I grew up surfing and skateboarding along the East Coast of South Africa, but always wanted to learn to snowboard and ski.
I finally learnt to snowboard at a ski resort up in the Lesotho mountains (South Africa) and quickly became passionate about it.
Having always loved teaching, I had already decided back then, that I wanted to train and eventually qualify as an instructor for both skiing and snowboarding.
This passion soon led me to spend five Winters (plus some off season snowboarding!) in Switzerland.
