      So you're saying the shallow little Gulf's got waves worth trying?

      I haven't seen any.

        I haven't been there but there was an article in the Herald about that around a year ago. Some westerners arrested for surfing. Having too much fun, not enough clothes, that sort of thing.

          Dubai on Empty

          Its skyline erupting from the desert in just two decades, Dubai is a cautionary tale about what money can’t buy: a culture of its own. After gorging on the Viagra of easy credit, the emirate has the world’s tallest building, the world’s most expensive racetrack, and a financial crisis to match. From the Western mercenaries and Asian drones who maintain the gaudy show to 100-odd families who are impervious to any economic reality, A. A. Gill discovers that no one truly belongs in Dubai, where the legacy of oil has made everything worthless.

            I saw that article, it's very good. Very hard hitting, but I think basically correct.
