Tessa Timmons


Tessa was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico but grew up in San Diego, CA where she fell in love with surfing. When she is not traveling, or riding her longboard she can be found dreaming of opening her own restaurant someday. She says that she loves researching nutrition with whole foods and would love to be able to share her knowledge with the people coming in to eat at her restaurant.

Tessa can usually be found at Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz with her toes on the noes but last year Tessa and a few friends sent out on a trip of a lifetime. Driving their truck along the coast from Santa Cruz, CA all the way to Salina Cruz, Mexico. They drove through Baja and crossed over to mainland stopping at the most noteworthy surf breaks, and scored them!

She has always been inspired by people moving and changing this world for the better. They really want to prove a point and choose to not use any single use plastics on their trip. That means no plastic water bottles, plastic straws, plastic bags, and disposable cutlery along the way. Such a great challenge, especially in Mexico! Wow. They filmed along the way and made an awesome movie about the whole journey.
