Discover how to hang ten in the city and find out more about Dubai's thriving surf culture.

"Our vision has always been to show the world that you can, in fact, surf in Dubai. People have been surfing here since the late 1980s. It has grown tremendously from literally a handful of expats at the start, to a now-estimated 2,000 active regular surfers, and an annual event that attracts international attention. While the waves might not be as big as in Australia, the accessibility to quality instruction, the equipment available and culture of the local community is world-class.
