Kitesurfing in Oman

A Unique Adventure in the Arabian Peninsula

Nestled in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman boasts an impressive array of landscapes and activities for adventure seekers. From soaring mountains to pristine beaches, Oman is a destination that captivate its visitors. 

Kitesurfing stands out as a one-of-a-kind adventure not to be missed in Oman.

The stunning 3,165-kilometer coastline, with its steady winds and pristine waters, is excellent for kitesurfing enthusiasts.

Oman is one of the newest kitesurfing destinations, having gained in popularity in recent years.
If you want to experience constant winds while avoiding crowded beaches, here is the place to be.

Not only are the lagoons flat and warm, but there is also a variety of water conditions suitable for any rider, ranging from glass flats to 3m waves.

Mitu Monteiro hailed Oman’s wave spots as the “perfect place for a wave riding clinic.”

What if I told you that the kitesurfing legend will be teaching wave riding in the country of majesty and beauty?

Kiteboarding season in Oman

Oman has two nice kite seasons: winter and summer. We strongly believe that the second one is far superior.

From late December to March, there is a chance of wind but no waves. 

From June through September, monsoons regularly blow from the Indian Ocean to the Arabian Coast: A brief but intense four-month wind season that provides steady and consistent windy days ideal for kitesurfing lovers.

Are you ready to leave?

Shut your eyes and transport yourself to a Middle Eastern dreamscape surrounded by a breathtaking scenery that invokes countless ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ tales in every corner.

Feel the sand beneath your bare feet. Get your equipment and get ready to hit the water. A steady 25-30 knot wind blows, there is no crowd, and it is a wonderful sunny day. You can ride on the crystal clear water alone or with your travel buddies.

Is it a dream, or is it real?


Sultans of wind – The Movie


Oman has been selected by f-one for the yearly team trip to promote the 2023 new gear collection due to the variety of scenarios that make the country an ideal kite destination.

Important Information

Oman has become increasingly popular as a kitesurfing destination in recent years, which have pros and cons.
If not having crowded beaches is a plus right now, it becomes a disadvantage when seeking for a kite school or a kite shop.

Remember to bring your own kite gear to avoid unpleasant surprises.

And don’t forget to bring an emergency repair kit. 

I’m sure you don’t want to cancel your kite trip because your kite has been damaged and you can’t fix it. 

Is Oman Safe?

Let us debunk a common misconception: Oman is not dangerous.

It is one of the safest countries in the Middle East, despite the fact that has a Muslim religion with minimal laws.
It’s usually a good idea to respect the locals and dress modestly.



The best experience is waiting for you

Are you still doubting it or have you already searched for the best flights on Skyscanner while reading this article?

It is well known that every good kiter loves food. Oman’s cuisine, with its peculiar blend of Arabic, Indian, and African influences, is unquestionably delicious, with must-try dishes such as biryani, shuwa, and halwa.
