With 54 years of surfing experience and nearly four decades spent surf coaching, ISA Course Presenter Tim Jones has accrued a wealth of surf knowledge that is rivaled by few others on this planet.
Tim has dedicated his life to the sport and the service of spreading his surf love and mastery across the globe.
Having established ISA recognized surf schools in both Sri Lanka and the Canary Islands, Tim has mentored scores of instructors to pass on the proper development and coaching principles to ensure a bright future for the sport. He even launched a YouTube channel so any surfer around the world can access his instruction (you may have seen his videos shared on ISA’s social media).
However, in 2019 life threw a wrench into Tim’s plans when he was diagnosed with cancer. He was rushed into treatment and had to take a break from surfing as a whole.
Now having been through countless operations and chemotherapy, Tim is on the mend looking to land back on his feet. And perhaps the greatest tool for recovery is the one that has been with him throughout all these years: surfing. Tim is utilizing all the techniques and tips that he has spent decades giving to others, but now for himself, adapting and learning to surf and heal in his new reality.
