I don’t know how this question popped into my head, I was thinking about Beach Boys songs, then started thinking about the news headlines of the day I guess, I don’t know.
But anyway. How much surfing is there in the Muslim world? Are there any really great surf locations in any Muslim countries?
It occurs to me that I don’t know anything about surfing in the Mediterranean at all- whether it be southern Europe , Mediterranean Asia, or North Africa. Do the Mediterranean beaches get waves suitable for surfing? What about the Altantic coast of Morocco?
The western, eastern, southern coasts of the Arabian Peninsula? Iran or Pakistan in the Gulf or Arabian Sea? Musilm areas of India? Bangladesh? Indonesia?
