Hello! I’m Lee
Surfer & Coffee Addict
My name is Lee Young and I’m a middle aged family man that is continually looking to create a way of life that is Beautiful and on my terms. I truly believe that we all deserve a life where we have as much fun as possible and earn a living doing something that we are passionate about.
I had it all figured out. Originally from England, my family and I were lured to Australia in search of the “Perfect Life”. I had it all going for me:
An amazing family,
A sought after trade, with 25 years experience,
A job that had great career prospects and paid very well,
and, now we were living in Australia.
The future was bright or so I thought. It was when I hit my forties that I started to realise that there must be a better way. Call it a mid-life crisis if you want but I felt that something was continually tapping on my shoulder telling me that there is a better way and that you should be working for your self.
So I took a very deep breathe and took a leap of faith into starting my own business. I’ve always dreamed of owning and running a surf shop so that is exactly what I did, I started SurfPeople in Lennox Head. My wife and I have never worked so hard in all our lives. Both the children had left home and it was supposed to be the time when we would be able to kick back and enjoy the benefits of working hard all of our adult lives.
So in August 2015 we said enough is enough lets change the way we do things and so my wife and (she is also called Lee) started to look for the ‘Beautiful Life’ we dreamed of.
