Online PR News – 13-May-2013 – SAN DIEGO, CA – onLessons.com, a San Diego-based company which serves as a marketplace for personal lessons, and the National Surf Schools & Instructors Association (NSSIA), the official professional association for the Surf School industry, have partnered to provide online tools to NSSIA’s certified surf instructors throughout the United States.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with NSSIA,” says Rob Hastings, onLessons.com’s CEO. “We look forward to providing NSSIA’s qualified surf instructors with online tools to help them find more surf students, schedule those students using an online booking calendar, and use management tools to keep track of their students’ information. Reducing these administrative burdens helps instructors do more of what they love – teaching people to surf.”

As a non-profit organization, NSSIA is dedicated to fostering surf etiquette, water safety, and quality surfing instruction programs through professional instructor development, education, accreditation, and research. Dr. Bruce Gabrielson serves as the organization’s director.

“As surfing and stand-up paddle continue to grow in popularity, many individuals with limited teaching backgrounds have stepped forward to offer instruction,” says Gabrielson. “For consumers, the ability to find quality instructors in this environment becomes more of a challenge.”

“NSSIA is pleased to have formed a partnership with onLessons.com in an effort to help consumers locate certified individuals that have been formally trained to provide high quality lessons. It’s a win for everyone.”
