Quality beachie, inside trench can make for long periods caught inside.
Will only work when the monsoons are present in upper Indian ocean, generally this coincides with little chance of offshores. No local surfers at all & apparently surfed only a handful of times (surfed by Surfer Mag crew). The locals are really nice, so be sure to reciprocate.
Good adventure, but don't expect Indo quality.

How's the surf? - Every place around Oman looks great for wind surfing but how is it for just surfing? Where the hell does a guy get a surfboard around there?
