Sand dune

An UK trainee doctor from Derbyshire has lost his life while boogie boarding down the sand dunes of the Hokianger Harbour area, in New Zealand.

The accident happened in the Opononi beach, near a dune known as the 'suicide hill'.

The man, aged 23, suffered severe head injuries and was airlifted to the Whangarei Hospital in a critical condition.

Sand surfing is a very common sport in this dune area. People are advised not to try it, as it is very dangerous to board down the dune.

It's almost finals' day at Playa Llacolén. The 2018 Antofagasta Bodyboard Festival (ABF) continues in La Cupula, one of the finest boogie waves in Chile.
