Nicole Pacelli BIO-

Nicole Pacelli was born in the Brazilian coastal city of Guarujá. She later moved to São Paulo, where she grew up with the waves of Maresias Beach.

She began regular surfing but started using a stand up paddle board that had been gifted to her dad. After her dad partnered with a local manufacturing company, Nicole started using a smaller paddle board. She developed her surfing style and more.

By 22 years old, she had become the very first champion of the Women’s Stand Up World Tour in the wave category.  Later the following year at the Turtle Bay Women’s Pro in Hawaii she crowned another victory.
