The Complete Surfing Guide For Coaches Book

(This book first appeared in print in 1977)


This is my original surf coach book written to help surf coaches involved with the first officially recognized high school surfing league in the US, the Huntington Beach Union High School District's "Sunset League". It is also the book still used by surf coaches and high school or college instructors all over the world. I founded the city's first high school surf club at Edison High School, founded and was Huntington Beach High School's first surf coach, and founded the first high school surfing league in the Huntington Beach High School District.

Also take a look at my "Huntington Beach Memories" Giant Surfing CD Available ONLY through Mirror Image - Plenty of surf information not available anywhere else on the Intenet including historical video footage of the very first 3' 10" surfboard from 1968 and David Nuuhiwa holding and riding his very first "Fish" type board in 1969. So much info that you can't go wrong for the price. Worth taking a look. To order the full version of this CD (book included on the CD as well) click HERE
