Using TV for shooting surfing

Using TV for shooting surfing.
Was watching a show that had something to do with surf(ing) photography, when I saw this
30yr surf photography vet to new surf photographer,
30yr guy : “are you shooting in manual mode ?”
new guy : “yeah”
30yr : “I always shoot in Tv, the camera is 10 times smarter than I am”
Tv is Shutter-Priority mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit.
Tv stands for Time Value
