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, and we also teach on the main Ham Tien kite beach. 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. The main Ham Tien beach provides flatter conditions, with chop and small waves, and is also perfect for beginners or for those just becoming independent. 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.
