Gavin Beschen traveled millions and millions of miles through space to get to Earth. No one knows what exact planet he came from, but they know he landed in San Clemente, California. His extraterrestrial powers enabled him to quickly progress in the human game of surfing.
Over the last decade, Gavin has used his alien powers to excite, entertain, and amaze human fans of advanced, space-age-style surfing. TransWorld SURF had a close encounter with the “Alien” and attained some information about his existence here on Earth. -C.C.
“You gotta be flexible but firm, and keep on movin’ along with your head up.”
“I don’t like to see what’s straight in front of me-I like to take a step back and look at the complete picture.”
“Sometimes you should make what’s in front of you blurry so you can take a look at what’s clear beyond that.”
“People need to appreciate everyone for who they are, not what they aren’t. How people look at me is not really important-it’s how I look at myself and how I carry myself.”
How many light-years did it take to get to Earth?I’m not sure how far our generations of Beschens go back, but I’m just lucky to be here. I owe everything to my mom and dad-I’d like to thank them first of all.
What kind of ship do you travel in?
A big ship with all of my friends helping and supporting me along the way.
Do you or any of your people have anything to do with the crop circles in England?
Yeah, we try to keep it tight-everyone supporting everyone.
You were probably a little young, but did you have any relatives involved in the Roswell incident?
Was there any connection?
I don’t recall. Maybe I was a little too young.
Is it your people who’ve been abducting earthlings for the last few-thousand years?
Well, I don’t know. I’d say the ocean does a pretty good job of taking out everyone and keeping them.
So the ocean’s really the force that’s been abducting earthlings. How did your people manage to achieve the speed of light in order to travel those hundreds of thousands of miles?
I just think everyone in my town was shown to be appreciative and thankful. We were lucky ’cause there’s such a vast amount of talent, and everyone’s so humble. It made me aspire to do my best-you know, carry that when you travel the Earth.
Of all the places on Earth, why San Clemente, California for your home base?
Pretty much my family roots. My dad’s been working to provide and show us a way to make a life surfing. My mom and dad showed us two alternatives, you know. We chose the one where you could have some freedom and do what you love.
In your travels through space, did you ever get in trouble with asteroids or comets?
Plenty. There’re plenty of those in your daily travels, not just the ones around the world-it could be in your everyday journey through your town. You gotta be flexible but firm, and keep on movin’ along with your head up.
So you’d say the best way to avoid collisions with an asteroid or a comet would be … ?
Just be flexible yet firm. Don’t try to break it, just try to flow with it. What’s the old video game where you blow up one big asteroid and it turns into a hundred more?
Asteroids. Have you ever found it possible to fold the space-time continuum and create a time-travel porthole?
It seems the more you fly in planes and cross datelines, things like that, it seems like you miss out on a day of your life or you gain a day. You just end up traveling through it. The sun goes up, and then night comes-it just happens again and again.
How many of your people are among us?
I’d like to say the culture of surfing is like a worldwide internationally known people. I’d say it’s a good-sized tribe.
Does Stonehenge have any correlation with the pyramids in Egypt?
I don’t know, they both stand strong. For me, I’m just glad and really apprreciative for all the help in standing strong. The help from Volcom and Body Glove. I’m working with my brother Shane and some of our friends from San Clemente on F.A.B. sunglasses. Also, Globe shoes and Timmy Patterson. He’s my main man for shaping surfboards. He’s really open-minded to me, and that’s important.
Do you see in color or in computerized pixels?
How do you see out of your eyes?
I don’t like to see what’s straight in front of me-I like to take a step back and look at the complete picture. Maybe what’s in front of you is too clear and what’s behind it is a little too blurry. Sometimes you should make what’s in front of you blurry so you can take a look at what’s clear beyond that.
Have you ever been contacted through remote viewing, like psychic telepathy?
Sometimes words aren’t as important as sharing times and feelings. Some things are better unsaid than trying to say them and stumbling on words.
[IMAGE 3]Is this your true human form?
The form in which I try my best would be a formless state of form-having no style or form, just be light.
Can you communicate telepathically?
If so, what do you say to people?
I do my best to reassure their confidence in themselves-I do my best to support that. I like to look them straight in the eye, have them feel that way, and not have to say it.
How long do you plan to stay on Earth?
Some things are only in your control for so long. My plans aren’t always what’s meant to be. Sometimes what you need and what you want are two different things. My plan’s to enjoy my time while I can.
What about after Earth?
With the spirits, hopefully.
When you walk down the street, how do you think humans see you?
Hopefully, they’re not too judgemental. Everybody needs to have a little more of a sense of humor. People need to appreciate everyone for who they are, not what they aren’t. How people look at me is not really important-it’s how I look at myself and how I carry myself. I want to carry myself so that when they look at me, they look at themselves.
When you depart from this planet, what do you want to leave behind as your legacy?
That’s a good question. You always think of that, too. I mean, what would you leave behind?
I’d say a positive vibration is what I’d like to leave behind.
