PKRA Releases New Youri Zoon Rider Profile Video

Born in 1989 and living in Dirksland, NL, Youri Zoon is one of the most complete kiteboarders today. He grew up practicing all kinds of extreme sports, like BMX, Windsurfing, Motocross and others. At age 13, Youri decided to focus exclusively on kiteboarding and started to push his skills to a new level.

In 2006 he made entrance in the PKRA and managed to make his way up to the 3rd place. In 2007 and 2008 he had to stop his progress due to a severe knee injury. In 2009 he made his comeback and this way he made his way up to the second place. Then, in 2010 he claimed the 3rd place again.

But Youri could not settle for less than the World Title. And after hard work and lots of training, he claimed the Kiteboarding Freestyle world title in both 2011 and 2012. It was a hard road, but it was rewarding. This season Youri is still fighting his way to the first place on the PKRA charts. He recently shared the first place with his eternal contender to the title Alex Pastor from Spain at PKRA Marsala.

To honor his performance, the guys at PKRA have put together a cool video rider profile for the Dutch rider. This profile was shot during the third tour stop of the PKRA 2013 in Marsala, Italy and you can check it out below.
