Electric Surfboards allowed on all Switzerland lakes?

Importing this topic from the E-Surfer FB group for reference:

Chapi:

Are your boards allowed on all Switzerland lakes ? Or you need a special licence like a boat licence ?

Björn:

according to Schiffahrtsamt ZH both electric and fuel powered surfboards are not allowed in CH (since they have no CH-Typenschein). Whether you got a boat licence or not is irrelevant.

Chapi:

Thanks for the explanations… I was sure that something is wrong as always with Switzerland… A beautiful country but as soon as something’s new exists… nothing is allowed… old and fossilized people manage the country !
