We first took a 4x4 ride to roam around and enjoy the view of the Sandunes and Suba Beach. We went on easy trails and slowly to some exciting and deep ones. We stopped a lot for pictorial and sightseeing. The ride itself was refreshing since we started 6:30AM to avoid the burning heat of the sun on noon time.
After the smooth 4x4 ride we then proceed to the allotted area for sandboarding – it is a sport that uses skimboard to slide down the sand slope. We went to the area for beginners since there is also another part for the pro which has a 20 feet slope with some jump of points that demands of expertise on balance.
When the times up and we’re exhausted and hungry we took the ride back and glanced happily to the horizon from where we played watching live memories that makes those footsteps in the area.
Little that we know another hard trail is ahead of us; seriously? A harder trail for a weakened knees… can I say wtf? But no we got to do this – so when they said hold on tight we did and the four wheel car drop to what is seems to be a 170° angle and with all the force in just a glimpse of our eyes climb up to an adjacent slope with same angle. This kneel me down making me bump on a bolt of a skimboard in front of me. This makes me wounded, but feeling alive than ever. What a wonderful way to start the day!.
PS: Sandunes is absolutely a highlight of Ilocos so don’t dare miss this.
