PLEASE BUY THE U2 Song "Desire" for your Ipod. Sandboard Starts at 2m:44s. This is SAND. The name of the decent is "Suna Bashiri" in Japanese, translated that means SAND RUN. If you havent been to Mt Fuji and decended using the Sand Run then dont comment on whether its sand or not OK. Go there and then argue. It had been a dream of mine to Sandboard Mt Fuji for at least 6 years since the last time I climbed it. I've climbed twice and on the second time I came down a different route called "Sand Run". Fittingly Ive been sandboarding seriously since I was 10 and thought this would be the highlight of my whole sandboard thing. I can tell after snowboarding for 6 years and sandboarding for many more this was the ultimate thrill for myself who pretty much lives off both. Matt my good mate is in the vid and Im holding the camera...sorry for the jerky bits but I was hurtling across gravel at 60. Enjoy.
