This past June kiteboarding world champion Youri Zoon descended on Cabarete for what was an amazing week of kite surfing under perfect sunny and windy conditions. With winds over twenty knots every day, Youri and Uncharted Kite Sessions coached a small group of enthusiastic kite boarders to new levels in their riding skills.
As always the food in Cabarete never disappoints, just like the wind. Amazing meals, great conversations, fantastic kiting, an amazing experience all around.

I am Youri Zoon, a Dutch professional kiteboarder. I travel around the world to compete and also to find awesome places to ride.

I grew up by the sea in the Southwest of the Netherlands and have been an extreme sports addict from a young age. BMX, Windsurfing, Motocross, you name it.
At age 13, I decided to focus exclusively on kiteboarding and joined the VKWC (formerly known as PKRA).

In 2007 and 2008 I was seriously injured ripping my ACL both times, and had to stop kiting during those seasons.

I came back to the championships in 2009 making it to the 2nd place.

I then won the World Title in both 2011 and 2012.
