Silvaplana See , Switzerland

Perfectly flat water, the more wind the choppier it gets. There is no sandy beach, but from the launch/land side there is a big area of grass the whole way down the lake (600m) and again 500m up on the other side where you normally arrive, if your kite drops and you are not able to relaunch again. So it's safe. There is one official entry but you can get in everywhere if you manage 30 cm of stones which are around at waterside. On the weekends it's normally a little bit crowded to get in. Sometimes you have to wait one minute before launching you kite. Upward from the official kite launching zone there is no way to start your kite. There are also a lot of windsurfers. The Maloya wind is a very constant wind all year around, it blows with 3-5 Bft. The wind is thermal. This spot has only enough wind if it comes from South/Southeast, then it normally has about 4-6 Bft. Lower density of air leads to higher surface need.
