Very long slow(when small) wave, rips are constant requires big monsoon swell running up coast to wrap around point and break. Lots of fishing boats and cloudy water make for nervous surfs

fun wave - Just got back from this spot last week. A bit more sheltered than rest of the coast but it is windy this time of year. Some really long, mellow, uncrowded rides on offer.

Summer - just visited this spot this summer. great time ! only problem was the strong side ways wind, and the strong current pull you in to the center of the bay.

probaby not a problem - The Omanis tend to be some of the politest people around, i wouldn't push old Dubya too much though. We are heading down again soon and don't expect any probs. Rrespect for them and their views are generally what people want everywhere. Does anyone know if the new road is finished up the cost for Al ashkara
