Kite surfing

Although not traditionally known for its water sports offerings, the sultanate of Oman has seen a rapid boost in the tourism industry over the past few years, and it aims to please visitors from all corners of the globe, of a variety of temperaments. Ensure that you book a Muscat hotel with an excellent record of hospitality and luxury facilities for an utterly unforgettable holiday. Consider the Al Falaj Hotel which is among some of the best-ranked Oman hotels in the state. If you are an avid water sports enthusiast and you happen to find yourself in Oman, fear not, for the sultanate now offers visitors the chance to engage in that most fun of water sports activities: kitesurfing. If you are a seasoned pro, then you already know what this fun pastime entails. If you are intrigued and want to find out more, many have described it as an exciting sport that combines surfing, windsurfing, paragliding, gymnastics, and wakeboarding into one thrilling ride across the waves. A parachute is hitched to the rider’s back and the sport calls upon the power of the wind currents to propel riders across the foamy waves on a kite board or surfboard. With daily wind speeds above twenty knots and a balmy temperature of 28 degrees in a shallow lagoon spanning about eight kilometers, kite surfers are sure to experience a multitude of thrilling spills.
