My passion for snowboarding

I am from Savoie, and more specifically from Chambéry. So I had the chance to discover high mountains and ski resorts very early on. Snowboarder for more than 15 years, I definitely specialized in this discipline by becoming a snowboard instructor 7 years ago. I have since taught my passion in many countries: Spain, New Zealand, Switzerland and France, of course.

Freestyle Snowboard in Val Thorens

What do I like most about snowboarding? Freestyle! I had the opportunity to participate in several freestyle competitions, including the French Freestyle and Half-Pipe Championships.

Freestyle, which is not without risk at a high level, can be a very fun way to learn and progress quickly in snowboarding. I always suggest to my students who wish to discover a few small figures, always in complete safety of course, starting on the flat. For those who have a sufficient level, I also suggest trying the easiest modules of the Val Thorens snowpark.

My greatest satisfaction as a freestyle snowboard instructor? Watching beginners pull off little tricks and things they never imagined they could do a few days earlier.

My snowboard training

In France, the teaching of snowboarding is only authorized by obtaining a ski instructor. In these courses, only 5% of the training is dedicated to snowboarding, and the teaching of freestyle snowboarding is almost non-existent.

At the end of the course, only a small part of passionate instructors devote themselves to this sport, to really become good snowboard instructors and be able to teach freeride and snowboard freestyle.

For my part, I decided to train in Switzerland, where snowboarding is considered a discipline in its own right. This allowed me to acquire a specific snowboard education to transmit my passion to beginners and experienced snowboarders.
