Beach racing is an offshoot of enduro and motocross racing. Riders on solo motorcycles and quad bikes compete on a course marked out on a beach, with man-made jumps and sand dunes being constructed to make the course tougher.

Assateague Island National Seashore is home to about 101 wild ponies. The herd in the northern area of Assateague can be seen around the island, from parking lots to the beach to the salt marshes. On hot afternoons they often wander to the beach, where there’s always a warm breeze that acts, along with their fluffy tails, like a fly swatter.
Another mud day, another continent.
Tourists at Daecheon Beach, about 118 miles southwest of Seoul, spattered their way through the opening day of the 15th Annual Boryeong Mud Festival on July 14. Up to 3 million domestic and international tourists will visit the beach during the festival believing the rich mineral content from the mud flats near Boryeong will benefit their skin.
