    Whistler coaches?

    I've always SUCKED at jumping. Any coaches in particular that are good at teaching how to clear tables/doubles? Thanks, Fahn

    If you can do it, go to Summer Gravity Camp. It's a great time and 30hrs of incredible coaching.

    I wanted to. Especially since the dollar is up so much. But the guys I'm going with scheduled the trip in the beginning of July.

    Skip their trip...do SGC instead. Its an awesome time and you will progress more in that one week than you have all season.

    Contact Lorraine Blancher. (Lbbikes.com)

    She's so much fun to ride with. Full of stoke and smiles! You will learn more with her in the day/week you spend with her than you could imagine.
    I met her at SGC and preferred riding with her over any other coach. She's got a great vibe, keeps it fun, and will accommodate your needs, based on your specific riding goals.

    I really can't say enough about how great she is. You won't be let down.

    I rode with her in '11 when I did the Richie Schley camp for the weekend. It was good, but not enough specifics about jumping. I think I was with her for 2-3 hrs maybe.

    I would have to say I've ridden with her for probably 5 full days in whistler. She can accommodate your needs for coaching. Look her up online, she crushes it on a bike, and can coach too.

    You ever been to Whistler ??? It is easy to start jumping there....start on B-Line then go over to Crank it Up.....you will have flow and it will be easy.....also you can get a coach for a day at Whistler.

    Better....build some jumps (safe and small) locally and work with local riders getting you to step it up
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    Simon Lawton: Fluidride video series and coach. He does private lessons at Whistler!

    I know Simon personally. Great guy and awesome coach. Advanced skills like jumping are his thing. He's produced 2 very successful videos, conducts coaching clinics in WA state, Whistler, France, and S. America!

    I did a full day with Paul Howard of Zep my last trip up there specifically to work on jumping. My buddy and I made huge advancements in a single day thanks to changes he made in our form.
