surfing photos of Gerry Kantor
Kantor is a second generation
San Diegan who grew up in the Point Loma and South Mission Beach
areas, both of which are known for their numerous surfing reef
breaks and beaches. He bodysurfed at a very young age, and started
surfing in the early 1960's. He wrote for Surfer Magazine (known
as "the Bible of the Sport") in the 1980's, and traveled
extensively for surf in France, Mexico, Costa Rica and Hawaii.
He is a graduate of nearby UCSD in La Jolla.
Instructors are certified with one or more of the following ARC
certifications: Lifeguard Certified / CPR for the Professional
Rescuer / First Aid Title 22 / First Aid-CPR-AED/
EMT (Emergency Medical Tech)
We are always searching for qualified individuals for surf instructor
employment and training. Prefered qualifications: over 18, college
student or graduate, 10 or more years California surfing experience,
and California or San Diego native. We also consider all other
qualifications. ALL INSTRUCTORS
MUST GET AMERICAN RED CROSS CERTIFICATIONS: LIFEGUARD TRAINING
OR CPR AND FIRST AID TRAINING FOR THE PROFESSIONAL RESCUER.
THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
You can do this after you are working, but if you have these or
similar (EMT) certifications already, this will increase your
chances of working as an instructor. We will be hiring a lot of
instructors this summer, and also a telephone scheduler, who can
work from home with a computer and land line telephone. JOB
