From there it was windsurfing, dirt bikes, and skydiving before discovering the mountains and winter sports, where he found his passion for snowboarding in 1993.
After gaining a few seasons riding experience he successfully completed his first BASI Instructor course and by 2000 Steph had become a Trainer for BASI . Since then, he has been very active, running instructor courses all over Europe and as far afield as Argentina and China, as well as teaching clients of various nationalities.
He was also Head Coach for the Royal Navy Snowboard team for 6 seasons, before committing all his time to teaching his regular snowboard school clientele,

It was a pleasure spending an afternoon with Stephan, he helped myself and my girlfriend out a lot despite the snowy conditions at the time in Val D'Isere. Very pleasant chap with a good style of teaching. Highly recommended.

Steph taught 3 of us with mixed levels of experience, but we all learnt a lot of great tips on how to improve our style and technique. It really helped that he explained why certain changes to our technique would improve our snowboarding. Very friendly and we’ll definitely use him again.

Unfortunately Stephan was unable to take the lessons due to an injury. However he called me and had set up another great instructor to take the lessons and looked after us and sorted everything out. He was very helpful and the lessons with the replacement instructor were great.

Steph has been my instructor for the last 4 years and I can highly recommend him. He is not only a great instructor, but also a very nice person to spend your day with on the slopes. What I really like about Steph is that he has a vast variety of tips and tricks to improve my riding. He is very flexible in his approach and always manages to motivate me in particular when I am frustrated with myself. My riding has improved a lot across groomers, park and in the backcountry. Thanks Steph!

Steph has taught me to snowboard from day 1, for the last 2 seasons and is the best instructor! He is very patient and relaxed as well as very knowledgeable about his sport and every lesson is different. He knows the ski area extremely well, and always has new places to take us boarding. He has a great way of teaching, and always knows pretty much instantly what you could tweak to board better.... 100% recommended, most qualified and experienced instructor in Val, you will not regret having lessons with him!!!

FAQs
Where is the meeting point?

You can arrange the meeting point with your chosen instructor by using the Maison Sport messaging system. We recommend agreeing this before you book your lessons, but it can always be arranged at a later date. The instructor should be able to suggest somewhere that is convenient for you both.

What qualifications do the instructors have?

All instructors listed on Maison Sport have been verified by their nation's governing body, be it the French Government's Department of Sport, Swiss Ski Federation or The Italian Winter Sports Federation, so you can rest assured you will be in safe hands when you’re on the slopes.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

Generally no more than 8 people, each instructor has their own policy for this, so it is best to just double check with them by sending a message. Most instructors won't charge extra if there is more than 1 person taking part in the lesson, but always best to check with them before booking.s
