Born and bred on the beautiful beaches of Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Her affinity for the European mountains began on a one-week holiday to the French Alps. Having attained the highest level Snowboard Instructor qualifications (BASI Level 4 ISTD); and completing 20 full winter seasons playing on her snowboard.
Renelle is now one of the worlds leading coaches delivering elite level, distinctly exceptional instruction. Riding since ’94, Renelle is now the leading female Snowboard Instructor in the British BASI system being the only women ever invited to examine future snowboard Instructors as a BASI Trainer, and the only women in Europe coaching at this elite level. With 18 years coaching experience, which started in Andorra in ’98, honing her coaching skills alongside many other BASI Snowboard Trainers in Andorra for 7 years. Moving to Tignes, France in 2006 she co-founded Alliance Snowboarding and subsequently co-developed the company for a further 7 years.
When the snow melts, Renelle usually migrates to the west coast of France near Hossegor, to indulge in her second passion, surfing one of the world’s ultimate beach breaks. Having been raised on the beach, the ocean is in her veins and travel to incredible surfing destinations is always on the agenda.
With her huge love for mother nature, mid-summer escapades involve mountain biking, climbing and hiking.

our beliefs …
Our goal is to pass on the pleasure of snowboarding to everyone, of any age or ability.
Our chosen coaching system is BASI (British Association of Snowsports Instructors), an internationally recognized qualification pathway of pure quality and excellence. BASI Snowboard system is the most highly recognized within the industry worldwide.
We believe all coaching should encourage & guide individuals to eventually self teach. We believe snowboarding is SO MUCH MORE than just a sport, it’s a journey, which starts as an infectious bug and becomes an integral part of “who you are”.
We see our coaching as an opportunity to pass on our knowledge & passion, supporting people to acquire new skills, gain confidence, lift consciousness, release fears, clear limiting beliefs, and change peoples’ identity with themselves which then resonates through their every day lives.
Although there is complexity behind our coaching, our innovative methods are SIMPLE TO DIGEST and PROFOUNDLY EFFECTIVE.
our holistic approach…
We look at YOUR snowboarding performance as a whole; the body, mind, board, mountain with unrivalled programs & courses including pre-holiday off snow preparation to support your on-snow sessions in resort. You will experience long term, lasting changes, not just quick fixes by teaching you how to teach yourself. You’ll receive solutions and support in technical, psychological, equipment and physical components of your snowboarding with inspiriting compassion.
We call it conscious coaching…..
