Overview

Due to crowds and the lake size, kitesurfing is not allowed on this lake except during winter.
Otherwise a nice small lake with few kite spots with a nice local crowd.

Wind

Gusty wind in summer, better in the winter.

Dangers

Crowd, sailing boats and swimmers.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
