As soon as the Maloja wind sets in around noon, the colourful kites start to bob and dance across Lake Silvaplana. The quickest and most effective way of learning the correct technique is by booking a few lessons at the Swiss Kitesurf School in Silvaplana.
The school was the first of its kind in the world – after all, this trend sport was invented here at Lake Silvaplana – and can in the meantime look back on 18 years of experience.
