AVP Professional Mark Burik breaks down serving with junior beach volleyball player

 If you're interested in this blog on serving in beach volleyball, you may be interested in our serving course, which will have you serving more accurately, with more power, in just a few weeks! We'd also love to have you drop by one -- or more -- of our beach volleyball classes, private lessons and training camps for adults and juniors in Hermosa Beach, CA and Salt Lake City, Utah. We run volleyball vacations in exotic locations around the world. We can even run beach volleyball clinics for your group, club or team in your hometown! Send an email to [email protected]

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.
