“Great windsurfing equipment, friendly staff”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

While a little more expensive than other rentals in Mui Ne, it's definitely worth it! The windsurfing equipment is so much better, the instructor's are extremely good and the staff is super friendly and helpful.

“Awesome kite surfing experience at Jibe's Beach Club”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

I was in Mui Ne with my colleague in April 2013. The main reason for Mui Ne was kite surfing, we did not have any experience with kite surfing prior to Mui Ne but were eager learning it within the next days.
After comparing some of the kite schools I met Drew at Jibe's Beach Club who convinced me in just a few moments with his arguments about focusing first on the fundamental security procedures with only controlling the kite before trying it together with the board.
We appreciated the exciting and competent theory lessons in the morning. This was the perfect preparation for the exercises in the water and covered also a lot of tips and tricks. It was a great atmosphere during the whole stay. The barbecue we joined one evening was very delicious and absolutely recommendable.

“outstanding”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

i came to mui ne to learn kitesurfing and was recommended Drew from Jibes Beach Club. this is a small school and there are many others but i still waited 2 days for lessons because it came so highly recommended and i didn't want to chance it.

I'm glad i did because the service was exceptional. I was taught by Drew (and was later told by a few sources he's possibly one of the best instructors in mui ne), but got advice from others there as well- they all seriously know their field. Perfect english speakers, a huge focus on safety, fair prices, and only charged for time on the water. I already have some experience with kiting and landboarding so obviously it took less time to learn on the water. But some schools will drag out your learning to make more money out of you - not this one. They move you on as soon as your competent and safe in a particular skill.

It's a great little boutiqy school with an excellent restaurant, shop, and good choice of rental equipment. if you want to try something else (like i did) they've got it all, and they only charge for the time you use it for.

fully recommend their bbq on saturdays as well.

“great windsurfing lessons and good food!”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Based on the lonely planet, i went there to get some windsurfing lessons as a beginner!
I couldn't have wished for more!make sure you ask for Math.Ok its a bit expensive but you find better teacher around here!If the weather conditions are not adequate he will tell you rather than wasting your time and money!
You can also get kite surfing lesson,surf boards and body boards are also available to play with.
The cafe offers a great range of food, the club sandwich is exquisite! The atmosphere is very relaxed and people are very friendly!
If I am ever back in Mui ne, I'll definitely go back there!

“Great Kiteschool with awesome instructors”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

As we stayed a couple of days in Mui Ne we wanted to try kite surfing for the first time. After checking several schools, we decided to start at Jibe's, which was the absolutely right decision. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. We were lucky to get Drew as an instructor. He introduced us to the basics of kite surfing. Furthermore, he is a patient teacher and a great person.

At Jibe's you don't pay up front, like most of the other schools, which means that you will only have lessons when the conditions are good. Safety is a big issue. All the material is in good condition and is checked frequently. Other schools might take you in the water sooner. But that is not really what you want if the conditions aren't good or you don't control the kite yet.

Besides the lessons with the kite you also get free theoretical sessions in the morning and the hours with the kite are charged extremely fair. Altogether we can highly recommend Jibe's kite school.
