Project 65+: the 14 women aged 65-76 who ride kites

The Women’s Kiteboarding Collective (WKC) launched a short film that celebrates the 14 female kitesurfers who range in age from 65 to 76.

“Life with a kite is damn near perfection.” The words are from Betsy, a 69-year-old kiteboarder from Baja California Sur. She is one of the many senior riders flying kites around the world.

Contrary to the usual stereotypes of older women, these girls are skilled, experienced and accomplished kiters.
