The Sudamerican Sandboard Cup is the “Latin step” of the Dune Riders International World Tour of Sandboard.
Thanks to its incredible dunes, it first took place in Perù (2000), and so on until now, organized by the Peruvian Association of Sandboarding and Snowboarding (APSS) and with all the support of the National Winter Sports Federation (FEPADI).This event is now the official lead of sudamerican regulation for sandboard in the D.R.I World Tour.
Inside the Sudamerican Sandboard Cup “box” you will find different modalities of contest :
Big Air : The competitors have to jump 4 times a ramp specially designed, and realize figures and tricks in the air to get points, in accordance with the criteria previously determined by the judges (only the best 2 jumps will be taken into account).
Parallel Slalom (Duel Slalom) : Starting 1 vs 1 at the same time, the competitors have to be the first to get to the finish line through a race course filled with gates and designed with curves. The winner is the fastest one at the end of all series.
Boarder Cross : 3 or 4 sandboarders competing simultaneity in a race course specially designed with some obstacles (jumps and curves). The winner is determined following the finish order, time and faults (several series).
