David: 77 and charging

He says he lives in paradise. We should trust him. He's a 77-year-old kiteboarder.

"I live in paradise, don't tell too many people. I've been kitesurfing for seven or eight years. Before that, and I still do, windsurf for the last 40 years," explains David, a passionate waterman.

The man who enjoys "flying on a cloud" believes, "if heaven's like this, I'd be quite happy to go. This is poetry in motion." There will never be age limitations to learning kiteboarding, and he's proving it.

David's wife passed away 16 years ago. In a couple of days, cancer took her life. David decided to change his life and live it to the fullest. Snowboarding, skiing, everything.

At 77, and for many people, David he's an old man and a classic pensioner. For us, he's our hero and idol.
