Tips for you
I started kite boarding lessons two seasons ago in Mui Ne, Vietnam. Quite frustrating due to the shear numbers of kites in the water. I moved onto Boracay Island in the Philippines where I completed the Beginner Package. Same experience with crowded water, surly and jaded instructors, over-priced accommodations. I decided that Thailand must be better, so I signed up for yet another Beginner Package in Hua Hin. At least the water wasn't inundated with other kite boarders, but the wind was inconsistent at best. At the end of all these instruction packages, I was able to get up briefly on the board, and that's about it. I was ready to throw-in the towel and go back to wind surfing. Through word-of-mouth I learned that there was small group of dedicated kite boarders in Kampot, Cambodia. And a certified instructor operating out of the Villa Vedici guest house. So off I went. Paradise found! Flat water (no pounding waves to deal with!), consistent and predictable wind, easy launch area and free from crowds! It's not hard to see why they call it "Secret Beach". Nobody there except for kite boarders (10 at the most on weekends) and the occasional passing fishing boat. But the best part, is that by my second lesson from Villa Vedici, I learned how to go up-wind, which is the critical skill to master before the fun begins with kite boarding. Soon after Villa Vedici had me jumping and learning other maneuvers. I just can't say enough about Villa Vedici kite boarding. It's still a small enough community that you instantly become part of the Cambodian Kite Surfing clan. If you're considering learning the sport, you will learn far faster, spend less money, and have a much easier and faster learning experience if you choose Villa Vedici in Kampot, Cambodia.
