Youri Zoon has signed a three-year contract with Best Kiteboarding team. The world freestyle kiteboarding champion will ride for the brand headquartered in Rodanthe, North Carolina.
Youri Zoon is preparing to meet Gisela Pulido. Both riders will defend their global domination in the 2013 PKRA season, with the GP v2 kite in their hands.
"I rode the GP already and after 5 minutes I was landing my Blind judge 7, 317 and S-Mobe 7 so I think I will get used to it pretty soon. That kite is sweet", says Zoon.
"Next year for sure I will ride boots and the main goal is to become world champion again! That's pretty much the only goal I am aiming for. Beside that I just want to make clean runs and go for really high scoring tricks", adds Youri.
Best Kiteboarding was launched in 2003 and is trying to dominate the kite market with a large network with industry's first direct-to-consumer sales model.
"Youri is one of the most recognizable kiters on the planet and we are looking forward to his contribution to the continued success and growth of the Best family", says Lia Feriancek, team manager.
