Wannabe watersports is about promoting the desire to be on, in or around the water. We are passionate about watersports of all types and want to be out on the water as often as possible. We enjoy Sailing, Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Stand Up Paddle, Surfing or just about anything that get’s us on the water.

Switzerland is not the place anyone immediately thinks about when you discussing watersports. The lack of an ocean, waves or even wind leaves little to spark the imagination of many watersports enthusiasts. Especially for those of us who come from coastal regions.

Switzerland has many beautiful lakes, some with quite reasonable thermal winds in Summer. The “Föhn” winds can blow at any time of year and the quite strong, but cold Bise can often be found in the lakes of the French region in Autumn. Switzerland is also situated in a perfect position for short trips to the Mediterranean or lakes Como and Garda and with many international airports jetting off to warmer climbs can be easily done.

Over time we will write some blog posts regarding different aspects of watersports in Switzerland and we will also be in a position to provide you with some of the equipment which may help you get out on Swiss waters.

Our Approach

We believe there are enough challenges in daily life. Doing the things we enjoy should be as easy as possible. Our goal is to take the challenges out of participating in watersports in and around Switzerland. Our aim will be to provide information about watersports in Switzerland and also organise some taster events during the summer. We can also provide you with clothing and equipment for Stand Up Paddling, Windsurfing and other water activities.


Dave

Dave has a background in Watersports having obtained the some of the highest instructorships in Windsurfing, Sailing, Motorboating and Kayaking before moving to Switzerland. The challenges involved with participating in these sports on arriving in Switzerland led to him spending more time in the mountains skiing and mountain biking and consequently becoming a Swiss Cycling Mountain Bike Expert and founding Swiss Alpine Adventure – A community which organises events for more than 3000 expats and locals in Switzerland. Wannabe Watersports is about getting back to the roots and providing possibilities and information for those who want to, to participate in various watersports.
