Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
The Middle East is not exactly a renowned surfing zone and is undoubtedly the least surfed area of the Indian Ocean. Recent expeditions to discover its potential include The Surfer Mag trip to the ?Empty Quarter? in 2000. While this milestone expose awakened the surfing world to the area's possibilities, it's highly likely that expats from Dubai and Muscat have been riding some spots for years. The Sultanate of Oman, third largest country on the Arabian Peninsula, occupies its SE corner and is 82% desert. The coastline extends from the Strait of Hormuz in the north, to the Republic of Yemen in the south and overlooks three seas - the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea. Although the surfers of Dubai get some surf in the Gulfs, headhigh, clean surf is more likely to be found in the Arabian Sea. Oman has strong seafaring connections and the legendary sailor, Sinbad, is thought to have originated in Sur, where 'Sea Songs' have developed over centuries of close association with the water.
