Tim Geithner Is Good Tipper, Good Surfer, Says Instructor Dave

Over the weekend, "a man named Tim" made a reservation for a surf lesson at Open Ocean Surf Lessons in Half Moon Bay, for himself and his daughter. When six people showed up, instructor David Alexander thought nothing of it, figuring the other guys were "just business associates." When he suggested the suits, who were not taking part, wait in a near by restaurant, he was told, "No, I gotta watch." Alexander again thought nothing of it, until Geithner's daughter cued him into the fact that a) those guys were Secret Service and b) who dad was. "Who knows, he probably just unloads all the economy in the water," Dave told a reporter. "You know that's a lot of unloading....oh my god, you'd need at least a few sessions for that."
