Kitesurfing and windsurfing in the Alps? This is actually possible on the Silvaplana and Heid lakes. Various suppliers offer diverse courses, the optimal equipment and unlimited fun on the water.

Surf Mecca of Switzerland

If you have ambitions for the Americas Cup, then a windsurf over Lake Heid is recommended as a good starting point. Surfboards and wetsuits can be rented on site. Courses support and consolidate windsurfing skills and can be booked by appointment.

Wind-hungry and action-loving surfers meet in Silvaplana, the surf mecca of Switzerland. The gentle breeze in the morning eases the start for first attempts. The famous Maloja wind then shows up at noon and offers the best conditions for all advanced windsurfers.
