This is What it is Like to Kitesurf in Switzerland

It is funny but for a country with no coastline we meet a huge amount of Swiss kiters on our travels and the country is responsible for the current Junior sensation Maxime Chabloz.

So what is it like to kite in this alpine paradise, well the Swiss brand GIN who are headed up by Fabienne Kaufmann have released a video which shows just why so many kiters from all backgrounds and styles seem to come from this mountainous wonderland.

Passion is what has been driving GIN KITEBOARDING since the first day of its creation in 2007: passion for kitesurfing as well as for the different elements that can be found in Switzerland: Water, Snow, Wind, Mountains, … Nature and its incredible beauty!

Through this video, we wish to share our values and the passion that is inspiring us every day.
