Sand Surfing anyone?

Sand surfing, also known as sandboarding, requires balance like surfing, skateboarding, and other board sports.
Has anyone here ever tried it?
Does it require a special type of clothing as I would imagine the hot sand wouldn’t feel good on the skin?
What places have you gone to sand surf?

I watched other people (and a dog) sand surf in Sand Dunes National Park, it looked like fun! It also looked like a lot of work to climb back up the sand dune after you surfed down.

I think this would be a lot of fun!

Sadly, here in southern Illinois, there aren't any good spots for it.
