It is day two of the waiting period and the early morning greeted us with some stormy and messy 10-12 foot conditions.  The swell is escalating very quickly and soon pipe will be completely washed out and non-contestable, thus ‘Lei Day’ number two has been called.  The forecast still looks promising for later in the week so be sure to check back in tomorrow morning at 7:30am (HST) for the next call.(Volcompipepro.com)

Surfing in United Arab Emirates

If you are a surfer and live in a place where there are no waves, what do you do? The answer to that is “easy”…..With enough money you can do like the guys in Dubai. In the Wadi Adventure Park you will find the best man made wave in the world, located at the base of Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. I wish this was Norway!Surfertoday.com writes that the developers of the surf facility promise a surf pool capable of making 3.3 meter high waves every 90 seconds. All local and international surfers can enjoy the machine powered waves from 12pm, in 55-minute surf sessions that can accomodate up to six riders.

You’ll pay 100 AED (27 dollars) for the artificial experience. The quality of the wave is quite good. You can ride left and right surfable waves. Watch how the wave pool pumps waves here. There’s even a button to control the wave height.
