Hello, my name is Tammie Dalrymple. I am an adventurous person that has a passion for the outdoors!
Do you ocean surf, wake surf, river surf, paddle surf? Any or all of the above?
I wake surf. I have also attempted ocean surfing in Costa Rica, Australia, Hawaii, and California. Total epic fail at anything bigger than a baby wave but still a total blast just being on the water!
How did you get into surfing? In Atlanta or somewhere else?
I was introduced to wake surfing 8 years ago. Became fast friends with an amazing wake surf pro, John Ackerman, and fell in love with the sport.
Where and how often do you surf?
We love to spend the summer with friends on the lake surfing it up making fun memories! My family and I even competed in the national championship at Callaway Gardens one year!
What is your favorite thing about surfing?
It is such a good feeling to share the love of surfing with other people and see them smiling on that surfer high!!
