As -- -- my brother decided -- their full time.
And came back to the states.
Got to the mortgage business.
And did very well that.
And decided that.
I was getting kind of restless during the mortgage -- successful but being in an office and you know behind a cubicle what not kind of was my gig and one day.
-- lunch break -- Somebody call my name from across the way and it was a friend of mine gassing up his van had loaded down with surfboards.
Walked over there is an -- tonight doing long time no see.

You actually dropped your price to keep people coming which I commend you for because.
I think it's a badge of honor to say I survived their session these days -- when he made money or not -- survived right.
-- -- actually to be quite honest with you we had a higher volume of people over the last couple years to come down so we actually had more business.
Then we did years prior because we dropped our pricing and also.
You know about 90% of our business we customized a lot of packages and so what was happening was a lot of people were inquiring.
But they were haggling for prices and you know my philosophy is that I want people to come down and enjoy.
You know what I enjoy down there and express the passion for surfing that we have.
And so you know why make a little bit less money on it that's fine with me so your bottom dollar was a tad bit lower in the past couple years so we actually had a higher volume of people commit.
