Youri Zoon grew up by the sea in the Southwest of the Netherlands and has been an extreme sports addict from a young age. BMX, Windsurfing, Motocross, you name it. With each of these activities, Youri always pushed himself to the limit. At age 13, Youri decided to focus exclusively on kiteboarding and joined the VKWC (formerly known as PKRA).
Being one of the most powerful riders in the circuit can bring with it misfortunes. In 2007 and 2008 he was seriously injured ripping his ACL both times, and had to stop kiting during those seasons. He came back to the championships in 2009 more motivated than ever. By becoming PKRA Vice World Champion, he quenched any doubt regarding his performance level. With determination and focus, Youri grabbed the World Title in both 2011 and 2012.
