A funny thing happened when I was on my way to Teach at an ISS Trade Show.
I was standing in line and heard Balboa being discussed…what I heard was…“Balboa, they really know their Sh**t, but when you need to find it in a video later, it takes too much time…”  From that, the Balboa Bits were born.  Three to seven-minute instructions on a particular technique.  Designed to give you that instant answer when you need it.  While this does not take the place of the thorough training you get in our 90-minute classes that are part of our Learning Package, the “Bits” will get you through in a crunch and help you meet your deadline.

Starting with 50 Videos, First of the videos will be available Starting November 15, 2021.  Once the first 50 videos are Uploaded and available, our price will be $350 with a yearly Renewal of $75 each year. Your price for being one of the first is $100, with $50 due each calendar year.  You may suspend your subscription when you feel you have enough “Bits”.  All Bits will be available for $10 each if and when you decide you want to pick and choose.
