2x World Champion
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.
