No age for this sport. Just need appropriate training & equipment.

the youngest I know is 8 years old.
Started this year and starts jumping now.

Saw a lady in Fuerte joining a course, she was really heavy and about 50-60 years old.

Here more and more older guys (I guess they windsurfed for about 20 years) with an age about 50-65.

I started 2 years ago and I'm 30.

Don't know about the youngest, but the South African distributor of Wipika has his son on a specially made cyclone board and a tiny Wipika kite. Not sure of his age, but he looks about 6. Seems to be handling it fine.

Gonna be a scary little bastard when he grows up. Damn youngsters are psycho, and their bones break less easily than ours.

I'm 33 and I just started. No previous board sports experience, some previous experience with traction kites.
