Tips for Renters


Wind plays a huge factor in riding on the sand dunes. Gusts up to 100 mph cross the dunes in a tornado style storm. Though it is not necessarily dangerous, high winds can make the ride less enjoyable. Wanna skip the wind? COME EARLY! Wind typically picks up around noon, EVERY DAY. It’s inevitable! Show up as close to 9am as possible to avoid the lines and skip the sand storms. Of course, if you can’t make it early, you’ll still have a great experience!! We want you to be as comfortable as possible given the risky situation. Bandannas can be used as protection from the shared helmet use. We clean our helmets between each use for your hygiene. Full face, DOT approved helmets are required (and included) for ALL renters. Dress warm. Torex ATV Rentals recommends full body coverage for safety. Long sleeves, pants, close toed shoes are best but not required. Eye protection is recommended and highly encouraged. We provide goggles (ski type, no tint) for your convenience. Sunglasses are a popular alternative, but we do not provide them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Clothing & Gear

What should I wear?
We recommend long pants, long sleeve shirts, and close toed shoes, for your protection. If you have protective riding gear, you should bring it.
Do I need protective riding gear?
It is encouraged, but not required. This may include body armor, a jersey, elbow pads, hip/tailbone pads, gloves, riding pants, knee pads, and/or boots.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
Yes! Absolutely. A DOT approved Motorcycle helmet, with the chin strap fastened at all times, is required.
Are helmets included with the rental?
Yes! Goggles also included.

Location & Time

How do I access the sand?
We have access directly from our rental office! No trailers or lengthy directions needed. Our access road takes about 3-5 minutes to reach the sand from our office.
Can I get to the beach?
Yes! However, it does take a little more time. We recommend a two hour rental if going to the beach (unless you want to hurry!)
How do I know where I'm going?
We will offer you a map, show you designated riding areas during the safety orientation, and lead you to the sand and show you major landmarks. You are expected to come back on your own. It’s easy! Although we won’t be on the sand with you to watch you ride, we are just a few minutes away, in case you need our help. We are NOT a guide or tour service.
Are the quads legal to ride on the dunes?
Yes! Part of the beauty of renting a quad is that the legal stuff is all taken care of!
What time of day is best to rent?
We always recommend renting in the morning, before 12pm. In the afternoon, we tend to get busier. Also, the wind usually picks up in the afternoon. The only major change is wearing goggles for eye protection instead of sunglasses. We close at 6pm every day. It’s a good idea to show up or call by 5 or 5:30 and check in with us.
How long should I rent for?
Most renters rent for one hour. When riding to the beach, we recommend a two hour rental. We also offer half hour rentals for those who have time restraints!

Discounts are available for more than 4 hours of rental. Please call or email for details.

Passengers & Age Limits

How many people can ride on a quad?
Only one person can sit on each of the quads we offer as rentals. Sorry – it’s state law!
Can I bring my baby on a quad with me?
No. Only one person per quad. Again, it’s state law. We DO offer side by side machines that carry, two, three, or four people. All passengers must be at least 3 years old AND safely fit in the seatbelt restraints. Booster seats or car seats are not allowed. They compromise the safety of our seatbelt harnesses.
How old do you have to be to drive a machine?
Quads: If under 16 years of age, state law requires a size and fit standard: Size and Fit Requirements Class I ATV (quad) A Class I ATV operator under the age of 16, must meet all the following minimum physical size requirements (Rider Fit) in relationship to the vehicle:

torex_fit_3

1. Brake Reach: With hands placed in the normal operating position and fingers straight out, the first joint (from the tip) of the middle finger will extend beyond the brake lever and clutch.

2. Leg Length: While sitting and with their feet on the pegs, the knee must be bent at least 45 degrees.

3. Grip Reach: While sitting upright on the quad with hands on the handle bars and not leaning forward, there must be a distinct angle between the upper arm and the forearm, and;

4. The operator must be able to turn the handle bars from lock to lock while maintaining grip on the handle bars and maintaining throttle and brake control. Disabled operators are allowed to use prosthetic devices or modified or adaptive equipment to achieve rider fit.

On average, an 8 year old meets the size and fit requirements and can ride a mini quad. An average sized 12 year old typically meets the size and fit requirements for a regular size quad. Of course, we would have to see the child on the quad to make sure he or she fits, and the parent must consent and agree.

Side by Sides: 21 years of age with a valid driver’s license or Identification Card *Exceptions can be made if you are between the ages of 18-21. Talk to management.

How old does a passenger have to be?
For side by sides: At least 3 years old for a Yamaha Rhino. An average 5 or 6 year old can typically fit as a passenger in a RZR or Arctic Cat.

Each machine has a slightly different seatbelt harness system. These are minimum requirements: We cannot guarantee your child will fit until we can properly assess the situation, in person with the machine available.
