Searching For Shade Chapter 2: Skating in Oman

brightcove.createExperiences(); Words by Roberto Aleman Photos by Roberto Alegria Spots abound in Oman, and most of them are gleaming marble. I think we got kicked out only once in a fortnight. All of the Omani people were very friendly and surprisingly accommodating when we were skating in front of their businesses or homes -- they just enjoyed watching something they had never seen before. The city of Muscat is blooming and the skate spots pop up at a similar pace. The old town by the harbour is an incredible cluster of narrow streets and local shops with scents, colours and an atmosphere that I will never forget. The food was incredible, and the beer appeared just at the right time. In Islamic countries you must respect the rules and two such rules were not to drink in public or to remove your shirt. It is seen as a lack of respect. We wished that we could have had the time to skate more spots, but we had to leave many unconquered due to the extreme heat and the consequent lack of energy! See more photos below from Roberto Alegria Ben Raemers got hurt early on the trip but he did get this boardslide down a triple set hubba The crew rarely got kicked out and the locals really embraced what they were doing out there!

SEARCHING FOR THE SHADE - CHAPTER 1: SKATING IN OMAN

By Roberto Aleman Sometimes you have to pay to play; the price of sharing a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the mystical land of Oman was enduring temperatures hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement – literally. Eniz Fazliov, Daan Van Der Linden, Harry Lintell and Ben Raemers stepped up to the plate and traded sweat for experience during a week cruising the sultanate. With practically every country from north to south and east to west already explored, Oman continued to be one of those countries which for some reason no skate team has ever visited – until now. We arrived late at night and already the scorching heat was a system shock. We knew that during the night the temperature was as good as it would get, so we didn‘t even want to guess how it would be during the day. Come morning, we awoke to 45ºC heat that was much more intense than we could have imagined. It was hard to leave the hotel and even breathing outside proved challenging, it was like inhaling fire! That said, we were all excited to be in a country we had never been to before, and felt honoured to be the first ones with the privilege of exploring it. Soon a decision was made; we would rent a generator and skate at night. To be honest, in the end it didn't really matter. The days were too long, the nights were too short and the burning heat was everywhere, all the time. In the end we decided to skate all day with breaks in between to go to the beach or to an oasis in the desert! Check back on Thursday, August 28, for the second chapter of Searching For The Shade, Volcom in Oman. Thanks Red Bull for the support.

Daan bet he could frontside noseslide this rail first go. Word is bond and he collected some Omani Rials. In a little shopping centre we found these perfect black marble ledges to film lines on. Despite the heat, Eniz Fazliov skated the ledges non-stop until he was exhausted and locked this fakie nosegrind mid-line. Eniz skated every spot we went to. This hubba at the city's main stadium was perfect for this gnarly noseblunt. I do not know who bought the plastic guns, but at any time of the day you could end up with an arrow to the forehead. Just like Eniz. At every spot we went to in Muscat, a big crowd of people would gather to watch. I guess it's not a particularly common sight to have a bunch of Westerners jumping down handrails. Harry can adapt to all kinds of terrain, from the most technical spots to the gnarliest ones. He didn't want to leave this spot without leaving his mark on it, so after a few tries he stomped this flip crooks. Harry was one of the riders who skated the most during the tour. He filmed moves at every single spot we went to, and refused to leave this handrail without making this nosegrind. Like a big oasis in the desert, this is like the Central Park of Muscat. Thankfully, it is full of spots and Harry put down this switch flip on one such gem. Roberto came but had an injured ankle the whole time. He still managed to walk on water, however.
