This is the first spot ever surfed on the Lake Leman, first session occured on August 1995, and others in 2001 and 2007. It works only with very strong north wind conditions. Mostly in winter and rarely on fall or spring. You can ride small 1 m waves, left or right.
Absolutely incredible to be surfing on the Lake of Geneva. Unfortunately, the spot works only a few times a year.
