To be successful as a surfboarder, you first need to go to the beach. Not just any beach but one with the right waves (it is too hard to make a wave although many people in business think they can). Then you have to fight your way out with all the little waves trying to push you back and knock you down. If you manage to get to the right place at the right time, you have to have strength and balance to get yourself up right on the board and again at just the right time. You have to notice everything including the other surfers. And don’t forget there may be sharks in the area. But if you do everything right you have a great thrill which can only by definition come to an end. And then you go and try it again.
