There are some dunes that are 200-300m tall that make them popular with sandboarders. The most imposing, locally known as "Big Red" is extremely popular, but it could be more beneficial to choose a less crowded and bustling dune. Similar to snowboarding, it is recommended for beginners to begin with the smallest dune.
