Hi guys
I am a keen Snowboarder, been riding freestyle for the past 4 years, competing at national university level. What opportunities are available for boarding while serving?

Sara, the RN Ski champs take place in a weeks time in Les Menuires, France. There is obviously boarding aswell, this is where new blood is found - You!! I tink if you searched for RNSki you would be able to get some contacts

Awesome, gives me an reason to dig in and keep hitting the dry every week.
Another question- If i enjoy a sport which is not popular AT ALL is there a chance i can introduce this (or at least suggest)

The last time I was out at the RNSki, it was becoming V popular, and if memory serves me correctly they do have dry slope champs in the UK, I think later in the year ???
