  • Yuri Zoon: Two-Time World Champion to Hold Kitesurfing Clinic in Ras Sudr

    youri zoon header

    He’s a two-time world kitesurfing champion. He won those two titles after tearing his ACL twice in as many years. He once cleared a 120 ft wide island in the Pacific Ocean in one leap. Some call him the ‘Lionel Messi of Kitesurfing’. Some consider him to be the be the most naturally gifted freestyle kitesurfer in the world. He’s pretty easy on the eyes, too.

    We speak of Dutch daredevil, Yuri Zoon, who this month will lead a very special kitesurfing clinic at the 360 Sudr Kitesurfing Centre. Taking place across two days on the 28th and 29th of July, this won't be Zoon's first visit to Egypt having already tamed Ras Sudr's waves during a career that has seen him ride and compete everywhere from USA, Spain and Italy, to Vietnam, Thailand and Mexico. 

    Considered a legend and household name in the sport, Zoon's fame also found him heavily featured in critically-acclaimed, award-winning documentary, Chapter One: The Kiteboard Legacy Begins in 2016. So, in short, he's a pretty big deal.

    For more information, check out the 360 Sudr website and Facebook page.
