Hey! My name’s Tyler Bell and I was born and raised just north of San Diego, California. I’ve been backpacking and traveling for most of my adult life, and the ocean has been a focus for most of that.
I grew up skimboarding and body boarding and was first introduced to surfing as a young teen. In the summer my parents dropped me off at Oceanside Pier for surf camp. The ocean taught me so much about myself back then and it continues to today.
Now I’m a tour guide mostly, leading SUP, surf, free-diving, hiking, diving and kayak trips. I still surf as much as possible and have a deep admiration of the ocean. Besides a love of water, I enjoy growing food, building, books, friends and family, yoga, music, bonfires and adventure.
