EXPERT TRAINING BACKED BY SCIENCE TO ENHANCE YOUR SNOW & SKI PERFORMANCE AND BREAK THROUGH TECHNICAL LIMITATIONS

Develop your coordination, turns, landings and improve your mobility through FPT snowboard training. Due to the amount of rotation through the torso and strain on the lower limbs, training will not only provide you with the expertise to aid in your boarding/skiing development but also strengthen, develop power and build robustness in preventing injury.

Luca Menzi Smith

I am an avid boardsports enthusiast both on the snow and water. I have been kiteboarding and surfing for over 15 years and snowboarding and skiing since before I could walk. 

In my high school years I trained with a high performance freestyle snowboard programme and competed at events across New Zealand.

Recently I have spent two seasons in Switzerland coaching and instructing snowboarding from all ability levels while focussing on youth freestyle development. 

I also currently work with a youth snowsports development programme which focuses on preparing and enhancing the abilities of NZ’s future snowsports athletes.

I am currently studying Coaching at AUT and have a strong passion for sharing my knowledge with others by passing on skills and techniques to those who want to improve their skills and become more confident on the snow.

Credentials:

  • Level One SBINZ Snowboard Instructor.
  • Undergraduate in Sport and Recreation, majoring in coaching.
