After 88 year old Poul from Denmark passed away (RIP Poul!), we need to find the oldest rider out there!

Who is it? Let us know ages!

Yes Jacques is certainly a contender now for oldest kitesurfer but can someone explain to me why the Youtube posted in 2011 states that he was the oldest kitesurfer in the world when Poul was still very much alive and active?

I met a guy in Hatteras a few weeks ago at Kitty Hawk that said he was 79 and would be 80 in a month. I don't remember his name but maybe he'll pop up on here. Also Arizona Lou is 70 somthing...

In January 2012, I met a 79 year old kitesurfer and windsurfer in Aruba at Fisherman's Huts beach. His name is Walter and evidently he goes to Aruba for 3 months every winter. I believe he's from Delaware or someplace on the East Coast USA. Great guy, all the regulars at the Huts know him...
