Ride the Dubai Waves!

When the weekend comes around, most of us put on the sunblock, pack up our bags and get ready to hit the beach for a good tanning session! Ever think how else we can make use of our beautiful beaches? Every try sailing? Snorkeling? Or even water skiing? If you aren’t super active and would prefer to go for something a little more laid pack, we suggest paddle surfing!  With many outlets and surf academy’s along the shoreline that can help you go surfing in Dubai, The Modern East has put together a list of our favorite spots to test out the waters over the weekend.

Surf House Dubai
