About three weeks ago, the world champion in Kiteboarding Youri Zoon, visited Greece after being invited by  the WBSF team, the Slingshot Greece & the Νo Work Kiteboarding School for the forthcoming 5th Kitesurf Festival.

After a small tour in Santorini with Slingshot’ s Greek team, Youri visited Drepano Achaias for two full days of kitesurf with classic western winds.

And this is what happened …

Youri Zoon impressed audience and athletes with his kitesrurfing skills and left Greece with the promise that probably this will not be his last visit to the spot…

Thank you Youri for being so true to the sport!
