One of the most formidable aspects of AVP pro, and Better at Beach CEO Mark Burik, beach volleyball skill sets is his serve. He has so many different types of serves it's a little difficult to count: jump serve, standing float, jump float, jump serve with side spin, jump serve with no spin. It's difficult for any player, at any level, to be comfortable passing, especially since he makes virtually every one look the same.
As such, he's one of the best coaches and mentors in beach volleyball when it comes to serving. It's why players of all levels come to him for video or in-person analysis to help them with serving, which is, as Reid Priddy once described it, "the best defense you can have."
It doesn't matter if your blocking is a little off, or your digs aren't consistent, so long as you're serving aces. It's the easiest, fastest way to earn points in beach volleyball. If you're interested in scheduling a one-on-one session with Burik, he'd LOVE to work with you. Just click this link to schedule one today! And if you're in Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, or anywhere in the South Bay, we'd love to have you drop by one of our beach volleyball classes.
