Catch the wind with Youri Zoon, Kitesurfing World Champion and make waves at COMO Cocoa Island

Embark on an exhilarating kitesurfing odyssey from May 6th to 20th, 2024, at  COMO Cocoa Island alongside Youri Zoon, celebrated for seizing the kitesurfing world championship  twice. Under his seasoned guidance, amplify your kitesurfing prowess, whether you're a neophyte  craving the fundamentals or a seasoned aficionado striving for intricate manoeuvres and airborne thrills. 
Kitesurfing merges windsurfing, surfing, and wakeboarding for a dynamic water sport. Using  controllable kites, riders harness wind power to glide across the ocean's surface while being set against  the backdrop of endless horizons and azure waters. 
Throughout his residency, Zoon will conduct guided kitesurfing sessions, offering novices a gentle  introduction to the sport or empowering veterans to elevate their abilities. Additionally, Zoon will host  enlightening COMO Conversations, delving into his personal journey to kitesurfing eminence and the  obstacles he surmounted along the way. 
Guests may arrange activities with Zoon at their leisure, with plenty of time to make the most of our  private island comforts, from massage treatments at COMO Shambhala to sandbank dinners under the  stars and more.
Hailing from the Netherlands, Zoon's affinity for kiteboarding burgeoned at the tender age of 13. A  prodigious talent, he swiftly amassed accolades, securing victories at the Junior European  Championships and Dutch Nationals in his inaugural year. Subsequently clinching the world title in 2011  and 2012, Zoon's enduring passion for the sport fuels his ongoing commitment to mentorship and  coaching, ensuring his legacy endures both on and off the water.
