A NOTE FROM RENELLE
Gidday, I'm Renelle, a Aussie snowboarder, surfer, speaker, mentor, health freak & biomechanics geek. Mostly known as a BASI ISTD Lv4 Snowboard Instructor Trainer, a national level coach awarded by the British Association to examine Snowboard Instructors & Adaptive Snowboard Instructors. The only female member on the team since 2006.
At heart, I'm a deep thinker and a big fan of mother earth. My family call me the 'voice of reason'. I have a logical brain that loves a challenge, a soft heart that never gives up, a wild spirit that loves to shine, and a soul that always wants to play.
I'm empathic and I love to use this superpower to educate, lead and inspire others to elevate beyond expectations to break through their barriers.
Facing challenges, problem solving and overcoming limitations that others refuse is in my blood, it comes natural to me and makes me feel alive. I’m the one who patiently stands by - always educating - never giving up when others might when it gets too hard.
My purpose is to bring out the best in you; physically & mentally on the mountain, and emotionally as a human. I love to make you aware of just how amazing you truly are, on or off snow, and I've discovered the mountain is the ideal playground to illuminate the circumstances to learn these life skills.
23 YEARS TEACHING EXPERIENCE
Born and bred on the beautiful beaches of Australia's Sunshine Coast, Renelle has an incredible connection with mother nature, formed at a very young age. This special love and bond originated on the Australian beaches and wild bushland. Her affinity for mountains & snow began on a one week holiday to the French Alps many years ago. Since then Renelle has worked all around the world teaching snowboarders of all levels – this includes snowboarding over 24 full winter seasons and 15 years of training and examining instructors for the British Association. Not only is Renelle a super technical snowboard geek, she has the uncanny ability to teach this special connection to our earth with depth, vitality and integrity in a way that her students never forget.

BEYOND THE MOUNTAINS
When the snow melts, Renelle usually migrates to the west coast of France to indulge in her second passion, surfing. Born and bred on the beautiful beaches of Australia's Sunshine Coast, the ocean is in her veins and travel to incredible surfing destinations is always on the agenda. Skating to the beach, climbing, and downhill mountain biking are also high up there. Come and play!
