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?

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...
Gear: SCREAMER 7/9/12/14 for Free Style. Not to forget the SCREAMER 10 LTD for my one go kite. SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves. Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.
