Sandviper is perfect for dune bashing


If its not toast-making alarm clocks or finger powered MP3 players, the lads at Yanko Design are dreaming up new ways to traverse the deserts of Dubai. Looking at sandboarding, the boys have created a board that meets the special conditions sliding on sand creates. The Sandviper has a wide front area and narrow back for aggressive maneuvering, with a raised top side to stop sand gathering. Realizing that people fall over, designer Marc Bischoff made it easily repairable with replaceable plastic ‘socks’ on the board’s under side. Now all you need is a mask (sand in the eyes can be nasty) and you’re all set.
