Livin’ Bend Clotheslines, LLC is proud and excited to sponsor Professional Snowboarder Kent Callister. Kent started competing for the Australian National Team in 2011, when he was just 15 years old. Kent is a native of San Diego, California, but moved to his Dad’s homeland in Australia when he was five years old. The Callister family spent six years in Australia then made a move back to the states, and settled in Bend, Oregon, for a number of years, where Kent shifted his passion from skateboards to snowboards.
Callister trained with Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation (MBSEF) through his teen years, during which time he realized his love of snowboarding and competing, and soon became a top contender in the halfpipe. Shortly thereafter, Callister was offered a spot on the Australian team, as he has dual citizenship. Although Kent lives in Bend during the off season, he spends months training in New Zealand, Colorado, and Mammoth, California. He is currently sponsored by Mt. Bachelor, Union Bindings, and rides NITRO snowboards.
Kent is truly a high Flying Fox (Australian animal) and was Born to Board! TM
