Gaia Pazienti
Half Moon Bay, CA

Gaia Pazienti has been a soul surfer since her first ever session at 14 years old and spent much time thereafter surfing southern Californian and north Mexican waters, as surfing had become her personal outlet of connection and healing.  She first encountered formal surf therapy in 2014 working for Shaka Surf Club supporting people with disabilities and adolescents in rehabilitation programs to develop a deeper connection to themselves, one another and the natural world through surfing and movement.   Since that time, Gaia witnessed first-hand the profoundly transformational effects that surfing and ocean play have on the human being - physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.  She feels it is her personal mission in life to engage others in Ocean connection, healing and community to strengthen human awareness of life's interdependence, and thus assist to co-create a more harmonious and peaceful world.
