    Another absolutely fantastic snowboarding camp!
    Had an absolute blast at the Real snowboarding camp. The Real snowboarding coaches and team are fantastic. - technical, encouraging, positive, passionate about the sports and nurturing a great environment for learning. Everything was also well organised. This is my second camp with RS and I’m already looking forward to going back! Can’t recommend enough!

    Best holiday to date !
    Absolutely brilliant, beyond what I expected. Going out on my own to learn to board having no idea what to expect the week with the REAL Snowboarding lads as well as the other campers has completely topped all of my holiday experiences. To go as a complete beginner and see so many experienced boarders returning to these camps set me at ease and really got me excited from the get go. I had the pleasure of working with Tom who was brilliant throughout the whole week. Teaching us in a fun and engaging way and also being very down to earth and real with us all really showed through his passion for both snowboarding and teaching. He handled us brilliantly and even the mornings when we were tired and less interested within an hour with him we were all gee’d up and ready to go. Can’t recommend this experience enough, I will for sure be back again next December

    First time boarders !
    Hi I just wanted to say thank you ! My wifey and I booked a board lesson last week in Les gets. I was a bit sceptical to start as booking online. I shouldn’t have been as Katie answered every question in fine detail. Please thank Nick he was there as arranged! Went through and explained everything to us. He gave great advice and had us boarding in no time. (Even with a mistakes) Nick kept his cool, with a couple of newbie’s! Thank you so much. Regards Cass and Steve

    Excellent and constructive tuition
    We used Real Snowboarding in Morzine for four days as group lessons for Snowboarding discovery lessons. They were a great team, very communicative, really helpful and the support and tuition provided was excellent. Those who participated could snowboard and blues by the end of the week. That was very encouraging. Will definitely use again.

    Recommended School
    It was easy to get information about lessons and availability, I booked and paid online too. We had a private lesson with Nick in Morzine, met promptly at the top of Pleney and he assessed us on the nursery slope then off we went! Mixed abilities, Nick focused on the beginner and was very patient. He showed us good pistes and easier chair lifts, gave us both good tips. Thanks Nick, hope to see you next time!

    Excellent admin communicators and a fantastic instructor
    I couldn’t recommend Real highly enough. The comms from Katie from the beginning were excellent. Initially they weren’t sure if they had availability for a 3 hour 1 on 1 lesson but she explained they were hoping an instructor was flying out. Katie ended up confirming for me on Christmas Eve which was above and beyond. Leeds Lad Tom gave me my lesson and what a lovely, patient, encouraging and knowledgeable guy he is. He’d been very ill a couple of days before and was trying to shift it but he battled on with the lesson refusing to rest. He was extremely clear in his instructions giving me a variety of examples and explanations of what I needed to do and why which all made sense. I hadn’t boarded for 8 years so he took me back to basics, even making sure I could safely get off a chair lift before we used them which I was grateful for. With his guidance and confidence in me I ended the lesson switching my turns which was great fun. My husband saw me at the end and wanted to book in too. I am so grateful to Tom for giving me the confidence so quickly to enjoy boarding and if we return to Morzine I will definitely book him again. Don’t hesitate to book with Real!

    Absolutely brilliant snowboarding classes!
    Absolutely brilliant snowboarding classes! Nick was fantastic at building everyone's confidence, while giving straightforward instructions and fun exercises to help us work on our technique. The groups were small enough for the instructor to help us individually, but big enough to have fun together. There were lots of laughs and the 2 hours each day flew by. Would definitely come back for improvers lessons next year.

    REAL snowboarding with instructor Tom
    Our 13-year old son had a week of snowboarding with REAL Snowboarding in Morzine, France. Their snowbard instructor Tom was very enthusiastic and was able to motivate the whole group very well. Our sons snowboarding level after one week was unreal and the way Tom motivated him very morning with a sound plan and great energy was fantastic to see. Big thanks to Tom and the team of REAL Snowboarding!

    Great company to deal with and great teacher.
    Can't recommend these guys enough. Nick was the kids teacher and he had the patience of a Saint with the group of 8-23 year olds, all absolute beginners. By the end of the week they were all getting down the slopes on their boards. Booking was simple and they returned emails quickly. Would definitely use again.

    Fab time snowboarding
    Had a lesson with nick this afternoon after being told how good these guys were back home. Absolutely superb, really interesting guy with a wealth of information and gave me plenty of tips to go away with and work on in preparation of maybe doing my level 2 in the future. If you are a snowboarder looking to improve I’d highly recommend these guys to make you better. Thanks and keep up the good work 🤙🏻

We booked three days of 3hrs one to one freestyle coaching with Real during March 2020. Despite being really busy they were flexible enough to fit in our late booking. The level of coaching, and snowboarding is very high and each session was fun, technical, and varied. We cannot recommend them enough and we will be using them again very soon.

I was traveling on a freestyle camp in mid October with the amazing Barry and his crew + a lot of Danes ready to take on austria. The Camp was well organized and the instructors was as friendly as they were competent. The instructors set up the days program after groups of niveau which was a very pleasant experience. Sadly I was so unfortunate to be riden down by a lose snowboarder on the pist, and had to be transported by a medical helicopter. Something that can happen on a pist anytime. One thing is to be said, so much love and praise for the lovely team at REAL Snowboarding for helping me get off the pist and afterwards home before the end of the Camp. There was never any doubt of what to do thanks to the team which was very professional and easy to get in contact with when going literals flight mode. All in all, should you be so unfortunate to have a bad experience on a snowboarding trip REAL Snowboarding knows how to get you to keep your cool and get you on your feet again. Thanks a lot!

I had an excellent lesson with Stefan. It really helped my technique and I was able to change some bad snowboarding habits, that developed over the years. Stefan listened to me when I explained what I wanted to get out of the lesson and worked with that. I highly recommend.

If you want to learn to snowboard, REAL is definitely the place to go. I had never touched a snowboard before but after 2 private lessons with Barry (legend) and with a bit of practice on my own, I was confidently riding the slopes after my 4th day of boarding. He was so patient and encouraging and my overall confidence in the snow has really improved. Definitely worth every penny! Thanks Barry!

Been on a couple of week-long trips and a couple of privates with the REAL Snowboarding instructors so far and I can say each time I’ve come away with way more than expected.

Dave & Barry have a nice laidback and effective approach to teaching and in a mixed ability group they tailor their coaching to each individual to help them progress beyond their current abilities.

Highly recommend getting lessons with these guys if you’re a beginner or even if your at a good level and wanting to learn some advanced stuff on a snowboard. 👌🏻✨

My teenage daughter has done several lessons and camps with Barry & Dave over recent years. It’s amazing to see how much she progresses every time. She always comes back buzzing and with a huge smile on her face. We would definitely recommend this snowboard school. 👍🏻
