Wadi Adventure: bodyboarding in the middle of the desert

Three Portuguese bodyboarders have traveled to the United Arab Emirates to enjoy a free bodyboarding session at the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool.


Forget the imprisonment of bodyboard leashes and 3/2mm wetsuits. This is heaven on Earth. Perfect waves, warm water and a perfect-peeling backdoor peak rolling in, every minute.

Three friends, one camera man and five days in the desert. Hugo Pinheiro, Francisco Bessone and Edmundo Veiga have taken their bodyboards to the Wadi Adventure, one of the best artificial waves in the world.

Located at the base of Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain, approximately one hour and a half from Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool is an amazing experience, as you pull ARS moves in the middle of the desert.

Middle East's first man made artificial wave offers a surf pool capable of making a three-meter high waves, in front of a sandy beach.
