Sandboarding in Abu Dhabi? Only Tony Hawk would sandboard down Abu Dhabi's vast Rub' Al Khali (Empty Quarter) dunes in what is the world's largest expanse of unbroken sand equivalent in size to France, Holland and Belgium combined.

Here were Tony's thoughts about the experience... "It was fun and a challenge, I never thought of sand as a surface you could ride on, so I was really surprised that we got so fast. It was daunting standing on top of these huge dunes pondering going straight down, which I didn't expect. Being out in the desert and in the dunes was what I really pictured when I come to Abu Dhabi and it is amazing to be out here away from the norm," said Hawk, a champion of children's charity through his Tony Hawk Foundation, which promotes and helps finance public skate-parks in low-income areas."
