  Surfing Your Way Into Creative Real Estate !

By James A. Gage

I have surfed in my life. Yes, quite a few years ago and believe it or not, sometimes people tell me I look like a old surfer. I surfed not really knowing what I was doing, but I did it for fun in Florida with my friends. The true art of Surfing fascinates me to no end. It was about eighteen years ago that I was standing at the water's edge with a good friend. He was a surfer who had competed professionally and had hosted a surfing show on TV. We were watching surfers and I was asking questions about waves, boards, techniques, etc.

That day I got much more than a lesson on surfing. I got a lesson on life. My friend was telling me how to "catch a wave." He explained that before a wave comes, you must be moving in the same direction as the wave and at the same speed, otherwise, the wave will simply pass you by and you will not "catch it." If you are lying on the board, on your stomach, and paddling fast enough toward the shore, you will be synchronized with the wave when it reaches you. You will then be able to ride it, stand up on your board, and surf! Simple stuff, huh? Makes perfect sense. It's one of those things you think about afterward and say, "I probably could have figured that out on my own." It's so simple that I had missed it. When it was explained to me, I instantly understood and it was as if Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Donald Trump were speaking to me.
