Timothy Hazelip conducts surf lessons and excursions with Paradigm youth, at one of the many stunning beaches here in Malibu. His love of surfing and the profound positive effects it has had on his life has made him passionate about leading therapeutic surf sessions for teens that are struggling with an array of mental and/or emotional health needs, including addiction, anxiety, and/or depression. Tim continues to be in amazement of the transcendent way in which surf therapy reaches teens and the opportunities for healing which it offers.
Tim grew up in foster care, with a loving mother and father that inspired him to work kids in need. He is also professional surf instructor, published author, and accomplished filmmaker, as well as the founder of a non-profit that documents stories and benefits of surf therapy work.
