I have been training with Mark for over two years since I started competing in masters competitions at surf carnivals. I have gained a great deal from his coaching expertise and experience as a competitor. His carefully constructed training sessions develop paddling techniques, speed, endurance and race tactics.
I have seen him work successfully with a range of competitors of varying ages from 15 to Masters, and his ability to individualise his coaching to maximise achievement is impressive. Since working with Mark, I have improved in paddling fitness, confidence and technique. During competitions, Mark is calm and analytical and a great asset to any competitor and during training he has a positive demeanour, is well organised, flexible and supportive. I recommend him as a coach of great value.
