About

Hi! My name is Joe and I'm a snowboard instructor. I'm from Newcastle, England and I love riding everything the mountain has to offer. I teach all ages and ability levels. 

I trained as a snowboard instructor in Canada in 2010. Since then I've honed my teaching to cater to every level of snow rider. I genuinely care about my student's progress and believe that the best lessons are those which are fun packed and challenging. 

On my off days you'll catch me in the trees or in the park! Say hello if you see me on the mountain :)

I've been boarding for a few years now but my skills had plateaued, so I decided to book a lesson to improve my overall riding as well as learn some new skills in the park...so I glad I did.. what an awesome 2 hours and what a great instructor. Joel is great at analysing and correcting your riding in a super chilled and relaxed manner, at the same time he pushes you out of your comfort zone just enough to get the best out of you and really improve your riding. Irregardless of what you want to focus/improve on, carving, freestyle or off piste Joel is all over it and can get you doing it better than you thought possible in a surprisingly short space of time. I learnt so much in just 2 short hours and am now a much more well rounded and confident snowboarder. Best coaching I've ever had and since my lesson I have been confidently hitting kickers in the park with success!! Couldn't be happier - thanks Joel!!

We all really had lots of fun with Joe in our private lessons, especially my son Kaiser! He loves Joe so much n Joe really did his best coaching skill to us. We still can't believe that we can ride the snowboard just in three days, but we really made it! Thank Q Joe, and hope can see u in Hokkaido soon!

The lesson with Joe was awesome. In just two hours I have finally managed to kick my bad habits and am now super confident turning at speed down all kinds of terrain! Cannot recommend Joe enough!!!

Joe is a great instructor. I shared five lessons with my sister over the course of a week and I can confidently say that we've both improved as snowboarders. Joe is a caring teacher; he genuinely cares about your improvement and he makes sure that you have a fun time learning. Joe is also very good with identifying points of potential improvement as well as explaining the more complicated concepts of park riding. Overall, I had a blast and I couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

We had a private snowboard lesson with Joe and he was very friendly, patient, and professional! It was our first time snowboarding and Joe made sure we were comfortable but also knew exactly how to push us to get out of our comfort zones. We felt confident has he encouraged us every step of the way and highly recommend him as your snowboarding instructor!

I think I made some thing wrong in the last review. Joe is a very nice teacher, he can point out my mistake clearly and tell me how to make it better. I got a lot of fun with Joe and also a great improve of my snowbording skills.

I had a one day private lesson with Joe on 1st Jan. He is amazingly patient, encouraging and extremely helpful. As a beginner who lacks confidence, his cheerfulness and patience definitely made learning much less stressful. He paced the lesson well and I was not only able to do S turns but even progressed to do one red run by the end of the day! I was so impressed with him that I requested for him to take our kids too! Awesome instructor!!
