Who are Snowboard Coach?

Snowboard Coach was the first and original independent snowboard coaching company in the UK established in 2002 by Ash Newnes who, from riding and teaching for 25 years, is one of the most respected coach's in the British snowboard scene and a BASI trainer since 2003. 
Snowboard Coach has grown since the early days and now consists of a group of BASI Snowboard Trainers, ISIA’s and ISTD’s. 
Snowboard Coach deliver a variety of UK based riding and Instructor courses all year round in many of the indoor snow centres. 
During the winter we offer many courses to help you progress through your BASI snowboard career. We have a winter base in the tax and duty free resort of Arinsal in Andorra. This allows us to make our courses great value for money whilst ensuring your training is only done by the highest qualified BASI riders who are part of the Snowboard Coach Crew. We don’t use entry level instructors or instructors from other organisations.
We are not just a company selling courses from an office and getting someone else to train you…we do it all ourselves from the training to the exams and the beers in between, we spend the whole winter with you.
