I met 78 year-old Charlie at a world-class windsurfing and kite surfing destination in Brazil. Charlie is an avid windsurfer and wave rider. He impressed me so much that I requested to interview him. Charlie shares his best vitality secrets and his #1 secret which wasn't at all what I was expecting. This really goes to show what the human body is capable of when we nourish it and treat it with love.
