Kitesurf

I am a new beginner to kitesurfing and am in love with this sport!


Are there any kitesurfers around that goes short kiting trips/ random kiting trips on the nearby lakes?

You can find windsurf lessons and equipment at the tropical corner and at vengeron (towards Versoix)


Regarding kitesurfing, I've heard it's not allowed in Geneva for security reasons with all the navigation in the lake, but I've seen some kitesurfers in Hermance, reachable by bicycle from Geneva.

sorry it's not true that you can't kite on the lake, i do it often . it's only on the small lake close to la rade de genève that it's not allowed.


Usually we go kiting from versoix or le vengeron, if you want to know more about kiting in geneva or snowkiting close to geneva just ask me

Hi Guys,


I would love to learn how to kitesurf! Usually I am a teach-myself type, but I admit that for kitesurfing it might be smart to get some lessons at least for the first 1-2 days ;)


If you are interestes in lessons for a day we could take them together to make it cheaper.


 


Let me know,


Lenny

Hi there. I have been saying all winter that I would love to learn to kitesurf on Lac Leman as soon as the summer's here.

I would be very interested in joining up for some lessons if anyone is looking into this. I have no equipment (yet) so this would need to be available for hire/included.
