What past Riders   have to say.... 

I've been riding for many years, even doing some advanced stuff, but the coaches showed me how to do things that I was never able to do (or at least, do well, or fast!). The afternoon spent sessioning & riding the trails with Charlotte proved just how awesome the skill learning was! Cleared some gnarly stuff with focus and confidence, and felt amazing with my progress!

Paul

I’ve done a couple of the 1-day sessions with Minii before, and they were great for learning some of the fundamentals. However, School of Shred took my riding to the next level in so many ways! Even before the six weeks had ended, I was already riding faster, with more control, and feeling more confident in the areas that had always slowed me down. I’m now able to carry my speed through corners, flow over larger features, and float over the smaller ones. My overall riding improved so much that my friends who hadn’t ridden with me recently were shocked at the progress I had made… and my newfound speed!

We can't wait to ride with you!
