Tyler Farnham Biography

Tyler was born and raised in Cocoa Beach Florida and is a lifelong surfer.

His journey began as a lifeguard captain whilst studying to become an EMT/Firefighter, sprinkle in a Billabong model girlfriend, regular surfing combined with a passion for skydiving and it's fair to say life was looking good.

Wind in his sails he felt life could get no better, he was right. Then life decided to give him a savage U turn.

Easter Sunday of 2009 Farnham took his mom skydiving for her very first time.

No one could have predicted how that day would turn out: A parachute malfunction, high speed collision back to earth, and a medically induced coma. Five days after the coma Farnham woke up on his 26th birthday with a new grim reality.

The compound fracture was so severe his right leg was nearly amputated, he snapped his femur, broke his upper and lower right arm, shattered both his condyles, fractured his mandible, broke nine teeth that had to be extracted, and fractured his skull. His body was completely destroyed.

His spirit however refused to be crushed.

Once being told his life may never get back to where it was, Farnham took action. Whilst sitting in a wheelchair with his mouth wired shut he began journaling about each day in rehab, (writing with his off hand due to injuries).

After clearing the fog of a physically and emotionally strenuous rehab, Farnham fell victim to Oxycontin dependency just as the love of his life decided to leave him.

Yet again, something inside refused to let him self destruct and after 11 months of physical rehabilitation, Farnham did the impossible- he started surfing again, regained his position as a ocean rescue captain saving lives and shockingly to some, started skydiving again.

His efforts as a captain saw him awarded a lifesaving valor award as well as lifeguard of the year.

In 2012 Farnham began training to be the best lifeguard he could be with the vision of international shores on his mind and the opportunity to continue his love of lifeguarding and surfing.

11 years have passed since Farnham left Florida and he has since traveled the world doing what he loves, surf coaching, lifeguarding and his newfound passion of speaking.

He speaks on topics such as overcoming adversity, leadership and getting out of the comfort zone.

Farnham is a published author, with two titles to date and is currently in a managerial role at the internationally renowned Nihi Sumba resort.
