I was so lucky to come across these guys, I can't recommend them enough. They made sure every lesson counted, and didn't consider it time spent if the conditions weren't perfect. Just hanging out with these guys was probably the best experience of my trip :)

The instructors here really care about their customers. They don't want to waste your time or money on inclement weather. While other schools were pushing to charge more hours to their students, the Sankara instructors had the wherewithal to know when the weather conditions were bad and good for instructing. I always felt safe and they take the time to... More

Mui Ne has so many kite surfing schools it's really hard to work out which to go with. I settled on Sankara after reading some glowing reviews and was so glad I did. Steve (owner) is a British guy with loads of experience. His instruction was really clear, he made every session fun and I felt so safe learning with... More

A friend recommended this school to us as we weren't sure who to go with in Mui Ne. And as lonely planet recommends it was the best choice! All the instructors are very clear, patient and funny. At all points we felt as if we were in safe hands and looked after. The instructors are also very very good and... More

I can't recommend Sankara Kitesurfing Academy enough! Fantastic location, excellent equipment and indefatigable, friendly, helpful, fun staff. Not only was I made to feel part of the team, but also part of the Sankara family! Help and advice was continuously given from Steve, Gareth and all the other instructors. Even after my lessons, the 'beach boy' Mr Ho was always... More
