   If you are talking about the ski-like sport in wich you slide down the dunes

like these ones at  http://fiveprime.org/hivemind/Tags/joaquina,praiadajoaquina

(plenty of photoes there...).   So, it´s likely you are talking about sandboard.

 

  

 

 

    In Brazil´s Northeast they call it "ski bunda"

After “aero-bunda” we drove to a different part of the lagoon for “ski-bunda.” For this strange sport, you sit on what looks like a skateboard without wheels, though the front end is curled inward, creating a pocket for the toes. While the rider balances the board with hands on the side and in the sand, again, undernourished-looking men stand at the top of the hill and control the board’s fast descent into the water. Of course, I shrieked the entire way down and subsequent pictures of my landing show legs outstretched wildly in the air over my head, while huge waves splash all around. My boyfriend’s more graceful landing barely caused a ripple.
