Youri Zoon needs no introduction. One of the best rider of all time, he is now fully dedicated to kite camps and coaching all over the world. His kite clinics are oriented to small groups and to intermediate and advanced riders only, riders that know what they want and where to progress, from simple jumping or a perfect riding technique to advanced freestyle manoeuvres and big airs.
On this kite cruise, he will focus on a max number of 6 kiters – every kiter is different, with different needs and different progression in mind, that’s why every one will be trained on a One on One session with Youri, with live directions using the BBtalking system to Kite Video Analysis to help you make it right.
SATURDAY: Arrival day on the boat, meeting with Youri and the team & introduction to the kite clinic and to the kite cruise. We will sit down and figure out everyone goals for the week.

While we expect good wind conditions in the Red Sea, in case of poor wind, we will have other activity planned for that specific day: wingfoiling, stand up paddle board, wakeboarding and snorkeling.
We will be cruising in style, with one of our favorite boat – Queen Sherry. This luxury motor yacht hosts up to 22 kiters and 2 extra kite guides, so it has plenty of space for every one. There is a cozy restaurant and a chef ready to cook 3 meals per day, a main lounge with TV and DVD, a sun deck, a second main deck with a small bar for a well deserved drinks at sunset, and a deck for gear set up. All cabins have air-condition, comfortable beds, and a private toilet with shower. This boat and its crew have tons of experience in kite safaris, and of course I will be personally on board, as a kite tour leader – we organize Kite cruises in Egypt since 2015, and we know the sea and its kite spots.
He needs no introduction. Multiple world champion, ambassador of the sport we love, incredible well-rounded athlete. You will find no better example to follow on the water, an inspiration to all us kitesurfers.
