Driving in sand isn't hard once you get the hang of it. Air your tires down to make the tire's footprint bigger for more support on the sand, 13 psi is fine. Unless you're below 15 psi you're not even aired down so don't be afraid to take the tire pressure down to that pressure which will help keep you on top of the sand instead of digging down into it and maybe getting stuck.
Don't use your brakes all the way to a stop, let the sand stop you. Using your brakes all the way until you're stopped can form a sand berm in front of the tires which can make it much harder to get going again.
And yep as suggested above, don't drive sideways or at an angle on a steep dune. Always go straight up and down steep dunes to avoid the chance of a rollover.

LOL I always cringe when I see brake lights going downhill on loose footing (sand or gravel) because it is so easy for one of the tires to lock up and a locked up tire is nothing more than a rudder. As long as tires are rolling you have at least the illusion of control.
