Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Fred Giray is 72. He credits a watersports background and helpfull tips from the local school kiterider.ca for his quick progress. Fred still windsurfs too when it's really windy. The ironic part about Fred being 72, is his local launch at Oliphant, ON has one of the youngest kiteboarding communities in North America, with most riders in their mid-teens. With such a fast learning curve, Fred will be hitting sliders before you know it.
Fred's not alone. Check out this video from the AARP.
