How was the Sand Clinic?
" IT WAS AWESOME. Sand is quite a bit different than dirt. There are a couple of things that your common sense will tell you to do that are wrong when in sand. Knowing these are important. There are also tips from Tom on how to get out of sand situations that aren't obvious. The classroom portion was shorter, and more wheel time. We basically drove until we were tired, which happens quicker than you would think. I had that just off the roller coaster smile on my face most of the day. All in all itís a good class. I would recommend you take it. Scenery is awesome. After class I stopped in the surf zone, and just sat on top of the roll cage. Nice. "

This clinic is designed to gain practical experience driving in sand. The class
is entirely behind the wheel.
You will gain new confidence with the capabilities of your vehicle and your skill in dealing with sand.
The class is held at
Oceano State Vehicular Recreation Area
near Pismo or in Borrego Springs, CA. We use Oceano Dunes when it is too hot in the lower desert!
CA. The dunes have quite soft sand compared to a wash. No point wondering later, if you and your vehicle can handle
really soft sand. We will be able to experiment with tire pressure. We will
review safety requirements, driving techniques and vehicle recovery. There is
always the possibility that we will need to recover some other vehicle.
A stock SUV or 4WD with low range is all that is required. On the sand you
need not worry about scratches, narrow trails, or clearance. You will need a
dune flag and it would be helpful to have an air compressor. The class is limited to 10 vehicles.
If you are not satisfied and do not feel you received good value for your money and time, send us an email explaining why and the full price of the class will be refunded, no questions asked. You may keep all handouts as our apology.
