Looks like Kite Heaven to me!

Postby Toby » Tue Sep 25, 2012 10:26 pm

to the right is "the world"...lots of small islands...and so far nothing build on it from what I know...
so, lots of flat water in between...must be an amazing location to kite!

Anyone went there already?

Looks really neat. Hope they've designed it with the rising sea levels in mind.

I heard nobody buying because the stagnate water makes it smell like sewer.
But, that's just second hand to me...

from reading, various places over the last few years:
1. Failed property development
2. Stagnant water
3. No wind
4. 50C temperatures
5. Depressing environment from a human rights/economic freedom point of view
6. Convenient location between Iran, Saudi, Israel etc. -maybe good fireworks displays?
Looks interesting from outer space though...

Yep, I used to live in Dubai. I learnt to kite there. Very little wind. I had a 16m north rebel. Most kite with 15-21m kites. Oman is a lot better!
