THURSO SURF Ambassadors

Alicia Erskine

Ali left the corporate world behind to follow her passion of working with dogs. She started her own dog hiking business, West Coast Heeler Pack, which has led to Engaged K9 training and boarding. On Ali’s “off” days you will finding her doing more training, competing in dog sports, doing more hiking, camping, 4x4ing and of course paddle boarding on the Thurso Max which accommodates herself, her fiancé, Colten and their 3 dogs, Kona, Cali and Ruger. Living on Vancouver Island, they are lucky to have so many beautiful lakes, coastline, trails and mountains to explore. Ali’s goal is to educate others on dog etiquette, training in simple steps, and inspiring others to get out and do more with their dogs.

Meet Nick & Alli! Adventure couple chasing their dreams wherever it may take them. Based out of Lake Tahoe, Nick and Alli have a passion for capturing beautiful places and experiences on camera!

You might find them touring up a mountain to score a fresh line, surfing down in Costa Rica, or paddle boarding with their dog Timmy. Although it may be hard to track them down, no matter where they are or what they are doing you can be certain they are wholeheartedly enjoying every second of it with big smiles on their faces. One thing they want you to remember, tomorrow’s adventure begins today!

Kristine Krynitzki

Kristine has dedicated her life to helping others connect with the natural world since she began her career in environmental conservation. As the Executive Director for a wildlife education charity in Vancouver called Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society, her team works with tens of thousands of underprivileged children every year, teaching them about animals and their habitat through hands-on experiential programs both indoors and out in the field. She spends every spare moment paddling her Waterwalker along the shores of Vancouver’s Pacific Ocean, and the surrounding mountain’s high alpine lakes thanks to Thurso Surf’s travel backpack, or exploring the peaks and wilds of British Columbia as leader of the local hiking community called Hikes Near Vancouver.
