I have been teaching private surf lessons all year round at Oceanside Pier for 10 years. I teach all ages and individuals to groups. I have two books on surfing and three videos. I teach more students than any indivdual in Oceanside. Students come from all over the world and take lessons while on vacation. I also teach locals from Marine base, business travelers, high school and college students. I am recommended by surf shops and three local major hotels, plus Trip Advisor.

Mark was kind, patient, and a gave thorough insight into surfing for my family and I. Very impressed. I wouldve like to know more about flexibility and how to strengthen muscle groups before hand. Otherwise it was money well spent.

Surfing everyday, built website and posted every day on learning to surf. Google put me at top of "Surf Lessons in Oceanside" and I started teaching. 

All ages from 7 to 77. Kids, teens, and adults who have never surfed to those who have had some experience. 

Have taught big groups who visit Oceanside and want to learn to surf together and then practice after lessons. 

Look at history of teaching. Many teachers here are high school students who know how to surf but have never taught others. 

How many students do you teach a year? How long have you been teaching?
