Do you want to learn how to snowboard really really well? GREAT!
You've probably heard about this site and are ready to push your
riding to the next level. I'm sure you've seen a lot of trick tips and
articles out there that do very little to help your riding. As you
continue to read on you are about to learn a totally revolutionary
"learn to snowboard system."

We are Matt Belair and Neville Lapwood, two of Canada's top
professional freestyle coaches. Our chosen location is Whistler,
British Columbia Cananda, the snowboard mecca of the world and home to
some of the best pro's, coaches and parks on earth!
