About Snowboard Addiction

Snowboard Addiction is a small snowboarder-owned-and-run company, based in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. We started back in 2007 with a few PDF manuals and some low-fi videos. Our content and quality rapidly expanded from there. Snowboard Addiction is now the world leader in snowboard tutorials and training equipment. 

Nev Lapwood, our Director and Owner, started snowboarding in '93 at the age of 10. After finishing high school in New Zealand (you’ll hear the accent on our videos), he travelled to Whistler to shred, and never really left.

Nev used coaching and instructing to generate enough income to support his addiction and quickly became involved in many high-level coaching positions, including:

  • Examining park instructors for the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI)
  • Training the Snowboard instructors at Whistler Blackcomb Snowboard School
  • Coaching for many of the leading snowboard camps, including: The Canadian Sports & Business Academy, The Camp Of Champions, Whistler Summer Snowboard Camps & Pro-ride.

From coaching overload came the idea to help thousands of people around the world with an online coaching program. During the summer of 2007, Snowboard Addiction was born!

Snowboard Addiction Mission:

“To provide the world's best snowboard tutorial videos and snowboard training products.”

The above sentence is written in permanent marker on the wall of our office. That is what we do at Snowboard Addiction, and will continue to do for years to come.

We would love to give all our content away for free, however the videos are expensive to produce so we choose to fund our business with the sales of our tutorials.

"If you are already a customer, I sincerely thank you for your support. You enable us to do what we do and I am most appreciative." Nev Lapwood
