Endo’s to one pieces I’m from a BMX background, always loosing skin doing endos or 360’s. Usually in flip flops! I learned to ski in Glenshee at the age of seven. We used to ski in bin bags because it was raining so much. We hiked through knee deep mud to the one and only button tow, but it was still worth it. Before I started snowboarding I was obsessed with mogul skiing. I entered the European mogul challenge one year and won an event. I think I’d reached a level that I thought was my limit and therefore I started to become bored with it. I also felt skiing was too structured, and that snowboarding had a much more open view on how the mountain could be ridden. Also the prospect of so much to learn with a snowboard excited me incredibly. It’s a rare occasion that I put on skis these days. Nothing against skiers, some of my best mates are skiers, but I love snowboarding and want to keep doing it for as long as the gods permit it.

Achievements

Tignes to the Present day On arriving in the Alps I set up Alliance Snowboarding, a school that I am so proud to have been a part of. Alliance needed to go its own direction. I’m super grateful for the memories and the good times, but things change. So what now? I’m focusing on areas of riding that I am the most passionate about and believe I coach best – off-piste, young riders, performance courses, camps, personal coaching and freestyle sessions. This is going to be my third season as Rebel Alliance Snowboarding, and they have been the best three seasons that I’ve ever had. I’ve had so much support from previous clients and to be honest after doing this job for so long they are some of my best friends nowadays. I guess that’s the ultimate perk of the job really. So, for this year, my goal is to teach to the best of my ability and enable each and every person that comes to ride with me to have the snowboarding experience of their lives. I love a challenge.
