So how many old guys are out there? (by old I mean about 60 yrs plus.) How long have you been kiting, where do you kite, what style of riding, and whats your favorite trick?
I am 67 so am the definition of old school. I learned about 4 years ago but got most of my kiting in in the last two years. I ride strictly hooked (too worried about injuring my shoulders to do unhooked) I have a great flat water spot in Isla San Andres Colombia and my favorite (and hardest ) trick is either a back 720 or a front 720. I've started working on one footer, would like to do a board off. Also have started on the dark slide.
I am jealous of all the 30's something riders out there that get 30 more years of kiting before they are as old as some of us but I'm sure not complaining.
