If you go by the seasons of DARK DOG‘s homeland Austria now is the time to dust off your snowboard, bundle up and hit the slopes. However on the other side of the earth there are people that are headed to the beach this time of year.
Either way, you can put your board to use! Check out the DARK DOG Top Spots for snow and sand boarding!
St Anton, Austria
Among snowboarders St Anton has the reputation to be one of the best resorts in Austria, especially for freeriders.
Japan is not the first snowboarding destination one might think of, but it’s an insider tip. You get fresh snow pretty regularly so expect nice powder pillows to play on.
Serre Chevalier, France
This place in the Southern French Alps is one of the best places to ride in France! A big plus is that this region averages 300 days of sunshine per year.
San Pedro, Chile
Sandboarding in South America is increasingly popular. Located in one of the driest regions of the world, in the northern part of the Atacama Desert you can find the “Death Valley.” The dunes there are perfect for sandboarding.
Namib Desert, Namibia
The Guinness World Record for the fastest recorded sandskiing happened right here at 60mph (96.56km/h). This desert stays pleasantly cool all year around due to the Benguela Current.
