    Description

    Hi Everyone! We are a kitesurf and surf school, in Mui Ne, Vietnam. We are a watersports activity centre, run by a small bunch of French, Irish and local Vietnamese staff, plus our international helper team ;) We are looking for helpers to help us out in the watersports centre...working on the beach!

    We have been open since October 2015 and plan to be here for quite a while more :) We are kitesurfing mad and you can find us on the beach most days...Our lives revolve around our customers and we strive to make sure that everyone who comes to kite with us feels like part of the family. We organise an annual kitesurfing competition, that is one of the biggest in Vietnam, every January.

    Mui Ne is a small fishing village, and a mecca for watersports enthusiasts. The school is located near the old part of the village, close to the market, right on the beach, and walking distance from some of the best street food in town (we can show you where to go ;) ).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As you will be living in the heart of a real Vietnamese village, you will quickly get to see the differences between Vietnamese life and Western life! The villagers are very warm and welcoming, and we have had helpers make some really good Vietnamese friends while staying with us.

    Mui Ne is small, neighbourly and multi cultural, it's a great place to meet people from all over the world, and a great place to learn real Vietnamese life. There are Vietnamese language classes run in the village, and you can really learn about Vietnams ancient and diverse history as well by visiting historic sites in the area.

    You can learn watersports - surf and SUP and have a chance to learn to kitesurf, if you are interested.

    Help

    We are a young, dynamic team and we are looking for people who are as enthusiastic and energetic as us!

    We need help with all the duties of running the watersports centre; in particular: admin duties, welcoming guests, guest relations and customer service, event organisation etc. We also look for helpers with an interest in creating art projects, maintenance or building, photography, video making etc. We are particularly looking for people with some watersports experience - kite, surf or SUP etc. The positions we have available are in the beach shack, helping out with the organisation of the kite/surf/sup lessons and rentals, scheduling, admin, customer care, help on the beach...all duties related to the running of the school :)

    We ask our helpers for 5 hours per day, 5 days per week.

    In exchange we provide meals, as well as spacious accommodation in a dedicated local house (with super fast wifi) just a few minutes from us, in the village, allowing you to really experience Vietnamese life. The rooms are all large, airy rooms, ensuite, and will be shared in busy times with one other helper (good for friends or couples). You also have free wifi

    We also offer helpers the chance to learn our activities including surfing, SUP (free surf and SUP) and kitesurfing (at a discounted rate). We are a young team, and we want anyone who comes to help us to feel very much part of the family, so we ask that helpers commit to a minimum stay of 2 months, as it really helps you to get settled and get to know the village and village life properly :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Mui Ne is the best place in Asia to learn to kite surf and windsurf, and it has really consistent wind from October to March. There are also a couple of nice surf spots, and some really fabulous SUP locations eg in the famous Mui Ne harbour.

    The Sunset SUP is one of the best ways to chill on your day off :)

    There are plenty of places to go and things to see on your down time, loads of fabulous street food options, beaches, temples, and there's even a cinema in Phan Thiet (20mins away) that shows english movies if you're feeling really homesick ;)

    Transport here is mainly by scooter or bicycle. There is also a local bus service and plenty of taxis available

    We expect our helpers to be positive, enthusiastic and energetic about life! We want you to feel happy and relaxed while you stay with us, and transmit that positive energy to our guests and customers!
