Harry Andrews is da' man. He may be 63, but he can out-kite 99% of the riders on this forum. This video is 7 years old, with "antique" equipment, but it's one of my all-time favorites. Harry rips. Respect!

Why is this a thing? Almost everybody that wings/foils around here are in their 60's. We're the only ones that can afford the gear and have the time to use it.

Good job Harry! You're an inspiration! Same for for all not so young anymore water warriors out there. At 52, and after doing windsurfing and kiting for 25 years combined, I'm starting to feel the lack of 'wind rush'. I don't know if I will still be willing to drag sails and boards around the beach in ten years.

Buy an efoil.
I started kite foiling at 70, windwing at 72.5 and now efoil at 74 but still do all 3 with occasional SUP.
Windwing tops as favourite.
