What you'll do
We run beach volleyball classes and camps throughout the year. This is your chance to jump in on one of our training sessions. All levels are welcome. All of our coaches are professional players but don't let that intimidate you. We are experts at keeping it fun for everyone! Once you get in touch with us we'll also invite you to sit courtside at some pro practices for no extra charge. Experience beach volleyball in the place of its birth! After class, players and coaches regularly head out for a bite to eat or (if the time is right) some cocktails at Hermosa Pier. If you are an active traveler and you want to meet some local (and not so local) friends, this is the only game in town :)
My name is Mark Burik. I compete on the AVP and on the FIVB World Tour. I have also been coaching sports for 18 years. Of course, I have been playing for much longer than that but I eventually found beach volleyball to be my true passion. I have been traveling the world coaching and competing for the last decade and I know how awesome it can be to have someone local introduce you to new friends and take you through an athletic adventure. I love meeting new people and sharing my sport with them. I hope you come with lots of questions about what it's like to travel and compete for a living :)

Where you'll be
We are just 12 blocks away from Hermosa Pier. Most of our lessons and classes take place on 2nd Street and The Strand. You can find us practicing almost any day on the right side of the showers when facing the ocean. If you are interested in observing a pro practice, we can be anywhere from Redondo to Manhattan but we will be in touch about that. After evening practices we might head to Hermosa Pier for a meal and some beverages.
Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 10 guests ages 14 and up can attend. Bring a towel, athletic wear and a water bottle. We love when players come early, meet the other players and warm up together so that ball work can start as soon as the class begins.
Since we are practicing on the beach you should definitely bring sunglasses, a hat and some sunscreen. Most people play in board shorts and bikinis but any athletic wear will do. BRING A WATER BOTTLE!
