Golden Years with Tim Curran


Today, several years removed from the hectic, whirlwind life on the ASP world tour, Ventura’s Timmy Curran is in a much different place. He spends most of his sessions in the water at home, bouncing around between the multitude of world-class beachbreaks and world-class pointsbreaks that he grew up on. Unexpectedly, he’s now championing a fairly successful music career, which helps keep the creative palette moist.
