Chuck Allen

Chuck Allen & Louie Vito

Words: Pat Bridges

Snowboarding lost one of its most genuine souls yesterday with the passing of USASA founder Chuck Allen. For nearly a quarter of a century Chuck selflessly dedicated most of his time and energy to promoting the growth of both amateur snowboarding competitions and the sport as a whole. In terms of people who have directly influenced multiple generations of shreds Chuck is unmatched and will forever be missed.
