2019-09-03, Kitesurf in Vietnam/Mui Ne

During my stay in Vietnam I decided to try to learn kitesurfing and i can say it was the best decision of my trip yet.

Everything was perfect and I actually don’t know how many days I overstayed just because of kitesurfing. I started as a total beginner who never hold a kite in his life what wasn’t a big deal.

The most important part for me is that everyone gets his/her own personal instructor so you can find your learning pace and make appointments when it fits you and the wind conditions. My instructor was Dean, who I can honestly recommend. if I had the choice I’d pick dean again. Dean made me challenge myself and we ended up with a quite fast learning pace. Not redoing every exercise x-times was very good for keeping me motivated. And the next exercise usually involved the things learned before. But the biggest reward was Standing up on the board in the water just after a couple of hours, I think it were 6 or 7 hours. It really got me hooked!

I can’t really say a lot about the equipment because I am obviously not an expert but dean used the same board and kite for surfing as well, so it can’t be too bad and I can say I felt safe all the time.

Thanks to Dean for this amazing experience and lessons, hope to see you again sometime! Cheers, Lukas

Best kite experience!!!
I was very happy to learn kitesurfing with Petar, who gave me confidence and feeling save all the time. He teached very clear and explained every step very well. His calm and souvereign way of teaching helped me a lot to get on the board. Everyday in the morning he informed me, what time would be the best to do a lession, depending on wind- and waveconditions - that was very comfortable and helpful. It was a great time with a loooot of fun - thank you Petar!

Amazing Teacher and good vibe at the school.
I have previously had 4 other teachers in other countries, but Petar was by far the best teacher I have ever had. He saw what I was doing incorrect (which none of the others had noticed), and he also explained not only what I should do differently but also how (how does the body position change, and what actual physical move should you do). Petar is by far the best teacher I have ever had.


Vietnam

Location

Streets in Mui Ne, Vietnam is famous for its crowded, hectic streets, and the rules on these streets are a bit different than western tourists may be used to. The village of Mui Ne is a small fishing village on a cape between two famous kite beaches - Malibu and Mui Ne bay (Ham Tien). An 15km long coastal road runs parallel to the kite beach, passing through Ham Tien and Mui Ne village. On this street you can find everything you need: markets, restaurants, hotels, hostels, pharmacies, hospitals, souvenir shops etc.

Wind

Mui Ne beach for kitesurfing:
1.5km long sandy beach. Side, Side-Onshore wind (NE). Wind strength from 15-30 knots

Malibu beach for kitesurfing:
Approximately 1km long sandy beach, side on, onshore wind (NE). Wind strength from 15-30 knots

Phan Rang beach for kitesurfing:
Situated 150km from Mui Ne, with a 1km long coral/sandy beach. Side, Side Onshore wind (NE), 15 – 40 knots

Side Shore is the safest condition!

Water

Temperature of the water is approx. 25 °C

Mui Ne beach for kitesurfing:
Choppy water with shore break, small to big, depending on the day. The spot where we are stationed at MANA Kite Center (Unique Hotel) is one of the widest parts of the beach in Mui Ne. As a result, you will have plenty of space to take your first lesson with us and feel safe to set up, land and launch your kite without any obstacles around. It's a perfect spot for beginners and advanced riders alike. Choppy water in combination with a shore break can seem a bit challenging in the beginning but passing through your lesson plan step by step guided by your certified IKO instructor means you won't have any problems getting the experience you need to become an independent kitesurfer, riding safely for himself and others on the water.

Malibu beach for kitesurfing:
Malibu is a wave spot with nice flat water in between the waves. Waves can vary in size from 0.5m to 3m, depending on the day. The beach at Malibu is wide and sandy, without obstacles, and is also a great place to take your first steps into kiting. It's also a perfect kite spot for wave riding, freeride and big air. At Malibu, we are stationed in the beautiful Nam Chau resort, at Source Kiteboarding – the Vietnamese home of North Kiteboarding.

Phan Rang beach for kitesurfing:
The spot is a lagoon with perfect flat water and amazing waves breaking outside the lagoon. To have enough water for safe kiting in the lagoon it is necessary to have a high tide, and for that reason that we wait for a full or new moon to organise the trip to Phan Rang. Perfect spot for beginners, freestyle, wave ride, big air, free ride.

Questions & Answers

  • Why Kite Camp with us?

    We are passionate about all water sports especially kiteboarding. We are IKO Certified and experienced instructors with a high level of teaching and riding. We would love to share our experience and knowledge with you.

  • What languages are spoken?

    We speak English, Italian, Portuguese and Croatian.

  • Transfer from airport to Mui Ne?

    Private Car:

    After a long flight if you feel like avoiding the complication of taking buses to Ho Chi Minh City bus station and then to Mui Ne, we can arrange a private car for you!

    Depending on how many passengers, and your personal needs, we can provide you with the perfect type of car for your transfer. The price for one way journey is between 80-100$, depending on car type. We can offer a normal 5 seater sedan car, a larger 7 seater 4x4, or a mini bus with 16 seats. The minibus is the best option if you are coming with your family or friends, or if you are travelling with large luggage, or boardbags.

    On your way to Mui Ne you can stop several times to have a break to eat, use bathroom facilities or just enjoy the beautiful scenery for a moment and take some photos! In the end our driver will take you directly to your accommodation safely and without delay. All of our vehicles are modern and are equipped with AC and comfortable seats.

    Luxury Bus:

    There is also an option of taking a luxury bus from Ho Chi Minh City to Mui Ne. It is a 16 seater bus which takes you directly from Tan Son Nhat Airport to your accommodation in Mui Ne. It is a more economical option than a private car if you are travelling alone. Price is 15$ one way. You can book it via this link: https://www.vietnambustickets.com/saigon-airport-muine.aspx#mui-ne

    Check their online timetable for departure times, but be aware that after you land at Tan son Naht Airport, it can take approx. 1-2h to exit the airport. If you have chosen the Visa ''Fast Track'' option it will be faster.

