Welcome to Silvaplana

Silvaplana is considered the surfing Mecca of Switzerland. With us, you kite board on a deep blue mountain lake, in front of an impressive mountain scenery with snow-covered peaks and surrounded by pristine nature. Thanks to the constant and reliable Maloja wind, Silvaplana is not only unique but also one of the best kite spots in Switzerland.

Directly at the kite spot you will find our large kite shop and the kite school as well as extensive infrastructure, a camping site directly at the lake and the sports center Mulets with restaurant. Kite spot, kite shop, accommodation, restaurant, as well as showers, changing rooms and toilets - all this is found within a radius of just 200 meters. A small member fee is charged for the use of the leased private meadow (the kite beach), the infrastructure of the sports center and our beach marshals.

Ideal weather conditions are nice weather with low pressure distribution or with south, southwest wind currents. In these cases a thermal southwest wind blows from about 1 pm until sunset. Usually the wind blows with four to five Beaufort. With strong southwest currents it can also be stronger. Less than ideal for kitesurfing in Silvaplana is a strong northern current and strong north winds.
