Zeshion exists for the love of our planet, action sports and sharing knowledge. We believe in empowering others to achieve progression faster and have fun during the process, connecting professional athletes, enthusiasts, and consumers.
Our mission is to be the leading hub of action sports in the world, by facilitating epic experiences for our users and empowering people to reach progression in their path of life.
What we do
Zeshion is a highly specialized marketplace for action sports enthusiasts, bringing epic and accessible experiences (known as “Zeshions”) to a large, global audience.
Any action sports enthusiasts desiring to obtain coaching is now able to identify top athletes and coaches to book training time with them, minimizing the traditional communication barriers, the hard planning time and risks of blind dates with unknown coaches.
How it all started
The idea for Zeshion started on the summer of 2016 when Javier Aguilera, one of our co-founders was in Puerto Rico trying to locate an awesome surfing instructor that would be reachable, communicative and known in their community. As these things go, he started to research multiple websites and realized that if you don’t have a friend that can hook you up, then it’s almost impossible to get access to great action sports coaches that can provide you with guidance to achieve progression, while enjoying an epic experience in safe and fun learning environments. This is a scenario that every action sports enthusiast knows all too well.
In 2017, Javier met together with two of his best friends from high-school, Alberto Burger, co-founder and Chief Product Officer and Herbert Corona, all passionate about the action sports, mother nature and the outdoors. After a few of cross-border meetings between Miami, Caracas and Sydney (and a few beers in the middle) Zeshion became a reality!
In 2018, Zeshion was accepted in a Silicon Valley startup accelerator program and after a few iterations, the team quickly began servicing the action sports community with on-demand skydiving classes and flight camps. Through the convenience of our online athlete marketplace, we are reducing the “tribe” barriers, and providing access to the best coaches available, on a schedule our customers can choose through a fast, intuitive, and secure platform with social tools to evaluate coaches through satisfaction reviews.
Wherever you are, we want you to have much fun and achieve progression faster in secure and safe learning environments.
