Hi Everyone and Ayubowan, just chilling with my morning coffee here in my little slice of paradise on the south coast of Sri Lanka. My name’s Tim Postlethwaite, originally from the tiny island of Alderney in the Channel Islands. I grew up surfing, fishing and sailing in the North Atlantic, which made for a great childhood, but I can’t say I miss the cold water much.
After doing my BSc in Sports Science and Physiology I was a PT for a while, before going into teaching (Mathematics of all things!) I ended up landing a post in Malaysia, with easy access to warm water waves all across Indo, as well as a surprisingly good left-hand point on the east coast at Cherating.
Eventually washed up here in Sri Lanka with my family, and we’ve barely left since. With the south and east on opposite seasons it’s always going off somewhere. Plus the locals are great, the food’s spicy and the wildlife’s unreal!
Catch you over here sometime, always happy to share the stoke!
