Tim Hazelip  & Jean Pierre Pereat 

Avid surfers Timothy Hazelip and Jean Pierre Pereat (aka: JP or Pelican) founded what was originally called the Malibu Under Dogs in 2014. After JP’s nephew William was diagnosed with autism nearly 20 years ago, JP used his passion and knowledge for surfing to take William out on a board and connect with the ocean together. He realized that William was benefiting from their paddle outs when he came back onto shore a calmer and more confident person. Tim and JP saw the change the water could instill in an individual from decades of experience in the ocean, and knew that children and adults could benefit from surf therapy. They took the culture of their beloved city of Malibu and the extraordinary power of the ocean to create what would now become The Mighty Under Dogs.
