Tim Cameron knew he loved watersports when he realized he could walk on water—sort of. He actually water-skis barefoot, a sport that he picked up after an 8-year stint in the world of motocross. Since his initial affair with aquatic thrills, he's continued to quench his thirst for adrenaline through various other watersports—including kneeboarding—and turned his passion into a business with Triple X Surf and Skim in 2004.
Today, there are two Triple X Surf and Skim retail stores in the sunshine state, where patrons can visit to pick up boards and accessories or learn how to ride the waters. People of all ages and skill levels—from adrenaline-junkie kids to 75-year-old seniors who've never set food on a board—partake in surfing lessons that take place right outside of the Daytona Beach location. All lessons maintain a five-to-one student-teacher ratio, so participants can enjoy individualized attention from their instructors, some of whom surf competitively and habitually ditch Surfaholics Anonymous meetings.
