Better to the north... - The waves in the south of Oman are hopelessly inconsistent, and there are too many people surfing them already. It is better to the north, south of Ras Al Had, go there. It is closer to where you all come from anyway. And, it is nearer to Starbucks and all the other stuff you all like too.
