SURFING MUI NE
Yes Mui Ne does have waves, don't expect too much but if you're just looking to surf when you're not kiting then there are breaks to entertain you. Perfect for beginners and intermediates to have fun and improve on their style.
Long boards and Mini Mals or just something with a little extra volume will increase your wave count here. When larger systems build up get ready for something more serious.
20-25 degrees. The sea conditions in Mui Ne during no wind times are beautifully flat, getting choppy when the wind speed increases. When the swell picks up the shore break can be challenging for beginners.
Kite schools generally will cancel lessons if the shore break gets too large (less kiters on the water), but for most kitesurfers in Mui Ne this is where the fun really begins.
