The United Arab Emirates dived into a three-day water sports event on Thursday.
A hydroflight event (above), where athletes perform stunts on water jet propulsion devices, kicked off the Dubai Watersports Festival in Al Shorooq Beach.
The multi-sport festival comes as the country resumes sporting events after they were brought to a sudden halt in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The festival features water sports such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, sailing, kayak fishing and kitesurfing.
The events will be held across various locations, including Kite Beach, Nessnass Beach, Al Shorooq Beach and the Persian Gulf.
