Testimonials from Regular Folks,
“In 25 years of great times, the most fun I’ve ever had with Marco. If old ladies with zero board experience can do it, so can you. The Surf-Thirty team will make it so easy, your mom could do it"
Sharon Pinto Soto, retired, Doctor Design employee #2
”I popped up and got hooked! It helped that my mentors were incredibly patient and always encouraged me. Just do it!"
Janet Fagan, Senior Account Executive, Time Warner Telecom
“It was surprisingly easy to get up and going, and I’m not a surfer. It was a ton of fun and not at all scary or dangerous”
Justin Wilson, Wine Director, La Valencia Hotel
"I went out with the Surf-Thirty team for the first time recently and had a blast! I got up immediately and there is something about surfing a never ending wave…"
Andrew Beinbrink, Founder & CEO, Sports Force
"I was definitely nervous.... I don't do watersports and I don't do heart-pounding, adrenaline-fueled experiences. It turned out to be easy and fun! The Surf-Thirty team will give you simple, clear instructions to get going. And before you know it you're up and surfing!. It was a great way to experience the fun part of surfing without the learning curve."
Kathy Taylor, CEO, Attagirl!
"Maybe I swallowed a little water at first, but after a day on the Bay I feel a lot better about surfing!
It was a blast! A beautiful day all-around. I'd never done anything like that so it took a few tries, but once you're up, you've got it! Totally fun! Beats staring at the computer, hands down! A fine way to spend a few hours in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. "
Harvey Starr, CEO, StarrLabs
If you know Marco, you know anything he says is fun will be a great time. It took me about 30 seconds to realize wakesurfing is more thrilling than anything I have done behind a boat. If you don’t know Marco, you should … and what better time to do it than learning a great sport under the sun on Mission Bay. You need to do this!"
Tim McConnell, VP Engineering, Solekai Systems
"Wakesurfing is not only a blast but it's easy and addictive. Not matter what your athletic level, you will be asking Marco to go out on the boat again."
Jenn Karlman, Director of Marketing Air2Air Corp/FOX News Reporter.
From Surfers & Professional Surfers
”Wakesurfing with Marco was way more fun than most surf sessions. It was a great way to break up the monotony of paddle surfing.”
Dave Langer, Professional towsurfer
"Great fun, great people! A surf-Thirty session can prove excellent for improving & increasing the power of your surfing stance."
Mark Livingston, Big Wave Surfer & President, PrimaPharm, Inc.
“I have surfed 20' waves but never a 3' wave with so much energy. You and the guys are a hoot to hang out with. Surfs up!”
Bob Krause, Founder & CEO, Ignite Production Group
“Brought my girlfriend and she was stoked. Watching her surf for minutes on end was priceless.”
Dave Langer, Professional towsurfer
"The Surf-Thirty experience is 90% surfing, unlike conventional surfing that is 80% paddling, 15% surfing and 5% getting smashed in a wave."
Rory Moore, surfer, scuba diver, stunt pilot, technology entrepreneur, Co-Founder of EvoNexus, CEO of CommNexus
"What is not to love about a perfectly formed, constantly peeling, waist-high right without the hassle of aggressive locals or ubiquitous kooks? Surf-Thirty presents an incredibly long ride time juxtaposed with a learning curve that is extremely short. "
John Otterson, surfer, kiter, all-round oceaneer, Co-founder of the UCSD Moores Cancer Center Luau & Longboard Invitational, and Partner at SVB Capital.
"Marco grinned in anticipation of me making a fool of myself on a surfboard. Fooled him! It's easier and less hassle than you think. I thought it would be as tough as learning to slalom ski. Wrong. If you have ever surfed, skied, or, snow boarded, its a piece of cake! The boat moves, you stand up and drop into the curl. It's that easy. Hot chicks do it! So can you!. Camaraderie, athletic fun, and as easy or as hard as you want to make it. What more could you ask for?"
Mike Doerr, pilot, body surfer, once-a-surfer, snorkeler, skier, bicyclist, jogger, terrible-golfer, entrepreneur, publisher, President Air2Air Charter, "Your cost effective personal airline."
"Wakesurfing is a lot of fun but also a great way to work on your regular surfing style because of the long rides and controlled waves."
Bryan Elliott, Founder & CEO, SoCal Action Sports Network
