Last weekend we filled up the tank, onto a 2 hour journey to the east coast of the UAE. First time to Fujairah 🙂 Many thanks to Oceanic Khorfakkan for prompting us to go on this trip, and pampering us full-out (blog post here).
Good timing ay, as Cyclone Nilofar had hit and we were blessed with good waves, and some freak hailstorms as side effects.
I had heard about Tim’s Reef, so off we went after breakfast to watch the keen surfers. Sorry, G had conveniently left the zoom lense at home so all you get is little dots of people, hehe. Possibly the lot from Surf Shop Arabia? 🙂
We carried on driving towards Fujairah where the resorts are laid along the shoreline. Lucky for me, I found somewhere we could rent bodyboards, slightly steep at 100AED for 3 hours but, gotta do it! Again, we had conveniently left ours at home.
So much fun. So happy the waves are back 🙂
Swellmap indicates that there will be baby waves in Dubai this weekend. Decent ones in the east coast but we’ll be staying put this time.
See you are the shore?
