Do any other pro snowboard instructors/coaches work with FFR?

Flowing Freeride is a passion project co-founded by Blake Clark AASI Fully Certified Instructor and a small group of friends and family with complimentary professional backgrounds.

We will introduce these professionals and describe their contributions to our team in the near future.

Can FFR teach me to be a professional snowboarder?

Flowing Freeride is built for recreational riders. With that said, in L3 Ripper, we provide lessons in competing, sponsorship, and how to become a certified instructor, which will help those wanting to move into professional aspects of the sport.

Are there diff versions of your course for goofy and regular?

In our early lessons we discuss methods to find and test your power foot. From there our progressions are taught similar to on mountain lessons, you’ll be taught to understand how to use and adjust drills to your stance with an emphasis on building switch/fakie stance.

Are your courses downloadable?

A download option is coming soon. Currently our content is available to be streamed from any device. We’re integrating a smart delivery platform that will adjust optimization according to your connection in order to deliver your video content at amazing speed.

How are FFR courses different from other online snowboard tutorials?

Flowing Freeride courses are comprehensive, meaning we don’t only focus on isolated flashy tricks that attract attention. We offer three fully comprehensive courses, with content similar to what you’d experience if you were to take a snowboard course through the rec department at a university.

Each course is broken into sections exploring every aspect of snowboarding: equipment, terrain, safety, weather and a suite of drills. We also explore the different riding styles Freestyle, Freeride and Alpine, which means you can learn and blend techniques or specialize in your passion. Every lesson is based off of certified training defined by AASI and the career history of an instructor with 17 years of experience. Our lessons are built logically to help you progress in each new skill or trick. And each course is custom tailored to meet the needs of the complete beginner all the way to those progressing to extreme riding.

Is there a free trial of your subscriber courses?

We will soon. Once available we will promote details on how to qualify on our website. If you want to stay up to date on our a free trial you can join our email list (found in the footer of our site) or like us on Facebook.

Why would I pay for a snowboard course online… Ever heard of YouTube?

There are a lot of ways to learn snowboarding: self taught, learn from friends, pro lessons, or other online tips/videos/articles. Many people do learn how to ride this way and can develop a cool style. However, without professional instruction, many also experience unnecessary injuries from trial and error riding or pick up bad habits by mimicking other self-taught riders.

Undoubtably, one of the best ways to practice is by learning from a certified instructor who can help you grasp the core fundamentals of how to most effectively use your body and board. So if you can afford to pay hundreds a day to learn for private lessons, our course works great as a complimentary guide to your practice. If you can’t afford one-on-one lessons, you’ll still gain access to a fully certified instructor, all in re-playable video format.

What snowboard training do you offer for free?

We’ll offer plenty of free training content through our blog and YouTube channel. We’ll be releasing select sample videos from our courses and throughout the snowboard season we’ll be shooting/editing all kinds of tips and topics for free social release. If you want to stay up to date on our fresh free content you can join our email list (found in the footer of our site) or like us on Facebook.
