Zoon pairs up with Irish kiteboarder Ryan Coote in this short film based on Ireland’s rustic Wild Atlantic Way. An extreme sports addict from a young age Zoon found himself drawn to kiteboarding due to its sense of freedom, the adreneline rush and scope for personal creativty. Dedicating his life to the sport since the tender age of 13 he is now known as ‘the’ freestyle power house . Displaying huge passion and determination to constantly push the boundaries of his sport by introducing never seen before tricks. Zoon explains that he loves competing but nothing compares to travelling to new locations to find the perfect kitesurfing beach.

Watch in a full 360-degree VR experience as the pair travel through the rugged West Coast of Ireland, in their BMW X1 to find the perfect conditions. Travelling through the rugged Connors Pass towards Brandon Bay the views are breath taking. Watch as the action unfolds from a mix of exciting angles as the duo lay-down awesome stunts, putting their LifeProof cases to the test while recording the action to analyse later.
