Information about Dubai surfing, surf in the Arabian Gulf (or Persian Gulf), surf in Oman, and surf in other UAE emirates including Ajman, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Umm Al Quwain, and RAK (Ras al Khaimah). For buying and selling surfboards and other surf gear, visit the surfboards for sale section of the Dubai surf forum.

Surfers arriving in Dubai don't usually expect to discover that the Gulf region has surf and surfers. Surfing conditions in Dubai are not exactly like the North Shore of Hawaii but you can still have a good blast surfing with endless sunshine, warm water, and even a few (small) waves rolling in once or twice a week in the winter. Surfing is becoming more popular as the population of Dubai continues to grow at a fast pace. The decreasing number of beaches with surf (due to The World and the Palm Islands being built in Dubai) means that the lineup is not as empty of surfers as in the past, but most surfers in Dubai are friendly. Coldest water temperature is in January when it's down to about 20-24 C - about half the people surfing will wear a spring wetsuit.
