About Tommy

Yes, Tommy Tsunami is a real person. My real name is actually Thomas but I got the nickname from surfing big waves at such a young age. Growing up in Half Moon Bay I was fortunate enough to have Mavericks in my backyard along with a group of hungry like minded friends that pushed my limits.

I have been surfing for 12 years and really love sharing my knowledge of the ocean. At Tommy Tsunami Surf School I teach that surfing is not just a sport, but a remedy for life. It is a way to relieve your stress and forget about your worries, spiritual awakening or meditating, keeping balance, staying healthy, and enjoy the sunset as dolphins pass by.
