Atmosphere

Will only work when the monsoons are present in upper Indian ocean, generally this coincides with little chance of offshores. No local surfers at all & apparently surfed only a handful of times (surfed by Surfer Mag crew). The locals are really nice, so be sure to reciprocate.

How's the surf? - Every place around Oman looks great for wind surfing but how is it for just surfing? Where the hell does a guy get a surfboard around there?
