In the last five years Clint has gone from pimply faced teenager with heaps of potential, to being one of Australia’s best freestyle riders with the ability to throw down more tricks in a snowboard park than any of his peers. Clint Allan
Growing up in Barrara, on the NSW south coast, Clint has always been a keen surfer and developed a competitive streak at an early age thanks to his two brothers, Jamie(one year older) and Mitch(one year younger).
Clint had the incredible fortune to be raised in a family that was ultra supportive and had a good sense of adventure. This sense of adventure led Bob and Margo Allan (Clint’s parents) to move the whole family down to Jindabyne for the winter of 1995. Being a keen surfer himself, Bob fell in love with snowboarding and needless to say the boys were instantly hooked. The Allan family has been making an annual winter pilgrimage to Jindabyne ever since.
2003 and 2004 were successful years for Clint with a host of good competition results including a win at the inaugural Style Wars, a rider judged 5 day event with all of Australia’s best riders involved and 3rd place at the Billabong Junior in France which saw Clint take on, and beat most of the best Juniors in the word. As well as having a good competitive year Clint has began to gain some industry respect on the international scene by being a consistent standout in the Mammoth mountain (California) snowboard park.
Most people agree that if Clint can keep his addiction to lollie’s and love for relaxing a little too much at bay, he will lead the charge in the Aussie freestyle scene for the foreseeable future.
