Private Surf lessons in Marin

Stinson Beach, CA , United States

About Your Host

I am a mother, a surfer. and an entrepreneur. I am a coach at a cross-fit gym. I am an active outdoors person and guide. I am easy-going and positive minded. I am in the process of a teacher training to become a meditation facilitator in nature. Surfing is my main passion, and I have been surfing for 25 years. I grew up here in Marin, and learned to surf at Bolinas and Stinson during my high school years. After being a snowboard instructor for 5 years in places including Alaska and Aspen, I switched gears and began teaching surf lessons while traveling in Australia 10 years ago. About 2 years ago I started Marin Outdoor Adventures. I am interested in being outside, appreciating Mother Nature, and helping others to do so as well. My specialty is exploring everything that Marin County has to offer and sharing it with others. I take people hiking, running, surfing, mountain biking, and meditating, in the wild beauty of Marin County. "Ones destination is never a place, but rather a new way of seeing things." ~Henry Miller

About Nicki: Born and raised in Marin, I have been surfing the local Marin County breaks for 25 years. In my 20's I was a competitive snowboarder and worked as a professional snowboard instructor throughout Colorado and up in the far North of Alaska. After graduating from Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado, my passion for the ocean and surfing brought me to Byron Bay, Australia where I began teaching surfing lessons in one of the worlds most famous surf spots. I offer safe, fun instruction in appropriate conditions in one of the most beautiful coastal regions in the world. Lessons are a minimum of 2 hours long.
