With distinguished careers as a ski bum and a MTB racer, in 1999 Clint made the choice to create Allsport after an awesome MTB in the Redwoods in Rotorua. The philosophy behind Allsport was to supply quality outdoor products and equipment that would enhance the users experience and their performance. Allsport started with Marmot and has grown since then to include a number of top brands - the philosophy however remains the same.
I started working for Allsports in February 2008 after a long break from paid employment, raising my three children Marika 13, Crosby 10 and Kyla 8. I work part time and this allows me to maintain my property investments and family life. Leisure time is taken up with bush walking, mountain biking and a touch of skiing, albeit badly. One day I want to walk the Inca Trail. The staff at Allsports are inspirational and I relish coming to work every day, and I have a stunning view from my desk!
I have always been into the outdoors and enjoy a range of activities from MTB to snowboarding, road cycling, yoga and have recently been dabbling in a bit of crafting. Taupo offers a great lifestyle and a chance to enjoy the outdoors right at out doorstep. There's nothing like leaving work on a hot summer's day and being at the lake 5 minutes later.
It's a treat to be involved with so many quality brands and great products!
South Island Accounts Manager
I’m your friendly South Island Accounts Manager. Originally from New Mexico, I’ve been based in the Southern Lakes for since 2003.
I’m an avid mountain biker, hiker, shredder of the gnar, i.e. snowboarder and gardener.
A combination of top end product, fantastic retailers and a great team make working for Allsports Distribution a treat indeed.
I look forward to seeing you out there!
I grew up in Taupo and have recently moved back after many years away.
I spent 3 winters in Chamonix, France, which were incredibly fun and challenging in many ways, followed by a 1 ½ year stint in the UK before returning to NZ in 2009. I carried on the ski bum lifestyle back at Ruapehu for a few winters before starting with Allsports in May 2011.
I adore working surrounded by such quality gear and an awesome crew of talented people, and rediscovering everything Taupo has to offer. I love the outdoors, swimming in the lake, travelling, and hope to get stuck into some ski touring and mountain biking soon!
After 3 years of trying to get out of Auckland my husband, daughter and I finally made the move this year to Taupo and I love it!!!!
It’s great to get out in the fresh air and get away from the hustle & bustle of the city life. My main sporting interests over the years were netball, touch rugby, and the odd half marathon.
I am looking forward to giving the Taupo Half Marathon a go for the first time this year then who knows what’s next…….
I originally joined the Allsports crew in 2008, returning in March 2011 after a year away.
During this time I travelled around Europe, studied at St Martins College of Art and Design in London, and lived in Scotland for a while. After my OE I couldn’t resist returning to the cruisey lifestyle that Taupo has to offer, and the awesome Allsports team!
Outside of work I’m an artist/neo-craftster with a penchant for painting, sewing, and baking cupcakes. I have recently taken up a new extreme sport - knitting! - with fellow team members Sue and Jo.
Sales Manager - NZ & Aus
Since moving to Taupo from Sydney with my wife and two kids, I have found a nice balance between family, work and play.
What more could I ask for with awesome mountain biking all year round and great skiing so close to home.
As a passionate backcountry skier and climber now I spend more time introducing our kids to everything the outdoors has to offer.
Its great to be part of the Allsports team!
Dan Te Huia
I've worked for Allsports for the past 7 years.
I am a keen outdoors man, which is why I chose this industry to work in. We sell fantastic products for all forms of outdoor activities and most importantly we get to use them! Which for me'..is damn fine.
I've travelled to many parts of the world and have enjoyed many experiences, and I still find myself grounded by the beautiful country in which we live.
I live in Taupo with my partner Amy and our three little girls, Emma, Annabelle and Sophie. Taupo is in the heart of the North Island with so much to do here, so why not do it with the biggest toy box around in Allsports.
North Island Sales Representative
I escaped quakey Christchurch to begin my career at Allsports. With a background of ski patrol at Mt Ruapehu and white water rafting throughout New Zealand and as far away as Honduras, my role at Allsports provides me with the best work/play balance in life.
I’m an avid skier, snowboarder, surfer, kayaker, raft guide and have just begun mountain biking, which I'm thoroughly enjoying. This new life, with my beautiful partner and son, is just perfect.
I’m loving the Marmot Hyper Jacket at the moment. I chose it as my ski shell this winter and I'm loving the free stretchy movement and how well it breathes compared to a classic hard shell. I have also started using it mountain biking, it’s the perfect lightweight shell to pull out when you really need it.
Australian Sales Manager
G’day, I am the first employee for Allsports in Australia! I have worked in the outdoor wholesale industry for over 6 years but I have played in the outdoors all my life. I love everything about the outdoors and the lifestyle it brings. I am extremely fortunate to work for Allsports and the great team of people around me and I am extremely proud to represent some great brands (Marmot & Ahnu in Aus).
I live in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney with my wife Kate and we have a beautiful little girl Danika.
I’m liking the Ahnu Quinn boots at the moment. They're my first pair of Ahnu footwear and they are a cool looking pair of shoes. They have that rugged yet classy and extremely comfortable feel about them.
