Developers of the surf facility promise a surf pool capable of making 3.3 meter high waves every 90 seconds. All local and international surfers can enjoy the machine powered waves from 12pm, in 55-minute surf sessions that can accomodate up to six riders.

You'll pay 100 AED (27 dollars) for the artificial experience. The quality of the wave is quite good. You can ride left and right surfable waves. Watch how the wave pool pumps waves. There's even a button to control the wave height.

The Wadi Adventure is like surfing in the desert. It also possible to tune and select the size of the waves, whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer. Wave conditions change throughout the day and night surfing sessions are also available for booking.
