Nikki Gregg Joins BIC SUP Pro Team

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Nikki Gregg, SUP Fitness Pioneer and all-around Stand Up Paddling athlete, recently joined the BIC SUP team. In this video she talks about some of the reasons she’s so excited to be part of BIC SUP.

About Nikki: Nikki’s life is based on a solid foundation of proper health, nutrition and an active lifestyle. “When I was a kid, my dad had a second job at our local fitness club so that our family could enjoy free access. I was always there absorbing all the latest fitness trends. The gym was like my second home.” Nikki has over 13 years of experience as a professional in the fitness industry and her comprehensive and effective approach to helping her clients makes her a highly sought after trainer.

While living and training on the north shore of Oahu in 2007, Nikki discovered stand up paddling as a new way to enjoy the ocean and found that it got her super fit and her clients began to notice. Nikki then developed one of the very first Stand Up Paddle fitness programs and is known as a pioneer within the industry, particularly in SUP fitness and whitewater. A truly caring and inspiring woman, Nikki wins over the hearts of everyone she meets with her genuine smile, quirky personality and enthusiastic attitude. She is currently based out of Hood River, Oregon.

2011 Reno River Festival SUP Downriver Race Recap with Watermans Nikki Greg

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

SUP duo, dan gavere and Nikki Gregg, finished on top at the 2011 Reno River Festival SUP Downriver Sprint in Reno, NV last weekend.  The four mile

course down the Truckee River was flowing at high levels (up to 3000cfs), was fast and intense with plenty of carnage.  All twenty racers took off during the mass start and battled their way through the rapids.

Near the finish was the most challenging and technical of all the rapids.  The spectator friendly finale rapid ran through the Reno whitewater course, where serious river skills came into play to make or break each competitor’s finishing times.  Even many highly skilled and experienced paddlers

ended up swimming through the finish line, some requiring a throw rope from the safety crew to pull them to shore and out of the fast moving current.

 

Dan Gavere had a clean run and won the race in just around 15 minutes, beating out 2nd place, Taylor Robertson, by one second.

Nikki Gregg also had a solid run, passing two competitors in the final rapid to earn a 1st place women’s finish and even crushing most of the male competitors with a 5th place overall finish.

This is the second year in a row that Dan has won this event and states that “This year’s Reno River Fest was super fun because of the high water levels and the record attendance of over 35, 000 spectators in attendance throughout the weekend.  It was the largest exposure to the sport of SUP that I’ve seen to date.”

Top 5 Finishers:

1.     Dan Gavere

2.     Taylor Robertson

3.     Michael Tavares

4.     Ken Hoeve

5.     Nikki Gregg
