Oldest I know about was Poul from Denmark...88 years old. Did a session, landed the kite, did few steps and fell over and was dead. Amazing death!

Current oldest I personally know is Manfred Spuck from Germany, living in Cumbuco, Brazil, since many years. He is 85 I think. Will check.
Wow, he got to go out right after a kite session...and then did't even have to pack up his gear?! THAT'S the way to go out! :lol: :lol: :lol:
yes, perfect ;-)

When traveling we had t shirts that read
‘If you die, we split your gear’ 😳😂

The video is 6 years old.. I don't know how many number he has added to the count after the video. A Legend for sure!
