Challenge #8: Dune Sea Surfing

The place: the edge of the Dune Sea

The time: very, very early in the morning.

Welcome Survivors. Today we’re at the northern most part of the Dune Sea. It’s here that you will start another race. As you can feel, it gets pretty windy here this time of year. That’s actually going to help you because this is a wind surfing competition. The only difference is that you will be surfing on sand and not water, as illustrated by my lovely assistant Mitzy.

You will have from suns rise to suns fall to complete the race from the north end of the Dune Sea to the south end by Womprat Ridge. There is a catch…

Remember the spare parts in the sandcrawler you used to construct your cooling droid? Well, you’ll be using the same junk pieces to construct your wind-surfer. So not only will you have to build your wind-surfboard you will then have to use what you built to hopefully take you to the finish line.

I can tell you now that your wind-surfer will not be as good as the one Mitzy was riding. There is little cloth in there for sails and what there is, is not in very large pieces. You’re going to have to use your imagination for this one.

Also, we took out all the power sources. The one defining factor of your wind-surfer is that it must be powered by the wind. …so no using the force either.

So if there aren’t any questions, the suns are about to rise. Once I give the word, you can all race into the sandcrawler and begin building your wind-surfer. Once it’s built…off you go.
