I have just moved to Doha and have my windsurfing equipment arriving shortly. I am an eager beginner.
Not too sure where to sail and when. Anyone interested in getting together and sailing please contact me.
I see that windsurfing in Qatar is not invented yet....:(
I'll move to Doha soon, and would like to ask you whether is there anyone (or a community) who has windsurf, or tries to windsurf? I'll never move to kite, because I'm not interested for that part of surfing, and in my home country I like to go for windsurf competitions.
Another question: in which hotels can somebody rent windsurf?
I'm thinking what would be better? Take all of my equipment with me, or buy online windsurf equipment there?
please e-mail email@example.com or call 6929791
Windsurfing, as a sport and recreational activity, did not emerge until the later half of the twentieth century.
guys anybody have any idea where to find windsurf equipements shop here in Doha??
Hi I just moved to Qatar this month and would love to get back on the water. I windsurf at home and have just started learning to kitesurf although i've only managed a few body drags so far. Are there any rental places here? or is importing kit the only option? Also are there any other girls windsurfing out there?
I prefer two places, Dukhan and Al-Ghariya.
There is no need for full gear. I do not have local driving license, so I have only one option, to rent a taxi. Ford Mondeo has no problem.
With north-west wind, better to go to Dukhan.
Al-Ghariya is definitely the most windy place. Sometimes we have no wind in Doha, and I use sail size 5 in Al-Ghariya.
(with my 90kg)
Al-Ghariya has best conditions 2-3 km from shore. Better to have company in case of trouble with equipment.
Dukhan has no trouble like Al-Ghariya, good conditions on the beach.
I need info on Wind surfing around Qatar.
Best places to go?
Can you rent full gear from somewhere... alternative what wud be the price to buy, and where from?
Is there a community out there... gathering for surfing, or organising stuff?
Really appreciate some replies- email- firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi. I am 1 week here. As far as I see, with local wind (north-west), the best place for windsurfing is Al Ruwais or Ras Laffan. Is there anybody who was there with windsurfing board? Is there anybody in Doha who likes waves and who is ready to go 100km from Doha in a windy Friday? Dmitry, mob.5306132
Does anyone know if there is any kite or windsurfing community, and do they meet to sail together?
Any known spots where the wind in good enough?
I will be moving to Qatar at the end of June. I kite on 16m, 12m, and 9m bow kites and windsurf slalom or wave in anything from 5.0 to 3.5. My weight is arround 85kg.
It looks like the wind is not that good in Doha and only good for kitesurfing. I will appreciate of anyone could give me some information on where you sail, when the wind blows and how big the winds is?
There are no shops in Qatar (that are worth visiting) but I know people sho can supply gaastra sails and starboard boards at reasonable prices. I buy from an internet surf shop in the Uk and they deliver here no problem (the saving you make from not paying VAT normally covers the postage). www.surfstore.co.uk
You will definitely need some big gear but when the wind blows here it really blows and you will not want to miss out on that. I weigh about 100kgs and am massively overpowered on my 5.75m sail when the shamal is blowing.
Super7, if you are using a 15.5 and even need a bigger one, it seems that conditions are around 10 knots or so...:( Just like you i am a big guy, around 105kg, so a bit of wind would not hurt. I want to ask you one more question on where to buy equipment. From hearing you i would conclude that i would need big slalom/course racing equipment. Should i bring equipment from europe, or can i also buy it in Qatar and is that economical?
I am a first timer at this, so please forgive me if I am a little awkward. I will be arriving in the next few days and will be in Qatar for the next 12 months. I would like very much to find out what activities are available, is there anyone else from my country Argentina working in Qatar, what are everyoneÂ´s impressions of the place, how is working life foe women, what is the pace pf work, etc. Any tips, suggestions? What should I bring with me that I wont be able to find there? My time is running short, I leavr for Doha on the 13th!
My only kite at present is 15.5m. Am thinking of buying a bigger one though (i'm quite a big guy)
Super7, what size (kite) are you usually on?
yeah when its windy I still windsurf. Its just kiting gives you a greater range
Thanks Butterfly and Super7. My family will come to Doha somewhere in the beginning of March. My wife learned how to windsurf a few summers ago and i have been hooked to the sport for over 20 years now. I used to compete in all kinds of events in various disciplines in many places over the world, (also Tarifa Butterfly..). The past few years i have not been able to go out on the water much, but i hope that will change again in Doha. For some strange reason i can not switch to kite surfing. Windsurfing is the sport i love. Even my friends who have switched, go out on windsurf gear when it gets windy and waves build. I very much hope to see you out on the water soon!
I'm into windsurfing and do a fair bit here. The conditions can be excellent but unfortunately windy days are few and far between. However, in the summer the shamal wind blows and it makes for fantastic conditions.
The shallow water is excellent as it is warm and easy to rest if you need a break. The most popular places to windsurf are near the intercon hotel.
Messaieed is not a great place at all.
I would suggest that you consider taking up kitesurfing if you want to get out on the water. It is easy to learn if you are a windsurfer and you can get planing in much lighter winds. I started last year and enjoy it a lot.
There is quite a big kitesurfing community here and equipment is cheap to buy. If you want info on where to buy it let me know.
See you out on the water
Hellooooo, buterflyyyyyy hereeeeee!
When are you coming to Doha? Right now you get a windy day every now and again, but it the warmer months windsurfing is imposible. I haven't done any windsurfing in Qatar, only in the atlantic coast of spain, so I don't really know how fast you can go here. Waters are very shallow. I think around Mersaieed is ok, wind-wise, and the sealine resort rents equipment (i think, don't take my word for it)
I haven't seen any shop that sells equipment, but I haven't done any research either. There must be at least one somewhere.
Hellooooo.... Anybody out there...?
