After disappointing last year, looking for recommended Snowboard instructor in ValThorens

In the past I did regular Ski, but after an accident leaving me with a partially torn ACL, I didn't ski for ~20 years.
Last year returned to the slopes, obviously older Smile not as fit and flexible.
Got myself a local snowboard trainer, but after a week, finished with a general feeling of disappointment.
Clearly it is me, who is slow learner, not as easy as before on taking risks and handling the speeds....
Still I am looking for anyone who can recommend an experienced snowboard guide - In Val-Thorens (where my family will be staying)
I've not got a huge amount of experience from VT but have skied the L3V a lot so can make some suggestions.
I've had great experiences with New Gen ski schools (admittedly in Vallandry rather than VT) for both off piste guiding and on piste lessons. They have a base in VT so it might be worth investigating them.
I have also had great lessons from Parallel Lines ski and snowboard school in Meribel. I should say my wife and I are good friends with one of the Directors but other friends of ours have also used them with great results. You're unlikely to be able to join a group lesson with Parallel lines as they'll meet at La Chaudanne (Meribel centre) but they could certainly meet you closer to home for private lessons.
Whatever you decide have fun in VT, the variety and expanse of terrain in L3V makes it one of my all time favourite places to ski.....in fact I'll be there in 19 days!!!
