Surfing – it’s one of those awesome sports that we all want to get into, but it can be tricky to get good at. Responsible for some of the most envious ‘surfer dude’ images from the beaches of the UAE, we’ve compiled a list of surfers who show us how it’s done when it comes to some over-the-top wave action.

The UAE has never been known as a hub for surfing enthusiasts but over time it has gained its fair share of followers. Check out our favourite surfer dudes and dudettes from in and around the UAE and follow them on their aquatic adventures.
