When you don't care about the car racing anymore but you're happy to watch Jessica Yates talk about it for about 3 hours.

Nah, no one thinks they are old, we are all 20 at heart. Body though is another story.

I was talking to someone recently and they mentioned a 60 year old car.. I thought cripes that's old! Then I realised it's the same age as me..

Heck, my first car was a 61 year old model. Well, 61 years today, a 1959 Triumph TR-3. No, I bought it used and drove it until I got rear-ended while driving to physics class.

When you don't care about spending $3k on a new board or over $1,000 on a new sail because you know your sailing days are numbered

When you buy "Netball Tape", Glucosamine, Magnesium, Quinnine, Meloxicam and Panadol Osteo in bulk. Own a spare knee brace, use a 3' step ladder to get your board on and off the car and still use a sail with; "Made under licence from Hoyle Schweitzer and Windsurfer International" printed on it. No $(-)1T. Sad but true.

When two windsurfs on the reef in one day and therefore four return trips down the cliff make you wish the council would put a geriatric lift in.

After a bump and jump session, followed by a speed session in 25 kts, you can't sleep despite being completely knackered.

When I discovered taking 5 grams creatine mono phosphate before sessions really boosted my strength, and taking it afterwards kept me from getting sore, and the next day when I was sore after an epic session taking it again and the soreness going away! When I was young and got sore I suffered through it!
