I'm not sure where to start, should I start by saying that the owner Son is such an amazing guy, friendly and very helpful that during each kitesuring session you have on the water he will make sure that you are having a blast, or maybe should I start with the manager Jeff who's very friendly and will flood you with advises and tips to find your way around town and get the most out of your stay and not to forget his advises all around the center for people looking to improving their kiting skills... The kite surfing instructors are knowledgeable, safety conscious and all round awesome people. The assistance on the beach launching and landing the kite meant I could make the most of each session. This place exceeded all my expectations, from the local restaurant serving delicious food, to the rooms that are sparkly clean and comfy. This place deserve more than just 5 stars, so if you are like me addicted to kitesuring, good vibes, friendly and awesome people then look no further as this is the place where you want to be for your next kitesuring holidays. . Well done Son! You have created something very special and I look forward to seeing you next season

Well, what an amazing trip! Let's start with the before. Jeff, Manager Extraordinaire, fielded my piles of questions with the patience of a saint and with expertise. This meant that accommodation, transfers from the airport and scooter ready for arrival all sorted. Great vibes on arrival. Wind blowing, checked in, and a few seconds to the beach. There was only an hour of sunlight left and I was super impressed that someone jumped up and grabbed my kite to pump it up, someone else set up my lines so all I had to do was get some gear on and get straight on the water. This set the tone of the holiday and it continued right throughout. It's a credit to Jeff, and Son, the Owner, to have created such an impressive sociable, friendly and supportive environment. I kited the next 11 days in a row. Was a little happy to have a few light days, and Jeff arranged a few trips around the place. Off to Mui Ne for a few days, up to Turtle Beach where we had a beautiful beach to ourselves. Absolutely stunning, and heaps of fun cruising around on scooters. As the lagoon is tidal make sure you check the tides in advance. Some days the lagoon fills up by 8am, other days not until the afternoon. Not a problem, as who can kite all day anyway. The wind blew for sure, most days I'd be on a 6m or 8m, 20-40 knots. There was a day on a 5m and one epic day where I had plenty of power on a buzzy wee 3.5m. What a laugh! What I love about the kitespot is that you can play around in the flat water of the huge lagoon for a while then pop out to the waves for some more fun. The food is really nice at the Kite Center. Great breakfast included, always with smiles from all the lovely kitchen staff. Rooms are great, super comfy beds, immaculately cleaned. I was really impressed with the beach boys who were very attentive and always helping out with not only launching and landing, but also when they could see anyone struggling in the wind with lines or folding up kites, they'd be there to assist. If you're looking at learning, they have top notch instructors and if you're lucky you might get a couple of photos taken by Jeff, who's a bit of a legend behind a lens. Clearly I was having too much fun, so my 12 day trip turned into a 3 week trip. Epic kiting, amazing people, awesome vibe, great food and so many laughs. Such a hard place to leave, but I leave with amazing memories, a whole bunch of new buddies and a determination to return! Thanks Jeff and Son, I shall be back.

Phan Rang Kite Center is a fantastic place that combines everything that is necessary to get addicted to kiting as a sport and Vietnam as a country. Where should I begin? Okay let’s start with the kite conditions: Highly stable wind throughout a long season of four months, a lagoon spot with flat water and some nice waves behind the reef. The water is nicely warm (although a thin shorty is recommended for longer sessions). Due to the tide the lagoon could be completely without water for a couple of hours. Either you are a little bit patient and wait for the water or you could walk out and kite behind the reef. The walk is about 600 meters. You could time your sessions that you walk out while the water is rising, kite outside and use the flat water on your way back to the beach. The area Phan Rang: Although Vietnam is a very touristic country you feel a little bit beside the worned-out track when you spend some time in this part of the country. There are not many tourists besides the Kitercommunity. As soon as you leave the direct surrounding of the lagoon (where some restaurants are prepared for western tourists) you won’t find any touristic infrastructure at all. You have great opportunities to eat every day in real Vietnamese restaurants for a really small amount of money while you get an authentic glimpse on daily Vietnamese life. If you spend a longer time here and really miss some western food, you could get some either in the Kitecenters along the lagoon or in the city center of Phan Rang. There are no classic sightseeing hotspots in this area. If you are tired from kiting or waiting for the water rising you could do some worthwhile trips with the scooter to some nice waterfalls or/and along the coast. Phang Rang Kite Center (Staff and People): Besides the unbeatable kite conditions and the authentic surrounding the staff and the people at Phan Rang Kite Center make your stay outstanding. The manager Jeff is very welcoming and helps you with any question you have. He is able to give every single guest the feeling that he treats them with extraordinary attention. The service at the center is very good. You get assistance for launching and landing all the time and even in busy situations the Beach Boys have everything under control and you feel safe. The storage possibilities are good and of course you have fresh water to clean your gear, showers and toilets. The restaurant has fresh and good food, the prices are reasonable and the Service is fast and friendly. The guests are from the worldwide Kitercommunitiy. Besides people from China and Korea (for them the journey to reach this fantastic spot is short) you have people from all over the world. The guests are open and you get in contact with other people quite fast. The Vibes at this place just feel very good.

Very good kite lodge for the price, Jeff makes the difference and is serious, responsive and organized to make logistics easy. Like airport transfer or scooters. Food is basic but good and other options are around. Beach boys are super nice and helpful.
