Mui Ne has been known as one of Asia's top kiting destinations for many years, and with good reason! With an average of 227 windy days a year, why would you spend your precious kite holiday anywhere else?! Source is located on Ganh Beach, to the East of the busy Ham Tien kite beach and just outside of the tourist strip area. Ganh Beach provides our riders and students with a wide, and gently sloping sandy beach, free of obstacles, and perfect for getting started, improving your skills in the waves, or honing your latest trick. Morning time means lighter winds and small waves, with flat water in between, while afternoon and evening ensure that more advanced riders can enjoy the kickers, and strapless riders the larger waves out back. On a typical high season day, wind speeds averge 18-25kts, and usual kite sizes range from 7m - 10m for average sized riders. Water temperature is warm all year round, meaning no need for neoprene here :) a light spring suit, or just a long sleeved rash vest will do just fine. The sun is strong, however, and we recommend investing in some good quality, high factor spf, a hat and sunglasses for the water.

The Destination

Mui Ne is located close to Phan Thiet city, in Binh Thuan Province. Drive time from Ho Chi Minh City is 4.5 hours. It is a small fishing town turned watersport paradise, with endless stretches of white sandy coastline enjoyed by kitesurfers, windsurfers, surfers and beach goers alike. Source Kiteboarding is based on Ganh Beach, at the eastern side of the town. Here we benefit from a lower number of hotels and resorts, meaning the beach is less crowded for our students and riders. The kite conditions are second to none in this part of Vietnam, and we enjoy an average of 227 windy days per year...what more can we ask for?? Winds are strong in the season from October-March, and kite sizes flown are usually from 7m to 10m. Mui Ne is a typical small Vietnamese town, with several fresh markets, a multitude of street food stalls and cheap local restaurants, and plenty of tourist shops providing all the facilities and services you could need to enjoy your stay. Nightlife is busy during the high season (Oct-Mar) with almost nightly parties and events in the small strip of bars and clubs. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, with most of the clientele being surfers, kiters and water lovers. There's plenty to do for non-kiters too...with shopping, spas, eating out and excursions available at low cost.
