Phan Rang kite spot in Ninh Thuan
Asia kitesurf spot in Vietnam
Phan Rang has quickly become one of Vietnam’s most loved kitesurfing spots, with a shallow lagoon making it perfect for learning and practicing tricks, and also waves on the outside of the reef so a bit of everything for everyone! The wind in season is incredibly consistent, and Vietnam has a whole lot to offer other than kiteboarding so you won’t get bored in a hurry here.
The actual kite lagoon is named My Hoa and is about 16km North of Phan Rang itself, and because it hasn’t yet gained the level of exposure as Mui Ne it’s still a relatively quiet kite spot. The locals are less likely to speak English than in the more touristy spots, but they are super welcoming and lovely, the location is stunning as well as being amazing for kitesurfing, and the food is incredible.
Kitesurfing wind conditions in Phan Rang
Phan Rang has wind nearly all year but the main kitesurfing season is from October until April, with the peak being November to March. During this time you can generally expect an average of 20-25 knots, but it can get stronger up to 40 knots semi regularly, so this is definitely a good spot to pack your small kites. If you want to learn or kitesurf in the lagoon you’ll want to avoid the lowest of low tides, as it can get too shallow to be safe, but you can always walk out to the deeper water to kite any time of day regardless of tide. The best bet is to reach out to the local kitesurf schools before you go to check how the tides are. Outside the reef there are some small to medium waves breaking both left and right, and it can occasionally get big and challenging when the wind is strong.
From May until October there is a thermal wind which can work here, but isn’t as reliable and can be affected by storms, so again, it’s better to check with the local schools before organising your trip.
