Mel came to BC 2 years ago and fell in love with the west coast, just like the rest of us. Mel grew up as a gymnast but swapped the lycra tights for neoprene tights when she matured into adulthood. Since she left Germany, where she is originally from, Mel has spent the winters split-boarding in the mountains and the summers surfing in Tofino, all while living in a sweet van with lots of storage. Mel's love for traveling has taken her to countries all around the world but there are many more to cross off the list. Mel simply loves the outdoors and is always looking for a new adventure.
