The peninsula lost a good man on the 26/6/2012,after surfing at the heads it seems Tim might have suffered a heart attack,he was the number 1 shaper for Balin surfboards and will be sadly missed by all in the surfing community.
Very sad news numbnuts. RIP Tim.
Tim was an inspiration as a young Grommet for me . He was very laid back , and pretty much let his Surfing do his talking .
He was definitely someone to look up to with his approach to Heavy rarely surfed waves in the Region . Long after sharing waves with him years ago , i was surprised to find that he in fact grew up in the same area , and his family was friends with our family's friends .
I'm sure his lean figure Dropping into decent waves will be missed for years to come .... Gone too Early . R.I.P .

One of the peninsulas finest. Thanks for shaping me all those boards over the years. You always had time for a chat when i would come in and pester you about where you been surfing and how boards do different things! It's fitting that your last surf was at a place where you were the stand-out every time you paddled out there.
Gone way too soon big fella.
The news of Tims death early this week was hard to believe. He will be missed by so many people because he was such a great guy to talk to not just about boards about anything and he always had time for you. i will have a can of Melbourne after a surf this arvo for you Tim.
