I’ll share my ‘eagle eye rider analysis’ formulas and strategy that I use to match the riders performance to the BASI Level 2 PIA’s (Performance Indicator Analysis).

What people say?

Renelle is probably one of the most amazing instructors I have every met! She is passionate, driven and joyful all in one. She has made me feel confident not only as an adaptive instructor (second discipline) but as a rider overall. The techniques and methods she uses will be stuck in my mind for as long as I teach. She is the main reason why I am switching back over to BASI to be the best Instructor I can be.
Max Alcock
Basi level 3 aspirant
I took a BASI course with Renelle in 2018 and found her teaching style and character to be utterly inspiring. I was was lucky enough to train with her in 2019 for Level 3 prep. Her passion for teaching is so unique and her ability to sense out and refine movements within my snowboarding is incredible. She has a truly special eye for snowboarding and delivers her lesson with constructive feedback, non stop fun and elevated energy.

Want personal performance coaching?


I believe coaching should ooze passion, be inspiring, emanate professionalism and empower each student to teach themselves.  I go the extra mile, providing clear, detailed, accurate information and I’m never afraid to be totally honest.  I do whatever it takes to hold a space for you to break through.  I sincerely want you to succeed, not only in your riding & teaching but in your business and everyday life too. Deep to my core I’m dedicated to uphold the quality of our profession and elevate it beyond where it’s ever been before.  My passions are riding & snowboard teaching, human behaviour, health and biomechanics.  I want to share my knowledge, expertise & wisdom to pass on everything snowboarding has taught me, not only on the mountain but off hill too.  Let me help you ‘win at life’ and/or become an Elite Snowboard Coach.
