I have just learned the basics of kiteboarding at an IKO school, but need to get out with others to practice and learn to get up on the board. Could use a little hand with launching etc. I also would like to know where to go here in Oman and what the wind conditions are like. Any suggestions would be great. Want to get hooked up with the kiting community to meet others and continue to learn.

ya we saw your kite in the air last week, we are a little up the beach from you at athazaba, by a clothing factory. The reason we go there is that some times the wind is a bit stronger there and a few less people. It's always safer to kite with others anyways. Come join us!

They normally meet at NUMBER 1

the directions in are from the Grand Mosque/Ghala Roundabout (Highway Exit) it's further down towards Muscat (but not far) from where you have been going at the moment...

Hope it helps, Tony.

you don't need a 4X4

It's right beside the Azathaba clothing factory. You should be able to see the kites in the air when you get close.

If you are on the coast road heading to Muscat you take the second round about (left). The street quickly T's and you make a quick right and then a left into an empty lot. Park on the solid stuff as most people get stuck in the sand with cars.

See you soon
