Doonies 2: Glamis Sand Dunes

Who or what are the Doonies? They're described as “Monster Energy and Dirt Shark‘s idea of the ultimate shred session in the sand dunes…” As you can see, they are typically found in the company of awesome machines and beautiful women. In this installment — there have been two so far — the Doonies take Harleys, snowmobiles, dirt bikes, trucks fitted with sand paddles, assorted other OHVs (Off Highway Vehicles) and the Monster Energy Girls out to Glamis, a 40 mile stretch of sand formally called the Imperial Sand Dunes.

Among the eye-catching things you'll see in this video are motorcycle wipe-outs, helicopters, improbably high dune jumps and Dianna Dahlgren (@diannajdahlgren).

Dianna Dahlgren is a former five-year Miss Supercross, during which she served as the spokeswoman for Monster AMA Supercross who, judging by her Facebook posts, is inordinately proud of the Doonies 2 poster she's selling.

The music in this short film includes Sleep – “Dragonaut” and Mickey Avalon- “Rock Bottom.” You can read more about the video shoot in Larry Chen's article over on

If you're interested in learning more about Glamis (or visiting the area), you'll find the Bureau Land Management east of San Diego, just north of Mexicali. The remnants of a prehistoric body of water called Lake Cahuilla, dunes there reach a height of 300 feet or more. Jesse Kiser of Ride Apart describes the location as,

“…a place made up of giant sand dunes, perfect for thrashing dirt bikes, buggies, trucks and Broncos in total redneck fashion. Thrashing through the sand dunes, it’s the home to yearly festivities like Huckfest. Many friends have broken parts on the beautiful sand dunes in Glamis. It's a redneck haven.”

Glamis largest mass of sand dunes in California. Check the place out on Facebook at /BLMImperialSandDunes.

We cannot guarantee Dahlgren or any of the Monster Energy Girls will be there if you decide to visit.
