Nicole Close is a self-proclaimed mermaid touched by breast cancer and the founder of the Saltwatercure Fund. Originally from Vancouver, B.C. she now lives on the east coast of Canada in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  Her  connection to the ocean and love of surfing were integral to her treatment and healing. It continues to remind her to be more present in her daily life and to let go of what she can not control and to play.

“When I surf, the world falls away and I am in the moment, in that space in between movement and stillness; between the past and the future. It is when I am the most present and feel the most alive.”

Nicole make films, teaches movement, surfs, advocates & raises money for individuals with breast cancer through the Saltwatercure Fund and hangs out with her neighbours dogs. She is grateful for her world and happy to share a little bit of it with you.
