Hopefully he brought a tow rope

One of the many unique features of the Oregon dunes are the large tree islands that pop up in the middle of a sea of sand. These islands also tend to gather freshwater and after a good windstorm, large walls of sand develop that tempt riders to test their luck against the laws of physics. This guy was doing well until his Banshee cut out, sending him into the water at the bottom of the dune. The fun starts at about 5:30
