SNOWBOARD SPECIALIST! Beginner - Advanced, Freestyle, Off-Piste and discovering the Backcountry. I can help you improve and have more fun standing sideways! I've spent the last 17 years teaching my passion and loving every minute of it. I have worked in France, NewZealand and the USA extensively where I trained and developed new instructors for the AASI Western devision. I hold some of the worlds highest SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR qualifications through BASI and AASI. I also hold the French Carte Pro. I still get a buzz out of sharing this amazing sport with others and seeing them improve.
David is a genuine, enthusiastic response instructor. His in-depth local knowledge has proved invaluable to assisting the continuined development of our snowboarding skills. He was patient, responsive and really supportive. Highly recommend. Look forward to seeing him next year.
Dave has been extremely easy to deal with right from booking through to meeting for lessons, he also has great experience and fantastic at adapting to beginners. He’s made the family’s trip and my 8 year old son has said he would return if Dave is his instructor again.
I had an ace lesson with David! My first afternoon on the snow had left me in absolute agony so I was actually dreading kitting up the next morning but the first thing David did was check my boots and later adjusted my stance and settings on my board. After a few runs he had improved my technique enough to relieve all the pain, which I was so grateful for, and then we worked on different techniques on loads of different terrians. David explained everything really clearly, and gave really useful feedback all the way through, encouraging me without pushing. I haven't been on my board in three years, but in one morning I went from able to manage a Blue slope, to loving Reds and even tackled a bit of Black! Cannot recommend this highly enough, worth every cent!
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.
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.
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
