Today I'm really stoked to introduce you to my guest the Oceanrider Peter Fabor. Peter has built a life around surfing ever since he discovered the sport. In fact, this is one of the reasons he became a digital nomad and set up shop in the Canary Islands, where he started one of the first co-working spaces on the archipelago. I'll let you discover what Peter got up to over there and how he's now built a business that revolves around surfing.

“The perfect combination for me is to combine the ocean and the mountains and if I have enough of these two, my life is in perfect balance.” -Peter Fabor

Today Peter runs a successful incentive travel agency called, Surf Office and is creating tools and trips for teams that are either spaced out geographically or too busy to get to know each other and build an effective work relationship. In fact, Peter’s business is even more relevant today, where the number of remote workers is on an exponential rise. In this episode, Peter shares a few tips for genuine team-building and talks about his other side hustle, Surfpreneurs Club. It's an online community for surf-related businesses that he's developing. And we also get to talk about Peter’s second passion, which is building Tiny Homes.

I hope you enjoy this episode.

Take care, have fun, and enjoy the waves.
