Mui Ne is quickly becoming a South East Asian Mecca for kiteboarding and windsurfing. Mui Ne has the best conditions in all of Asia for water sports because it has Asia's strongest and most consistent cross-onshore winds and the lowest rainfall in Vietnam. Every day is a perfect day.
The area is often referred to by the water sports industry as "Mui Ne Bay," although the bay is more correctly the "Bay of Phan Thiet" (Phan Thiet is the provincial capital of Binh Thuan Province and lies in the center of the bay). Depths in the bay are irregular, and a bank with depths of less than 5.5m, extends 1.5 miles west of Mui Ne. The true name of Mui Ne Beach is actually "Rang" but the tourist industry refers to it as Mui Ne, after the village on the point.
There are currently about a dozen Kiteboarding centers in Mui Ne and the competition is fierce. Resorts have taken note of the popularity of the sport, and new teaching centers are bound to pop up all over the beach. Just a few years ago you might see just a couple of kites and sails on the water during an afternoon. These days it can be quite a spectacle. Not all kite centers are created equal. There are a lot of inexperienced amateurs with fly-by-night instructors opening new centers at resorts every season. We've made your choice much easier by choosing only the best, certified, and most experienced kite centers.
C2Sky KiteCenter is the ONLY official IKO Center on the beach of Mui ne, boasting many amenities that provide everything needed to make those lessons more safe, fun and enjoyable. Their spacious and chilled centers have a great sociable vibe where riders at all levels are mixing it up sharing tips and advice or just simply sharing stories of their kitesurfing lifestyle.
Having been established in Vietnam since 2005 you can feel rest assured that their vast experience and collective local knowledge will give you nothing less than a first rate service.
All their instructors are fully qualified IKO, or equivalent, with up to date training, thus ensuring that all their students get the important knowledge and know how needed to make them competent and safe riders.
They have a wide range of courses to cater for everybody and anybody dependant on ability, time and budget, with a choice to be taught in a variety of different languages including English, French, German, Dutch, Russian, Spanish, Estonian and of course Vietnamese.
It is also one of the only schools on the beach to have club membership but with it comes an array of facilities to make your time with them a bit more special, taking care of you and all your equipment.

A Note on Safety & Mui Ne Conditions
Medical Emergencies. The nearest hospital is in Phan Thiet, which is about 20 minutes from Mui Ne. Keep in mind, the further away you go to play, the further you are from medical facilities. There are no medical airlifts or speedboats. Kite centers may not have insurance or adequate first aid supplies and training. Don't assume you "they got you covered." Ask questions before you sign up. Serious injuries do happen here.
Swimming. Unfortunately some water sports enthusiasts are careless and ignore the safety of swimmers. Swimmers should not assume that kitesurfers can see or avoid them. Stay clear of launch and landing areas for your own safety. The best time to swim is early hours of the morning or early evening (usually when there are no windsurfers or kiteboarders in the water).
