• Short Summary

    The latest Australian sport - people skiing down sand hills in Cronulla.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Sand skiing! Over and under 'down under'."

    Cronulla, Australia.

    Various shots of people walking in skis over the sand hills of Cronulla, and skiing down the slopes. It looks like it is a bit harder than skiing on snow. Commentator says "This sand sport is becoming very popular down under". One man, having landed in a heap at the bottom of a slope, is shown flying back up to the top of the hill - in reverse footage; a crowd of people watch. Two men tumble down a slope, into the sand - one of them gets a mouthful of sand and spits it out.
