Who knew Surfing in Oman is a thing? While Oman is best known for many wonderful things includeing its expansive dunes, towering mountains, endless wadis, aromatic roses, and delicious honey; surfing in Oman is not one of them. However, quietly, this sport is alive and practiced by a group of friendly locals who tell me the waves are surprisingly good.
In this episode of the Sultanate we meet three guys from the very welcoming group, Oman Surfers. Nasser al Gadani, Maynard “Japz” Ringor, and Gigante take a break from their surf session at Joe’s Point to fill me in on all the details about surfing in Oman.
We discuss the locations of the surf breaks, the best season for surfing in Oman, the dangers, and how to get involved.
These guys are the real deal. Caring, passionate watermen who are open to sharing and newcomers. So, if you are interested to try your hand at surfing in Oman as a beginner or as a seasoned rider, be sure to look these guys up.
