Masirah Island – The island with 1001 kite spots

Beginners and advanced riders will find one of the best and most diverse destinations on earth for a great kite holiday. Between May and September, the wind of the Monsoon, coming from the Indian Ocean, reliably supplies the island with best conditions and keeps temperatures even in summer at a pleasant range of 24 to 35 degrees. During peak time, from mid-June to mid-August, strong wind between 25 and 45 knots on a daily basis are given 24/7. Lagoons with up to 12km shallow area and countless flatwater bays on the west coast, different wave spots for every level on the east coast of the island gives a unknown diversity. Season: Summer (May to September).

Bar al Hickman, Al Khaluf – Oman’s most beautiful lagoons for unique kite adventurers

Crystal clear turquoise lagoons with knee- to waist-deep water, surrounded by white coral sand… the perfect environment for a guided kite adventure.

Al Jazir – a perfect lagoon north of Salalah in the Dhofar region

The lagoon of Al Jazir is the first spot from Salalah which provides a protected environment against the often very rough open sea. Together with constant wind conditions it is a great flat water spot. It is located north of the Dhofar Mountains and ideally placed in the wind system of the monsoon wind of the Indian Ocean.

The wind conditions are similar to those on Masirah Island and Bar al Hickman. The main season is between May and September.

Quryatt – sideshore from right with beach break – 90 minutes from Muscat

Kitesurfing lessons in Quryatt depending on the forecast. The kite spot of Quryatt is suitable for advanced riders with a hydrofoil or Race Board. Typical conditions: Thermal conditions are on- to side-onshore-breezes in the afternoon in the lower wind range between 7 and 20 knots. Flat sloping beach with 50-200 meters shallow area. Wind can be a little better than in Muscat, however, with the shore break on the beach difficult and not suitable for beginners. Season: All year, however, in the summer (May to September) you may experience hot temperatures.

 

Ras al Hadd – shallow lagoon at Sur

The small lagoon of around 1 square kilometer at the north-eastern cape of Oman is a good flat water spot at medium and high tides in shallow water. At low tide the lagoon remains empty. Different wind conditions prevail here, as both wind systems – the Indian Ocean as well as the Arabian Sea – are influencing the lagoon. In summer, temperatures can reach up to 54 degrees if the heated southern wind is blowing from the desert.

 

Wave Spot Aseelah (Al Ashkarah)

The most famous wave spot on the mainland is situated 12km north of Aseelah near Al Ashkarah. The spot offers a nice and clean wave. During summer (June to August), strong wind of 25-45 knots from the south cause big waves and blows side shore from the right. This spot is only for really advanced riders. A violent beach break and several reefs on the downwind side can be really dangerous for beginners and intermediates. In winter, lighter wind comes from the north with a weak wave – good for classic surfing. Aseelah is not really a destination for a kite holiday, but the spot can shorten the way back to Muscat along the east coast of the mainland. The spot earned its reputation in the times when better spots in the south where still difficult to reach due to the lack of roads in those times.
