The ultimate adventure
Experience with us in Oman the ultimate kitecamp including an off-road adventure! Crossing rugged mountains, driving through the desert, into dreamlike oases, accompanied by the flair of the Orient - to one of the windiest kite spots in the world.
Starting from Muscat we cross Oman with off-road vehicles, which also serve as our accommodation. On the way to the best kite spots we get to know the country and the incredibly friendly people. We experience the flair of the Orient in the desert, its oases and at the bazaar up close.
Can you smell the spices yet?
For six days afterwards it's time to kite like crazy. First on the offshore island of Sur Masirah, then on our very own dream spot on the mainland.
The kite spots in Oman are a kitesurfer's dream come true: Boardshort temperatures, crystal-clear, turquoise-blue water and 4 Bft wind 25 days a month.The Omani mean 'above wind force 4' seriously. The common kite sizes are between 6 and 9 m².
Come with us to the land of dates, scents and friendly faces. Oman is definitely worth an adventure!
Am Weg zum Kiterevier erkunden wir die aufregende Landschaft des Omans mit unseren Offroad-Fahrzeugen: durch Canyons (Wadis) in die Berge, zu alten Städten und durch die Wüste zur Ostküste. Auf unserem Weg lernen wir die freundlichen Omanis kennen, nehmen den Duft der orientalischen Gewürze mit und werden entdecken, warum der Oman auch das Land der Datteln genannt wird.
We start our journey well equipped. Our 400 hp 4x4 vehicles are equipped with camping equipment (camping stoves, crockery and cutlery, mats, tables, shovels and even a shower). The cars have a roof tent for two people. All you really need is a summer sleeping bag - and a drivers license.
A total of six days are planned just for kiting on the beautiful beaches of Masirah.
The prerequisite for participation is that you can safely go upwind. You can come with your own equipment or book a rental package with us. Oman is a strong wind area, so we recommend relatively small kites.

Land of dates, scents and friendly faces
Oman - or rather, the Sultanate of Oman - is located in the south-east of the Arabian Peninsula. Where the incense route had its origins, you can find old tradition next to modern comfort today. Completely without artificially inflated cities with skyscrapers, which are otherwise common in the region.
The crime rate is comparatively low. The Omanis are very friendly and accommodating. They welcome their guests with joy. It can happen that someone invites you to dinner on the street because they would like to talk to you about their country and culture. The official language is Arabic, the commercial language is English, and there is also a colorful mixture of Urdu, Persian and Swahili.
4×4 off-road with 400 hp
We start in Muscat where we pick up our fully equipped off-road vehicles. After stocking up on provisions for the next few days, we drive along the wadis into the cooler mountains.
Bathing lakes, rafting canyons and a fantastic view await us there. The next day we continue to Nizwa, the oldest city in Oman, where we stroll through the bazaar and stock up on spices.
We continue towards the desert - the first thing to do is to have some fun and drive up and down the dunes at high speed. We spend the night in the dunes with a campfire under the Arabian starry sky.
The next day we head for the nearest oasis and then continue towards the sea. There the ferry is waiting for us, which takes us to the nearby island to our kite spot. There we will camp, kite and snorkel for the next few days.
Most probably the best spot
Oman, the pearl of the Orient. This undoubtedly also applies to our kite spot at Sur Masirah. The ferry from the mainland to the small island takes an hour. A few shops, coffee shops and restaurants are located near the ferry dock.
But we travel a little further to set up our kite camp. To endless beaches and shimmering turquoise sea. Shallow water lagoons border standing areas, with a small island on the horizon that wants to be explored. There is also a constant wind blowing, which makes the temperatures really pleasant. We won't need kites larger than 9 m², but perhaps a waveboard for the waves on the other side of the island.
There is another highlight waiting for us under the surface of the water: the fantastic, colorful underwater world: “Like another world, like Pandora,” enthuses Olsen, “really everyone has to pack diving goggles and a snorkel, you have to see it!”
Fancy a great off-road adventure through the mountains and desert of Oman? Discover with us the flair of the Orient up close and one of the windiest kite spots in the world.
We have briefly summarized all the useful information for you.
It definitely makes sense to use our kites, so that you are always well equipped for all conditions. If you do not have your own or not the appropriate equipment, you are welcome to rent from us.
Kite equipment for the duration of the camp: € 530.-
Two participants share a four-wheel drive vehicle. All cars are well equipped with camping equipment (stove, crockery/cutlery, mats, tables, shovel, shower) and have a roof tent in which two can sleep well. If you prefer to sleep alone, you can take an extra tent with you. Basically, you only need (for hygienic reasons) a summer sleeping bag.
Our cars are equipped with camping stoves, crockery and cutlery. If we feel like it, we can go shopping and cook together. Whenever we feel like it, we visit one of the many coffee shops or restaurants for a snack.
Eating out and groceries cost about the same as in Central Europe. Alcohol is significantly more expensive
Die Anreise erfolgt selbständig und ist nicht im Preis inkludiert. Zielflughafen ist Muscat, dort treffen wir uns jedenfalls am 08.08.2024 um 07:30 Früh.
Das Camp endet offiziell am 16.08.2024 abends in Muscat. Im Anschluss werden wir die letzte Nacht im City Seasons Hotel in Muscat verbringen (nicht inkludiert, bitte selbständig buchen)
Money: Currency exchange is possible on site. Or you can withdraw directly on site with a credit card. Money changing opportunities are relatively rare, especially at the kite spot, no money can be changed in Sur Masirah.
We would be happy to send you an offer for cancellation and / or travel insurance.
I am traveling alone, who will I share a car with?
There are 2 people per vehicle who take turns driving. We make the classification and take separate female and male combinations into account.
How many days do we spend kitesurfing?
We are on the water for 6 days. Because the wind blows there for 24 hours, you get a net kite time like 10 days at another kite spot.
Is it safe in Oman?
Oman is often referred to as the Switzerland of the Orient. A kingdom where everyone is very friendly, wealthy and happy.
Do I have internet there?
The internet is incredibly well developed. With the exception of one spot, you have continuous 5G reception. At the last spot only if you are standing on the roof tent 🙂
How is the temperature?
Diverse… It is very hot in Muscat. But as soon as you get to the coast, it becomes much more pleasant. On Masirah we often wore a sweater in the evening.
Do I need a wetsuit?
No, the water is very warm. We always wear a thin undergarment so that the harness doesn't rub on the skin and a long-sleeved Lycra over it as sun protection.
