      Hi Nick, sorry for the delay in replying to your comment, I’ve been in Sri Lanka surfing.

      The east coast of Oman from Ras al Had down all the way to Salalah is a pretty wild coat with not much else than a few fishing villages along the way. When travelling that way you need to go pretty self sufficient with everything including boards and food.

      The surf down that coast is largely generated by the returning monsoon winds generated by the monsoon over the Indian sub continent. This means the ‘season’ is the same as the Indian Monsoon i.e. June July and August.

      There obviously will be waves at other times but they’ll be a lot less reliable. Check out the Magic Seaweed forecast here http://magicseaweed.com/Al-Ashkharah-Surf-Report/557/

      Hope this helps

      Ian
