    ... and even though I almost lost my balance at a failed attempt at carving, I scrambled back up the dune like Lawrence of Arabia to do a second run. Incredibly enough, Scott actually had a helmet fitted with a video camera that he let me use on the second run down, so there is video evidence, apart from photographic documentation, that I did indeed sandboard the Dragon.

    ... they were convinced and managed to produce some towels for us.

    Day 6
    Left The Baths at 09h15 and headed back to Clanwilliam towards Lamberts Bay. Had brunch at a restaurant on the harbour and browsed amongst the curio shops on the harbour.
