As you can tell I'm a busy person! Through this blog I intend to bring you all things FATBOB, through my snowboarding thoughts, videos, cycling and fundraising. I hope you enjoy what you find and come back for more updates.

Never Summer Test Week

Just back from a cracking week with The Rider Social where we were blessed with awesome snow conditions. I managed to ride powder for 6 days straight and put the 2013 Never Summer Premier F1 and Proto CTX firmly to the test. Here's a little video from Wednesday 25th January:

It's been a while

It's been a considerable while since I've posted on the site. Well firstly, a large group of us went to Champery in January and whilst conditions were poor, we had great fun and produced this music video...

On my last trip to Champery, I was lucky enough to take a couple of 2012 Never Summer boards with me on my trip. You can read my review and watch my video reviews on GONEboarding

Finally, I'm in the process of planning the Love Snow camps for 2012 and have had some interesting contact. Once I know more you'll be able to find the info on Love Snow

Fully qualified in the UK

How many British Snowboarders can say they're legally qualified to teach on the mountain having done all their qualifications on 'home soil'? Well I know of 9, me being one of them. If you'd read the notes on me, you'd have noted that I qualified as an instructor with an ASBI qualification back in May 2006 at Milton Keynes Xscape under Snowsports Scotland. I converted to the BASI system back at Tamworth Snowdome in November 2007 and I've just returned from 2 weeks in Aviemore where I have successfully passed my BASI Level 2.

The first two levels were achieved under the guidance of Ash Newnes of Snowboardcoach fame. My BASI Level 2 was achieved with the aid of Mark Bishop who runs Pro Snowboarding in Val d'Isere. I would like to thank both for their help and guidance in achieving my qualifications. They are both excellent trainers with vast amounts of knowledge.

My wife Claire has been a rock over the last 2 weeks. She not only pushed me to do the course, but came up to Aviemore with me and looked after our children whilst I was doing he course. She didn't see much of me, but her support was very much appreciated and I did come home to smiley faces (well sort of) after a hard day of riding and lectures.

It's now back to work at both PF and the Snowdome. I have plenty of things to think about as I ponder my snowboarding career.
