"I opened the surf school in 1995"

I opened the surf school in 1995. I had been travelling a lot surfing and I was getting to an age where I thought Iíd have, I would like to kind of like be a little bit more stable and I wasnít quite sure what to do but I loved the water and I loved surfing. So I was living in France and I was driving back home and I decided on the way home that I was going to open a surf shop, which, when I got back home I started by opening a surf school and then a few months after that we opened the surf shop and itís ten years thatís past and Iíve had a really enjoyable time with it.
