Get Stoked! Let’s Go Surfing

I feel deep gratitude for a sport that allowed me to achieve the U.S. Amateur Surfing Championship title and travel the world as a professional surfer.  I am compelled to give back to the sport that has done so much for me by sharing my knowledge and skills with other aspiring surfers.  I’m dedicated to providing extra personalized attention to guide you through the complete surfing process.  I will share my expert insights, individual assistance, and personal guidance, to deliver great surf lessons, a fun time, and the healing peace that comes with a great day surfing!

Meet Chris “Big B” Burke    ”Surfing saved my life, more than once… Now, it’s my turn to give back to the sport than has done so much for me!”

When I made the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) National Team, the requirements included staying in school, and keeping a C average.  During that time I was coached and inspired by legendary world surf champions Peter “P.T.” Townsend and Ian Cairns. I remember how much their influence and direction changed my surfing.  Under their guidance, it wasn’t long until I won the U.S. amateur surf championships.  Without such exceptional coaching, my surfing would never have risen to the podium so quickly.

My surfing career led to incredible adventures and countless opportunities.  When I left the competition circuit, I landed an entry level marketing position in the surf industry.  I went on to co-found two iconic action sports companies and travel the world again.  I believe surfing has so much to offer and it is always here for us; it is up to us to take advantage of it’s blessings.
