Like so many professionals in instructional fields, Erik Nelsen finds his teaching goes hand in hand with his personal passion. Nelsen's gift, however, is that one fuels the other in an earnest, inspirational way. Just weeks after helping a group of kids surf their first one-foot waves and reminding them to stay balanced and positive, that same advice resonates with Nelsen when he's off looking for the right 10-footer in Fiji or Mexico.

The lifelong surfer built his Erik Nelsen Surf Camps business out of the ocean-themed adventure camps his father used to run when Nelsen was just a kid. Working at those early summer camps cemented both Nelsen's entrepreneurial spirit and his ability to act as a force of encouragement for young people. Learn more in the video above.
