Nicole Eddy is blogger, student and surfer who lives in Cape Town, South Africa. She’s been inspired by the magic of the ocean since riding the waves with her father and brother as a little girl. After completing a gap year abroad and an undergraduate degree at the University of Cape Town, she is currently completing an honors degree in brand management. Nicole has developed a keen sense of adventure, particularly within her own country and continent, and as a result has created a travel and lifestyle blog, NicoleEddy.com, in the hopes of sharing her stories both adventurous and personal. After she completes her studies, Nicole plans to travel the world in search of new surf, experiences and places near and far.
Nicole has been hooked on surfing since she was a wee one, splashing around with her brother and father.

Some of my favorite activities are to hike Lion's Head at sunrise or to hike the Twelve Apostles—a full‐day commitment that covers the entire Table Mountain region giving you the option to hike down the face of Table Mountain National Park or alternatively, to take the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway. I also enjoy spending a day on Clifton 4th Beach getting bronzed followed by supper along the Camps Bay strip. Some other options are to take a surf lesson at Muizenberg Beach or have a picnic at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.