    Sleeping Bus:

    Sleeping buses depart almost every hour during the day from Ho Chi Minh City centre, so it’s convenient to choose a departure time that best works for you. The last departure is around 10:30pm and it takes about 5 hours to travel from HCMC to Mui Ne. Because of the long ride, the bus usually stops at a rest stop where you can have a meal, take a break, or use the restroom. There are two types of bus: sleeper bus and seated bus. Normally the buses are clean, tidy and comfortable. You will get a blanket and a small bottle of water included in the price. AC is usually set at around 20 degrees celsius so it can feel a bit chilly on board. We recommend you to take pair of socks and some long sleeves or pants for the bus in case you are cold.

    These buses have two floors and 40 beds. The passengers can rest, sleep, and have room to relax. However, keep in mind that these buses are designed for the Vietnamese, so the length of the bed is around 1.6 meters or 5.2 feet in height. If you are a tall person, you may not be able to stretch out completely. The ticket price is around 7 USD one way.

    To get the sleeping bus to Mui Ne from Ho Chi Minh City, first you will have to reach District 1 where the bus station is. You have two options to do this:

    1. take a private Taxi (10-15$) or
    2. take the yellow tourist shuttle bus from the airport. Tickets cost around 40,000vnd/1.50$ per person. If you have big board bags, check first if the bus driver will accept them!

    To arrive at your accomodation via sleeping bus, just let the driver know the exact name and address of your hotel or guesthouse and he will drop you off right in front of it, or as close as possible!

  • What about Phan Rang?

    TRIP TO PHAN RANG:

    We organise a trip to the next kite spot (150km from Mui Ne) - Phan Rang, My Hoa beach. The trips are organised according to the conditions of wind and tide at the time.

    Transfer from Mui Ne to Phan Rang and back it costs 40$ per person. Additional payments are required for use of beach facilities, accommodation, food, drinks, waterfall excursion, lessons, rentals etc.

    Accommodation Options:

    • stay with us directly on the kite spot
    • book a room in city of Phan Rang (17km from My Hoa kite spot)
  • Do I need suncream?

    Get the best sun cream possible and we recommend to use zinc for the face, as the sun is quite strong

  • Do I need sunglasses in the water?

    It is recommended to kite with sunglasses if you have sensitive eyes. We recommend to get one pair with a floating strap. It’s possible to buy them in KBC station where we are staying.

  • Do I need wetsuit?

    The air and water are quite warm, personally we don’t use wetsuits but we use shorties in case of irritated skin from the harness and sand.

  • Nearest Hospital?

    5min walking from our kite beach in Mui Ne

  • Do I need mosquito protection?

    There are not many mosquitos but we recommend to get yourself some mosquito protection, for example "Autan Tropical Repellent."

  • Do I need to rent a motor bike?

    The most common method of transportation in Vietnam is the motorbike. Most visitors rent a motorbike, which costs around 5$ per day for an automatic or manual bike with a 110cc-125cc engine. Although it is a fun and easy way to move around, our suggestion is that you should only rent a motorbike if you have experience, an International Drivers Permit, and are confident to drive in Vietnam. If not, it would be safer to walk around or use a taxi. There is also the possibility of being stopped at a police check point if you do decide to rent a motorbike. But don't worry, if you decide to grab a motorbike to get around we will arm you with some useful tips and tricks to avoid hassle with the police.

  • Where to eat and Party?

    There are so many choices in Mui Ne when it comes to street food stalls and restaurants. We know plenty of places which we can recommend to you, depending on your taste and budget., but there always more delicious spots to discover! There is lots of tasty, cheap Vietnamese food but also many other choices from other Asian cuisines, and also Western style food. There are some dedicated vegetarian and vegan places but most of restaurants will have vegeterian/vegan offerings on the menu.

    Mui Ne is a fishing village so fresh seafood is very common here, Pho (Vietnamese soup) and Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) are must tries at one of many local places - Sau Sau, where a lovely Vietnamese lady serves you delicious street food and on the side a Vietnamese Cafe Sua Da (Coffee with sweet milk and ice). If you need a break from Vietnamese food, you can grab a Kebab, Burger or a Pizza too, at one of Mui Ne's many Western style places, no worries about that!

    A list of some recommended places:

    • Food Court / Dong Vui – Serving all types of cuisine,including vegetarian, Indian, Italian, Vietnamese, Spanish, and a full bar serving craft beers and cocktails.
    • Bia Hoi – A local place, famous for crocodile meat served in a delicious white sauce, where you get your own BBQ and grill on the table. The ultimate BBQ experience with amazing local food. For carnivores only!
    • Tropic Hostel – Serving Serbian cuisine, including amazing burgers with home-made buns (Pljeskavica) and all kinds of different Balkan specialities.
    • Sau Sau – street food.
    • LuBu – Vietnamese cafe with a nice relaxed ambience, perfect for breakfast and first morning coffees.

    Nightlife in Mui Ne is located in a fairly compact area, comprising hotel bars, late-night restaurants, and chill-out lounges set along Mui Ne Beach. Exuding a relaxed ambience, these establishments feature charming interiors, friendly service, and not forgetting lots of booze and food at affordable prices – a perfect combination for a fun night out with locals and fellow surfers. Most of Phan Thiet and Mui Ne’s most popular nightlife spots are also great for catching vibrant parties, cultural nights, movie screenings, bonfires, dance performances, and guest DJs from all across Vietnam and many other foreign countries.
