I'm impressed with the 77-78 year-olds, but I'm also stoked to see the 7-8 (or 10??) year-olds. The kids in the video are great. :thumb:

Yup, always cool to see old geezers out there!! I'm getting pretty close myself (pre-geezer).

One of my best kiting buddies here is turning 81yo next month - and looking good!! He's a great inspiration to all and we can only hope we'll still be out there at 80yo too!!

Of course for the kids everything is easy!!

What about the kid almost decapitating his dog at 2:25 https://youtu.be/ZgLkMLJVPBo?t=145 ?

And then the kid lands a sweet back roll kite loop transition on his dog's head at 2:37 https://youtu.be/ZgLkMLJVPBo?t=157

Someone needs to tell that kid not to do that shit to that dog.

That's what I was thinking to myself watching that vid.... somebody needs to train the poor dog (and the kid) before it gets seriously hurt.
