Tim started windsurfing three years ago and since then loves to spend as much time as possible on the water.
The perfect windsurfing conditions at his homespot El Médano, and the help of friends and pro athletes Daniel Bruch, Alex Mussolini and Adam Lewis, allowed Tim to improve quickly.
His goals are improving his wave windsurfing and doing well during the 2014 PWA Pozo Izquierdo and PWA El Médano junior events.
Whenever there's no wind, Tim also likes to catch waves, be it on a surfboard, SUPing or bodyboarding.
