    Tamworth Snowboard Expert Pat has been standing sideways for over 15 years. With seasons spent in Banff and Queenstown, a qualified instructor and freestyle instructor, he's not short of experience.

    Awarded the best new instructor trophy at Remarkables, he now rides at Tamworth Snowdome regularly and finds chance to find longer slopes at least twice a year. Missing a left arm means he's always been creative with his riding - he might just be the creator of the Elbow Tail Grab.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Lake Louise, Canada. "My favourite resort is Lake Louise, Banff Canada. It has an amazing park, long wide pistes and great off piste. The views are amazing too! I want to get out to the USA as I’ve never ridden there before, and I’m also looking forward to going to the TSA Board Test in Austria!"
