"Training camps for me is most of the time a very statisfing feeling since I get to do what I love to do and also share my passion with other people on the water.− Youri Zoon
Mostly we are having a lot of fun but in the same time we are learning some new things as well. Things don't get better than that right ?"
"It was a really great experience to do my first camp last year. Dakhla was the best location, we just woke up in the mornings early, eat, kite at the flat water spot, eat, rest, kite again… Loved to see how everyone was having fun, can’t wait to come back again!."− Alex Pastor
"I've done a lot of camps together with kiteboarding camps and it has always been days filled with fun and joy.− Kari Schibevaag
For me as an instructor its great to work together with kiteboarding camps. Its always well organized and I'm always meeting new good friends that have the same passion as me.
I love camps and I am always looking forward for the next one."

"Hey Gemma, just a quick one to say thanks for an amazing week in Dakhla, the Youri Zoon training camp was off the shinazza!! The whole trip was unforgettable, so stoked! Kiting with Youri Zoon, getting pointers and watching how its done – priceless!For anyone wanting to go on a kiteboaring camps trip its highly recommended! Everything is planned to perfection, from the minute you arrive at Dakhla airport, the pick up is waiting to take you to the exellent accomadation, where the party starts. Even on the no wind days Gemma took us cruising around in the 4wds checking the place out, surfing and even on a journey to full enlightenment at the fountain of life – magic! Beers, good company and hearty meal each night in the lodge keeps you well fueled for the next days adventures. With new friends and a wrecked body it was an experience I won’t forget! Thanks to all, see you next year!? "− Shayne Mc Aulay, Youri Zoon Week, August 2012
"Thanks for the amazing week!! The camp was awsome and so much fun!!!! The accomodation and the organisation was also really good ass well @ youri zoon freestyle sessions camp!"− Pim Van Hendel, Youri Zoon Week August 2012
"Just arrived home from an amazing trip on the Youri Zoon Freestyle Sessions Part 2 camp in Dakhla organised by Kiteboarding Camps! On arrival in Dakhla you are greeted with a sweeping desert landscape and wind which immediately brings a smile to any kiters face.− Will Smallacombe, Youri Zoon Week August 2012
Its not in every sport that you get to ride, chill and talk with the current World Champ and Kiteboarding camps made this possible for a small group of us. Youri was so cool to be around and shared his time, knowledge and experience with everyone very generously, after hanging with him for a while you definitely realise why he is at the top of his field. We all progressed heaps as lots of kiting and trick analysis was done but we also had lots of laughs and less serious moments, definitely a trip I will never forget.
Gemma from Kiteboarding Camps is a guru at event management and made the process of organising the trip super easy with prompt responses before the trip and made sure we were all well looked after during the camp.
If anyone is thinking of a trip with these guys I would highly recommend it. Once again I would like to thank Youri and Gemma for a sweet trip. Yew."
