Let’s face it, should you make it to the grand old age of 100 it is entirely up to you how you celebrate the occasion. Maybe a cheeky tipple, a bite to eat with friends and family or even a snooze in your favourite chair. That all sounds very nice but it wasn’t what Nels Gerhard Glesne fancied doing for his centenary celebrations, he decided to mark the occasion with a spot of Kitesurfing at Kanaha Beach Park in Hawaii.
Nels may be 10 decades old but keeps himself fit and active and with the help of his son and his friends and an adapted catamaran, Nels was able to take to the ocean and even ride a couple of small rolling waves. I reckon this will be the most uplifting video you will see this weekend and if I make to the age of 100 I am making sure that I mark it in a similar style to this inspiring Great Grandad
You can watch Nels kiteboarding a catamaran on his 100th birthday below and although we don’t know who the music is by, the lyrics are absolutely perfect to accompany the clip. Let us know if you have any plans to mark momentous birthdays like Nels and what do you think of this adventurous centenarian?
