Driving On BeachesIf you have been hanging out to drive on the beach, make sure you travel when it is low tide. Before you go rushing onto the sand remember to deflate your tyres to 15-20 PSI and re inflate when leaving the park. Be considerate of other drivers when driving on beaches and ensure you do not block any paths when stopping. It is a good idea to stop on firm areas and point your vehicle in a direction that is easiest to set off again.
It is always a good idea to travel with another capable vehicle as they can assist with snatching you out of trouble. When traveling along the beach you are bound to come across areas with extremely soft sand. If you do find yourself bogged, keep your tyres straight and try reversing back and forth to see to break free. If this is not working a pair of maxtrax under each wheel are sure to do the trick. Or if for some reason maxtrax are not part of your inventory ask your mate to snatch you out safely. Beers will be on you for the night!
