Don't count on too many good days at Sunset but when they come it can be real nice. Weather is always perfect although some Dubaians may disagree in the winter months. And try to spread yourselves out when you come as most people tend to cluster in one spot when there are quite a few decent sandbars spread along the whole length of the beach. On big days (around 2.5, 3m+) sit on the beach for a bit and check the conditions, usually, they break well right in front of the surf house. But it is really hard to paddle out there, unless your duckdives are nailed, and you are certain no one will hit you!. There is a really good rip to paddle out, it is always there, even in small waves, it is running. It is to the left of the beach if you are facing the sea, maybe 150 m down the beach. It is in front of the park/ al thanya street. Cant miss it. Dont hide your keys anywhere on your car, invest in a car lock, PEOPLE ARE WATCHING!
Real friendly atmosphere, no localism at all(unless you are being a true kook), need any help you can get it on www.surfersofdubai.com. Also, don't be a bit*h and complain/drop in on the locals, just have some respect, because Dubai, rarely gets waves in the summer months.
Better than nothing...
