| 2012 Sand Sports Super Show 14th Annual
September 14, 15 and 16, 2012
For more than a dozen years the Sand Sports Super Show has been the BIGGEST and most exciting dune and dirt sports EXPO in the world. Come each September, hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees come together at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California to celebrate and marvel at the latest gear for Sand Sports enthusiasts.
This year, it was entirely evident that UTVs have taken over in the dunes! The show was packed with all kinds of booths catering to UTV enthusiasts. Everything from stock units for sale, to highly customized UTVs were there. The Sand Sports Super Show is THE place to be if you are into sport UTVs.
DuneGuide.com and UTVGuide.net had a booth in the Span with our 2011 Kawasaki Teryx project. We also brought our Sand Collection which brought a lot of people into the booth. Then over in the Fullerton Sand Sports Booth, we had our new 2013 Polaris RZR XP LE. And last, but not least, we had our 2012Kawasaki Teryx4 in the SSV Works booth.
