The 77 year old kitesurfer - inspiration from the UK.
“Being my age, I’m not bothered by what other people think, I just do what I want to do!”
David might not be popping mobes, hucking airs on his surfboard or floating above the water on a hydrofoil, but he’s an inspiration to any kiteboarder. He loves it, and any chance he gets he’s out on the water whether it’s behind a kite, holding a boom or even stoking across a glassy bay on a jury rigged windsurfer/kayak creation. Sadly, the catalyst for his awesome lifestyle was the death of his wife 17 years ago.
“After seeing how my wife left this world, I changed my way of thinking, it could be tomorrow I’m gone. So I live each day to the full, you never know when you’re going to go. Even though I think I’m healthy, I could be dead tomorrow.”
Check out the inspirational kiteboarding video below, about an old guy who simply loves being on the water.
