Back on the seat = bad.
In sand, you want to stand on the pegs, look where you want to go and lean to turn. Do not try to steer.
Try to think of sand like a boat in water. As a boat is starting out, it plows through the water. Give it some more gas and it hops up on plane.
Same thing with a dirt bike in sand, you want to get it up on plane, if you will. Stand with your body back and neutral, letting the bike dance underneath you.
