reply promptly because we don’t want to wait that long. We are pressed for time. Many thanks. 🙂

    • Hi! I forwarded your number to Ilocos Sand Boarding. The weather is bad right now. Hope it will be okay by Saturday. Thanks.

  2. Hi! I just want to inquire about the details of the sandboarding adventure and its cost. I have read on other site that it costs Php2,500 for 1 hour but that was posted last Feb 2010. My friends and I we’re planning to go there on last day of this month or mid of February. Looking forward for your reply.


    • Hi, Minnie! A customized eco-afventure tour could be requested. It usually depends on the tourist’s sked request, and depende if for pick-up or meet-up at the dunes.

  3. Hi! What else do we need to know about trying sandboarding? Like, do we need special equipment for this? What type of shoes/clothing are suitable for this? AND, when is the best time (month) to try this? Thanks!

    • you can bring your own protective gear if you wish, but we provide the sandboard. the best time is before 10 am or after 4 pm when it’s not scorching hot.
