Saturday, Nov. 28th (Mui Ne Day 4)

  • Another 9am start for our third day of kiteboarding lessons.
  • Next step is to add the board into the equation.  We both got into the water with our instructors and practiced body dragging with one hand holding the board.  Then practiced board retrieval, both upwind and downwind.  Finally, we attempted getting up on the board.  We both stood up a few times for a second or two…. and we also both got launched a few times.  All in all a successful day.
  • Returned to the hostel and decided to check out one of the few sights in Mui Ne: the red sand dunes. Hopped on our motorbikes and arrived just in time for sunset.  It was a bit touristy, quite a few people and local children everywhere selling magic carpet rides, but the view was spectacular which more than made up for it.
  • We were exhausted after a couple late nights and full days of kiteboarding in the sun, so we called it a night shortly after returning to the hostel.
