Male’, Maldives, 14th April 2024 – From May 6th to 20th, 2024, COMO Cocoa Island invites guests to embark on an exhilarating kitesurfing odyssey alongside Youri Zoon, celebrated for seizing the kitesurfing world championship twice. Whether you’re a neophyte craving the fundamentals or a seasoned aficionado striving for intricate maneuvers and airborne thrills, Zoon’s seasoned guidance promises to amplify your kitesurfing prowess.

Kitesurfing, a dynamic water sport that merges windsurfing, surfing, and wakeboarding, allows riders to harness wind power with controllable kites, gliding across the ocean’s surface 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 the 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.

Nestled within South Male Atoll, COMO Cocoa Island beckons discerning travelers with its intimate enclave of 33 overwater villas. Renowned for its iconic Dhoni Water Villas, which pay homage to Maldivian maritime heritage, this idyllic retreat offers a sanctuary of tranquility and indulgence.
