Julien Brout

 

Owner

 

Julien is originally from Normandy in France, but moved to Ireland in 2001 after his studies, where he learnt and started teaching kiteboarding in 2003. Julien is a certified IKO instructor Level 2 and has been travelling around the best spots in the world since then .
He has been working in the hospitality and accommodation business for many years, and used that experience to successfully renovate and develop a popular kite camp in Dakhla (Morocco) and another one in Ireland.
Julien has been involved in the organisation of multiple kitesurfing events and competitions, and is the driving force behind all the team at Source.

Geoffroy Charton

Co Owner


Originally from Embrun in the Southern Alps, Geoffroy has been passionate about board sports from a young age. As a teenager, he moved to Ouakam (Senegal) with his family where he practiced bodyboarding after school, which led him to try kitesurfing on his first visit to Vietnam more than 10 years ago.
As co-owner of a restaurant in France, Geo mastered his passion for cooking, and he is the creative force in our kitchen. Out of work, there is a big chance you will find him on the beach waiting for the next breeze...

 

Siobhan Comerford

Manager / Marketing & Development

Having grown up in the Irish countryside, Siobhan is no stranger to beautiful landscapes. She has an MSc in Tourism Management, and knows this industry inside out, thanks to many years working and studying in the tourism sector. She is a kiter, equestrian enthusiast, an avid reader and, since moving to Vietnam, an English teacher!  When she's not in school, you can find her at Source, beavering away on marketing and development, or on the beach with Rocky...official Source mascot!

Ut

Staff member

Ut Cam Van is originally from the heart of the Mekong Delta, from the town of Can Tho. She grew up in a typical Vietnamese family, harvesting rice from the paddies and living off the land. After getting married, Ut moved to Mui Ne and became part of the fishing community here. She is one of sunniest staff members, with a permanent smile and a positive attitude...no task is too big for her to tackle. Ut has two young sons, who are still in school, and are learning to surf! 

Marina Marutina

Head Kite Instructor

Marina comes originally from Russia and is a total water babe! She is in love with wind and waves and follows the wind around the world wherever she can. Marina is an IKO level 2 instructor with over 6 years of teaching experience. She has seen over 2000 happy students take to the water under her tuition. She is our head instructor here at Source during the busy season, and in the off season in Vietnam, she runs kite camps and boat trips in Egypt, Greece and Morocco. 

Mr Hieu

Motorbike Rental/Maintenance

Mr Hieu is, without doubt, the nicest guy in Mui Ne, always ready to lend a hand where it's needed. He also grew up in the Mekong Delta, and after studying electronics he moved to Mui Ne for work, where he met his wife. Together with their son, they run a small shop and cafe about 1km from Source, and Mr Hieu provides all of our motorbike rentals. Always ready with a joke and a philosophical word, Hieu is a wealth of knowledge about the area, and is well worth sharing a beer with at the bar. 

Rocky

Just like his namesake, Rocky is a fighter and a survivor. He has cheated death 3 times so far in his short life...Most likely to be found hanging around wherever there's food, or chasing motorbikes on the beach. If you see him, give him a cuddle! 

Here at Source, we are very proud of our team and we pick only the best people to join our crew. We believe great staff are key to having happy customers. The welcome at Source is legendary, both in the lodge and on the beach and our people are fun, professional and friendly. Our core staff are profiled on this page, but we welcome fresh seasonal staff to the Source family every year. If you'd like to part of our crew, drop us a line.
