Level 3 AASI Instructor Bio

blakesnowboard-794x10241-794x1024My name is Blake Tholen Clark. I’m an AASI fully certified Level 3 snowboard instructor with a Freestyle Accreditation. (Level 3 is the highest certification available kind of like a masters degree in snowboard instructing.) I also earned my ACE 2—Advanced Children’s Educator, which I highlight in our L1 RAW course, using my son to demo for our kids video lesson… I started him off at 2.5 years and by 4 he was riding blues!

Currently, I teach in Park City, Utah. I have 17 years experience teaching and coaching at resorts across the U.S. and abroad in Australia. Early in my career I was a sponsored competitor earning several silver medals at USASA nationals while competing in five events: half-pipe, slope style, slalom, giant slalom and boarder X.

In addition to riding and coaching, I also love film! I work full-time as a producer in corporate TV. I merged my two passions for snowboarding and videography with Flowing Freeride video courses. I realized my clients excel when we film their sessions and watch while I give feedback and break down their movements. Movement analysis is used in a lot of sports and is an amazing tool to speed up your progression. I also know most self-taught riders actively watch online clips to learn. That’s how we came up with our VIRTUAL PRO Online Movement Analysis Service. It’s also why I know there is a real need for professional snowboard series online that not only teaches flashy tricks, but all of the proper techniques that lead up to extreme riding.

My video courses are 100% guaranteed to help you progress safely in snowboarding. If you’re not happy cancel and write me for a refund. I look forward to being your snowboard coach!
