SUPing on Turlersee and in Knonaueramt
 
My wife and I have recently discovered Turlersee, and she would be super keen to try out stand up paddling here rather than in Zurich, as it's a more natural environment and since we live in the Knonaueramt. I have two quick questions for anyone familiar with SUPing and the area:

1) As neither of us has much SUP experience, ideally we'd start with a course just to get oriented (more with Swiss water rules/customs than SUPing, really - what to do, what not to do). Does anyone know of any SUP courses in slightly less built-up areas? Ie along the lower Reuss, on Zugersee, or similar?


2) I've managed to find one SUP rental company at Turlersee (link below) - has anyone rented from them before?

Cheers!

We haven't rented from them but tend to visit Turlersee quite often as it's close to us and there are always people on the lake using SUP and the rental agency seems to do a good, consistent trade.

I learned to SUP with https://www.sup-kurse.ch/
In the summer, they are based at the TCS campsite in Zug.

Swiss water rules as applied to SUP seem to be limited - just the requirement for a life-vest if you are more than 300m from shore

It seems I'm too new to the forum 'thank' you all with the forum button, so I'll go the old-fashioned way.

Thanks for the info and tips! Much appreciated.
