Kitesurf­ing with the Wind: Viet­nam

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

If you want a taste of ev­ery­thing in one ac­tiv­ity, kitesurf­ing is just the thing for you: A mix of wake­board­ing, wind­surf­ing, paraglid­ing and more, it’s one big jum­ble of spine-tin­gling sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Plant your feet firmly on the kite­board, clasp the con­trol bar at­tached to the kite, and off you go with the wind. In 2013, a group of six kitesurfed 5,600km across the At­lantic Ocean from the Ca­nary Is­lands to the Turks and Caicos—talk about ex­treme trav­el­ing.

But you don’t have to go quite that far. Mui Ne, a four-hour drive from Saigon, is a ris­ing spot for kitesurf­ing due to its strong cross-on­shore winds and af­ford­able sports pack­ages. Af­ter an hour of kitesurf­ing, sink back into com­fort at the lux­ury re­sort Anan­tara Mui Ne Re­sort and Spa, right next to the beach. Plan to go dur­ing the windier months of De­cem­ber to March if you’re look­ing to catch more speed. Rooms from $1,077 from mrandmrs­smith.com.
