Mangaf in Kuwait is an exposed sandbar break. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the west southwest. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southeast. The sandbar breaks offer lefts and rights. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Take care of - Rocks.
