Nice video, Jurg,

So you were wearing wetsuits before you came to the Pacific Ocean.

Those multiple helicopter type turns in the air are pretty impressive.

What is the water temperature on that lake?

Yes wetsuit in fall and spring usually dry suit or 5/7 mm for winter, in summer water is like 70-75, fall and spring around 50 and winter 4C around 38. The bros in Switzerland are hardcore and excellent waterman Smilel like my USA buddy's ...
Aloha and happy sailing

Hey I think I know that spot. Drove by there last summer on business unrelated to windsurfing. A bunch of sailors were out on 7's plus minus. Minimal "beach" though, minimal parking as well, but the setup looks like it's always windy there as the wind funnels through the alps South to North.
