Dune Freestyle with Wojtek Pawlusiak
You've never seen sandboarding like this. Just because it's June and (most of) the snow has melted, doesn't mean pro snowboarders get to take a vacation, right? Not if you're Nixon snowboarder Wojtek Pawlusiak, anyway. Wojtek usually spends his winters searching for and destroying city handrails — usually at night and in sub-zero temperatures. So when he got the call to fly over to Abu Dhabi for some next-level sandboarding, Poland's hardest working jibber was happy to take a change of scenery.
We've all seen sandboarding videos before: It's just like snowboarding — except the mountains are small and the snow isn't slippery. No wonder it's never really taken off as a sport. Add a high-powered, desert-optimized Dakar rally car and one of the biggest, steepest sand dunes on the Arabian Peninsula, and suddenly we're talking petroleum-soaked adrenaline sessions.Especially if you throw pro rally driver Jakub Przygonski and a couple of handrails (sandrails?) into the mix. That was the setup, and we think the resulting video definitely raises the bar. What do you think?
