KTA Vietnam Update

2010 is up and running and so of course is the KTA tour as we head for round three at Mui Ne in Vietnam at the end of this month.

Mui Ne is a well established kiteboard destination in Asia and one with a reputation for regular strong wind conditions, so be sure to also pack your small kites if you are thinking of heading there to compete.


The KTA Vietnam will be running from the 28th – 31st January on the beachfront that runs between the C2Sky kite centre at the Sunshine Beach Resort and Sankara. C2Sky are the KTA’s main local organiser and are the people who can help you out with accommodation, transfers and even visas. Their details are and information is all listed on the Vietnam tour stop page for you. Sankara are the events headline local sponsor for the Vietnam round and will also play a key part during the event providing the parties and hospitality for the riders.

The morning of the 28th of Jan will be registration time, but it anticipated that there will be a very strong turn out in Mui Ne so make sure that you register here online to secure your chance to compete. If the numbers reach the max limits as they are expected then the afternoon of the 28th will kick-off with pre-eliminator rounds for all the non-seeded riders joining the KTA Vietnam event.

So plan ahead and we look forward to seeing you at the end of the month and seeing if anyone new will emerge to challenge our current KTA tour leaders, which are –
