SUR MASIRAH, Oman - May 30, 2013 - PRLog -- The kites are flying high again off the coast of beautiful Masirah Island, the island just a few kilometres away from Oman's mainland. In the summer months, the wind blows over Masirah with an average of over 20 knots, influenced by the monsoon of the Indian Ocean. Numerous lagoons with extensive shallow water areas offer ideal conditions at temperatures around 30 ° C. Therefore, every summer the team of Kiteboarding Oman literally pitches its tents near the village of Sur Masira where they welcome adventurous kiteboarders in the Bedouin camp. Since early May, the kite camp has been re-opened and was honoured by the first guest of the year, the Omani Minister of Tourism, His Excellency Ahmed al Mahrazi. Managing Director Alexander Friesl acted as his guide through the camp.

"Masirah Island is no longer a secret spot. We welcome more and more riders who appreciate our service in this stunning area and come back”, said Friesl who lives and works in the Sultanate of Oman since 2007. As there is no flight connection, the guests have to journey 400 kilometers across the desert to reach Masirah. Nevertheless, more and more riders  upon themselves this adventure and enjoy empty beaches far away from mass tourism, the unique atmosphere and almost untouched nature on the island which was cut off from the modern world for a long time.
Until September, the kite camp is open on Masirah Island. Kiteboarding Oman offers, among other services, kite courses and a rescue service. During the winter months the schooling moves to the station at Sawadi Beach, about 75 kilometers north of the Omani capital Muscat.
