  • Massi Piffaretti

    If you want to experience wakeboarding in the right environment, Wakefactory is the Spot! From the beauty of Lake Lugano to the perfect Malibu Wake in the Crystal clear water. Maurus and the boys made an absolute vibe out there in Ticino with also a super updated pro shop and test gear. If you haven’t checked it out then I don’t know what you are waiting for!

    The Pizza Boi!


  • Shawn Watson

    The Wakefactory is such an unreal location. Coming from the US we don’t get views like you do at Wakefactory. The thing I loved most was the endless miles of glassy water and a massive wake!

  • Philipp Schramm

    Die Wakefactory ist nicht nur eine weitere Wakeboardschule! Sie ist die Wakeboardschule mit dem besten Spot in der DACH-Region und mit Maurus als Coach und Host lebst du in der Wakefactory das Leben von welchem jeder Wakeboarder träumt! Check it out!

    The Wakefactory isn’t just another Wakeboard school! This School has the best spot around Germany, Austria and Switzerland plus with Maurus as your Coach and Host you will live the dream of any Wakeboarder! Check it out!

  • Reto Schäfler

    Ich komme gerne in die Wakefactory weil hier die Bedingungen top sind! Die Malibu macht eine fette Wake und das Coaching vom Team ist Super.

    The conditions at the Wakefactory are top! Mostly I like to ride here because the Malibu creates a huge wake and the Coaching is on point.



  • Jeromé Fore

    Da ich die Sportschule besuche bin ich oft bei der Wakefactory. Ich liebe das flache Wasser, das Team, das Coaching und das Leben rund um das Wakeboarden.



  • Matroseline

    Always perfect conditions, a fabulous atmosphere and spectacular experiences plus you will have the most patient and helpful coaches.

  • Sabine Sailer

    Wakefactory ist das Paradies am Luganer See. Bei Maurus habe ich das Vertrauen neue Tricks auszuprobieren und mit seinem professionellen Coaching sowie seiner ruhigen Art hilft er mir zum Erfolg.

    Zwischen den Sets erhole ich mich im Camp bei Dolce far niente, so wie auch der Tessiner seinen Nachmittag am liebsten verbringt. Das Team ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und bietet eine angenehme familiäre Atmosphäre. Es macht immer wieder Spass hier Gast zu sein.

  • Joel Wittwer

    Meiner ansichtsweise nach ist die Wakefactory die beste Wakeboard Schule in der ganzen Schweiz. Es herrschen immer top Bedingungen und die Malibu 22MXZ serviert eine extrem massive Welle. Auf dem Boot ist immer eine gute Stimmung mit Sound und coolen Leute! Das Coaching von Maurus ist sehr präzise und er nimmt sich für jeden Fahrer Zeit und Hilft Ihnen seine Ziele zu erreichen. 

    Ich komme immer wieder gerne!

  • Adrian Rodigari & Nadine Schätzer

    Wakefactory ist einfach amazing. Die Crew ist spitze, alle mega freundlich, hilfsbereit und super lustig. Maurus bringt dich in Sachen wakeboarden mit seinem Know-how und einem guten Gespür für Boot und Welle aufs nächste Level. Generell herrschen einfach hammer Vibes und man fühlt sich sofort wie im Urlaub. Jeder Wakeboarder sollte mal da gewesen sein!!

The Family

The Wakefactory team consists of tight knit family of experienced top athletes.
We are truly passionate about wakeboarding and hope to inspire veteran and future riders.

The Wake Factory is a personal favorite of pro athlete Massi Pifferetti and tailored to your individual needs as a wakeboarder or wakesurfer. We are located at the eastern shore of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Generoso, one of Switzerland's most beautiful areas, bordering Italy. What makes this location special is the protection from wind which guarantees flat water whatever the time of day. 

The Wake Factory is owned and operated by Maurus Zwicker, one of Europe's finest riders with over 10 years of competition experience. As a qualified professional driver his mantra is "Fun Is First" and he is always concerned with making your time at the Wake Factory memorable. 

The Wake Factory utilises the latest and much applauded Malibu 22MXZ & 24MXZ, equipped with the Malibu Surf Gate, PowerWedge & Command Center, enabling total control of wake & wave shape & ramp, for beginners and pro athletes. The same model used for the British & German National Championships. 

The super chilled vibe created by Maurus and his team will motivate you to achieve your very best - whether you are a beginner looking to experience wakeboarding or wakesurfing for the first time, or an advanced rider looking to progress.
