Name of business: ABOVE Sandboards
What do you make?
Really fast sandboards.
Where can we get our mitts on your products?
Adventure HQ and Go Sports, as well as markets and other pop-ups.
How did you get started?
I learnt to make sandboards in boy scouts when I was about 12 or 13, back in Australia. I continued to make boards with mates after this. Then when I moved to Dubai 7 years ago, I saw there wasn't any boards being made here, so thought it would be a nice project to get back into. It's taken me 7 years to get around to it!
Who and what inspire you?
I'm into board sports, so pull inspiration from other boards into sandboarding. The new movement of "No Boarding" in snowboarding is pretty interesting right now.
