Worth the 8-hour drive from Vancouver, BC Canada! I cant rave enough about the friendly staff at Sand Master Park. They were accommodating from beginning to end and theyre passionate about the sport. Loans quick responses and follow ups via email made it easy for us to communicate and reserve our Sand Blast Special (highly recommended) before we drove to Oregon from Canada. Despite some scheduling challenges due to dune buggy repairs and a fully booked lessons during the weekend, Loan was able to accommodate us and offer alternatives if they werent able to fulfill everything promised in the special. Gabriel was our dune buggy tour guide and that role title doesnt give the experience justice. He tore up the sand dunes with his killer driving skills and always made sure we were having fun. He was also the one who fixed the dune buggy in time for our arrival! Logan was our sandboarding instructor and he was really knowledgeable. He watched us closely and provided suggestions on how we could improve on our next run. He was also funny, patient and encouraging. We fell numerous times but he cheered us on and cheered even louder when we had a successful run. We were so caught up in the fun that we forgot to get t-shirts that were included in the Sand Blast Special. By the time we realized, we were already driving back to Canada. I emailed Loan and, without hesistation, he shipped the t-shirts to my P.O. box. I would highly recommend going to Sand Master Park. Tips for first timers: - Bring ear plugs to keep the sand out of your ears during the dune buggy tour (Trust me, youll have sand everywhere and I mean everywhere) - Wear sunglasses - Wear socks during sandboarding - Cover your face during the dune buggy tour and dont open your mouth, not even to scream "woohoo" (Youll regret it when you eat sand) - Carry water! Itll get tiring climbing up the sand dunes after a run - Take your sandboard to other sand parks to try longer runs (rentals are valid for 24 hours) - Go out and have fun!
The staff was very friendly, however the woman that was either the owner or manager of some kind was a little rough around the edges. I felt she was waiting to charge us with a late return fee and she actually seemed excited to yell out to me, as Im waiting in line to return our boards, that I was late and she was charging me. She did this in front of other customers and was pretty embarrassing, especially considering we were NOT late and SHE misread the guys handwriting on my rental agreement. It just seemed a little rude and unprofessional yet I would rent from them again and realize everyone has off days and this could have been hers for whatever reason.
Best time ever with the entire family!! The prices are so affordable and the customer service is unbeatable. We had a wide range of abilities in our group from never even been on a board, to experienced boarder, two years old to 50+ year olds. Everyone was laughing and having a great time. Even better, unbeknownst to us our three year old left her stuffed animal that shes had since day one there and these guys made contact with us to get him back to his family. We were so sad for two weeks we thought wed lost him and Sand Master took the extra time and care to make one little girl the happiest ever!
Bucket list adventure! After sand sledding in Namibia, have wanted to sand board for awhile. Sandmaster Park had a great lesson - thanks to Gabe - and then you can keep the board for 24 hours to board on your own. Lon and his wife were amazing and got me in on an impromptu dune buggy tour - permasmile the entire time. Unique and once-in-a-life time experience.
The best place to go Sandboarding. I definitely recommend getting a lesson your first time I have been surfing and snowboard and this was a totally different experience and it hurt a lot less when I fell! The staff was so friendly and helpful! If your on the west coast you have to go into sandmaster park and give it a shot. My whole family loved it!
Sand Master Park is such a fun place for the whole family! It is very easy to find; elders to young kids really enjoy their time there. The sand rails are a great ride, with expert drivers, and activities like sand boarding is a favorite with the adventurous and young at heart! I recommend that folks call ahead for a reserved time.
Super affordable and super fun! If you live near the area and have never sand boarded it is a must, and even if you have to travel I would still recommend it. These guys really go out of their way to make sure the experience is as good as possible and seem to care about their community. Cant recommend enough!
Amazing experience! Sandboarding is so much fun! The staff is knowledgeable and excited about their jobs. I suggest if youre in a group and new to any sort of "boarding" to also get a sand sled. Once your out on the dunes you can swap who gets to use the board or sled. I highly recommend doing this!

Liked this world’s first sandboarding park. Its amazing. This place along Oregon’s shoreline suits the free-wheeling, nature-loving vibe of what locals call the “People’s Coast”. Sculpted sand, I could tackle huge dunes. It was an adventurous way played along this coast. Visit. *****
So much fun! We always have a blast when we stop by sand master park! The owner was extremely friendly and helpful! He answered all of our questions, and gave us tips for maximizing our fun! I would recommend sand master park to everyone and anyone who is looking for some all day fun!
Great price on 24 hour rentals, recommendations of where to go depending on your skill level and they offer a basic 5 minute tutorial if you have never given it a try. I recommend also renting a quad so you can get a ride UP the dunes instead of walking every time.
Sand Master Park is a great destination. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Store is laid out nicely and sandboarding rocks! Excellent for family vacations and anyone who wants to try a fun outdoor activity in a beautiful location.
Weve rented sand boards from Sand Master Park on four separate vacations to the Florence area, and we took lessons during our first visit. Prices are very reasonable, the staff is fantastic. Loved it! Looking forward to our 5th trip,
Renting one of their sandboards was a great experience. The attendant was helpful and friendly while explaining how to use the sandboard. Also, you can get one for really cheap if quality is not a priority: there were a few for $10-15.
Sand master park is an amazing place for kids to play! Its a perfect first time experience and whether youre good or bad at it, youre still gonna have fun! Definitely the best sand boarding place and everyone there is so rad!
For something that looks so expensive, it was a fair price for something fun to do! My boyfriend and I got a lesson from Abby and she gave an excellent sand boarding lesson! Highly suggest her and she does great with kids!
They were very helpful, and set us up right. My son really took to sand boarding pretty quickly and wants to do it again. The prices were right, no pressure sales. Definitely the place of you want to sandboard or sled.
