In the early days of kitesurfing there were only a few surfers who came to Silvaplana. However, the number of enthusiastic exponents increases significantly each year.
Beginners are immediately thrilled by the feeling of surfing on a board with a kite. On a beautiful Maloja day up to one hundred kitesurfers cavort on the lake. Events such as Engadinwind with the Kitesurf World Cup have made Lake Silvaplana world famous among kitesurfers.
