Who Are We?

James Sweet

Yo! I am from the sleepy town of Bude in Cornwall. A surfer, skater and snowboard shredder, I’m all about having as much fun as possible, and helping pass the stoke on to others. Having spent 10 winters living in Chamonix, I now live in Tignes, making the most of the natural playground around me and chilling in the park during the downtime between snow dumps.

I really like to coach snowboarding with a simple, relaxed but focused approach. I have helped people go from doing their first powder turn to getting podium results and sponsorship offers. I love to coach all people and all levels, I find it so fun getting in tune with someones learning and helping to fast-forward their progression.

As well as working at snowboard schools, I have also worked with the Royal Navy snowboard team, helping them to bring home gold medals at their inter service events, three years back to back! I also help out on various snowcamps, such as the Animal Snowcamp and have helped many younger riders break into the scene.

Super stoked to be supported by Dragon Alliance and Airculture Skateshop.

“Im so stoked on SuperRad, come and get shred happy !”

Since I strapped a snowboard on my feet I haven’t been able to take it off for very long. I originally started at a local dryslope 15 minutes from my house. Nowadays, I tend to spend most of my time in the mountains and am currently living in the Alps, generally just having fun. I work as a snowboard instructor/ coach though-out the year and have alot of knowledge and experience in coaching and progressing all different levels of rider from first time strapping in, to long days in the park, shred carving and taking it to the backcountry. I have spent years working in the snowboard industry as both an instructor/coach and as a rider on the freestyle scene, constantly trying to build on my own knowledge and riding. To me there is no better feeling than strapping in, riding with some good friends and learning a thing or two along the way.

In my down time, you will usually see me messing around on some sort of board, skating or longboarding around town, filming something to make a new video with, and just having a good time with good people. I am real lucky to have help and support from Dragon AllianceFor Boarders By Boarders Colour Wear and Signal Snowboards. Let’s get shred happy!
