Kitesurfing in Switzerland

Hi,

Iíve recently moved to Bern for work and Iíve recently started to kitesurf in Tarifa and Copenhagen. I want to keep kitesurfing in Switzerland, so I thought Neuchatel was a good place to start. I donít have my own equipment and I am a beginner so I would like to rent if possible. Can anyone here give me more info/advice/anything on kitesurfing in Switzerland? Also, if anyone wants to join me, you are welcome

Thanks

Re: Kitesurfing in Switzerland

Hello,



Welcome to the forum. I lived some years in Neuch‚tel. Never tried kitesurf but I saw that kite-surfers hang around the plage de Saint-Blaise.

Re: Kitesurfing in Switzerland

Yes, St Blaise ie the place, busy, lively club- and lots of activities, festivals, etc.

But please be aware Lake Neuch‚tel can be treacherous early evenings- when the air gets colder in the mountains behind, and the air is still warm by the lake. This can very FAST turn into a vacuum with very high winds- many have been caught out- some did not survive. So talk to people about local conditions, that wind called Le Joran, and take care of the warning lights on the shore and don't ignore them thinking you have time.

Lots for Neuchatel at kitesurf.ch in French, see the "Spots" and "Ecoles" (schools) pages... but it's impacted by the coronavirus now.

The Silvaplana Surf Center near St. Moritz has lessons for beginners and equipment too. Usually has strong wind coming up the Maloja pass too.
