 Additional Information

The best board for this place is the Long Board... I've seen some guys on short boards, but the waves have to be sizeable... on a long board you are guaranteed much more fun :)

I was told by some people living here longer than I that the water was really cold... upon inspection and by checking out this website http://www.navo.navy.mil/LIBRARY/Metoc/Middle+East/Arabian+Gulf/MCSST/K10/K10+Composite/index.html i found out that its about 26 degrees right now and bearing in mind that in my home city of sydney the maximum water temp in summer is about 22-23 degrees... basically I laughed at them so remember you do NOT need a wetsuit - unless you're a pussy or something.

Atmosphere

On weekends this spot is pretty crowded (with swimmers) however, they do stick to the heavily protected eastern corner of the beach (left side looking out to sea) so that should be fine. In any case, when there are waves good enough for surfing, hardly anyone goes into the water - a red flag is raised and pretty much only the surfers go in... people in this area dont really know much about waves and wave dynamics since they are a rare occurrence after all :)

along with the crowds of course are the cars... be prepared to drive around for a spot on a nice warm day in winter (yeah winter is actually loved more than summer here).

Good Spot for Beginners, read the other information posted about Jumeirah Beach as it is basically part of that stretch of beach but it is enclosed to a certain extent.

General

Its one of only a few spots here and when it works, you dont wanna miss it... unless you have the ability to travel to Sri Lanka and Oman for a few days when the forecasts show a promising swell approaching - as they are easily reachable by plane (Oman by Car - long drive)
