What a flow rider! - There are two waves: the main flow rider with a nice tube and a pool for beginners. Only bodyboards are allowed. You can do drop knee but no stand up.  Finally you don't need so much practice on it to manage and not wipe out afte

Two days in Dubaï. Unfortunately, no waves ... but great session thanks to Flow Rider of Wild Wadi Park. Unless it was not a very sunny day and a bit cold, I had really great time there.

the must have list... for surfing in dubai - hey... moving to dubai in 2 weeks and I have a few questions...
i'm a female who usually rides a 6.3 shortboard or 6.1 fish... Just wondering what type of board i should bring... if there are any for sale there... or surf merchandise... boardies, ding repair kits, zinc, wax, bikinis (actually good for surfing) or any suggestions on how to get involved in some rides/ community, etc.

basically, what should I not forget to bring, or any extra tips... thnx

Re: Bahrain - I'm from Saudi and live in Dhahran/Khobar...Got the wave/surf-mania while living in S. Calif for some time...Northern coast of Bahrain (the Seef area beach), where you find fishermen, might be the best location for surfing on the island (not very sure)..didn't try it but willing to...surfing might be probable only in stormy conditions...drop me a line if intersted in further wave investigation.
