In November 2017 I had my first kiting experience at WindChimes. After some research, this school was recommended by a friend of mine who has been kiting for years. I took some lessons for three days and was thrilled, even I was not able to kite yet. The skilled, friendly and helpful instructor togehter with the friendly and helpful team created a warm atmosphere that made the experience and stay much more than "just" about learning to kite. So we decided to go back, this year for a longer stay in November/December. And it has been a great experience, with the same lovely atmosphere with a very helpfull team and great instructors (I was lucky to experience two). The feeling of getting up and kiting after quite some trying and patient and good guidance is hard to describe. So thanks to the whole WindChimes team - I am quite sure I will come back to kite, as the service is excellent.

Took 7 hours of lessons at Windchimes. Wished I could have stayed longer. Nhut, my instructor, was very nice and adjusted the lessons for the fact that I had taken a few hours some years ago and was not a pure beginner. School has top notch gear and safety equipment, special sunglasses, life vests and helmet. The lessons are the same price all over the beach and WindChimes is the oldest school in Mui Ne. Trang, the owner, is an avid kitesurfer who left a job in robotics in the Silicon Valley and stops by on a regularly to share stories about his experience learning to kite and about Mui Ne.

Best place to chill, kite or just have a beer and enjoy watching other kiters. Windchimes were the only kiting spot willing to accommodate us for a minimal fee to launch and land (USD5 for the day) Instructors are on top of they're game. Prices there will be hard to beat (good luck trying) We had the privilege of meeting the owner, Giovanni. He was to point out a few short comings in my technique and gave us some pointers to improve. All for free and for the love of kiting. Theres plenty of space, and loads of gear. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I did the 10 hour serious package and had a great time. My instructor, Tam, was patient and knowledgeable, and by the end of the second day i was just about riding. By the end of the third day I was riding pretty comfortably and starting to head upwind. service was great and there were always people on hand to help launch and land and inflate kites. Would highly recommend!!

I took my kitesurfing class with windchimes last week. It was a great experience. My instructor is very patience even though the conditions are difficult. The staff is very helpful and the manager, Trang, is very knowledgeable and watchful. He shared his experience with me and let me know areas of improvement. Great school, great staff. Highly Recommended.
