Mr. Watson is!!! He is a wonderful friend. He plays tennis 3-5 times a week. Kites when wind is good. He can correct me but I believe I'm the one who got him to switch from Pole Boarding to Kiting. I'm striving to kite when I'm his age.

We have had several kite sesh's together. It's been several years since the last one. He is a true gentleman!!
