I have been running my Technical Performance Clinic courses for over 20 years, constantly developing and refining the content to give you everything you need and nothing you don’t, in order to explore ‘Perfect Snowboard Technique’ in its simplest and most effective form.
Designed for Intermediate and above riders, this course will lead you through an exciting exploration of Snowboard technique combining the ‘Science’ and ‘Art’ of Perfect Snowboard Technique, teaching you how to understand and feel for the natural way to ride, creating the perfect technique for any given riding challenge both on and off the piste.
During the course we will study the ‘Science’ behind how the board works so that you can understand how to flex, steer and turn it ‘by design rather than force’.
We will look at the ‘Science’ of how we stand and move and explore the link between our bio mechanics and the subtle pressure movements that are applied through our feet to control and turn the board as we ride down the mountain.
We will explore the ‘Art’ of how to read and ride the mountains natural terrain, learning how to control your speed by the line you choose, enabling you to flow with the mountains terrain rather than constantly fighting against it.
The Technical Performance Clinic is where the ride becomes more than simply getting from A to B, but about the journey in between.
