In Marsh 2003 there were Two couples in Cabarete all 80, and 81.

They were americans from Maryland I beleive who had been wind
surfing since retirement and took up kitesurfing as it hit their area.

If they were still kiting, or even alive, they would be 85 now?
Does anyone know of them? I missed them by a few weeks; David

Dwoncha know they be no women alive over the age'a 30? Whachew askin is fer them to admit to being old. They might look old but rest ass-shured they aren't.

Re-phrase to say, " Any women in their golden years of magnificence who by chance participate in the youthful endeavor of kitesurfing?

That is a great link, thanks.. very inspiring. as an early 40s kiteboarder I sometimes feel old at the local riding spot, after watching that video I feel like I have another 30-40 years to kite.

With another 30 years of practice I should be able to throw a handlepass trick !!!
