Alex Chen

Aussie freestyle snowboarder

#3 Halfpipe AUS – 90 world
#3 Big Air AUS – 86 world
#4 Slopestyle AUS – 122 world

“I love the creatively and freedom snowboarding brings, especially freestyle snowboarding where every run can be a different combination of tricks.”

When Alex isn’t supporting Australia in the Youth Olympics or travelling to Colorado or Austria to train over the Aussie down season, you will catch her studying at her University in Sydney, Australia and hanging out with friends with an Iced soy latte in hand.

A self-described relaxed, playful and graceful rider, Alex’s favourite trick is a front 3 and learnt to ski when she was just 2 years old at Thredbo! She later switched to snowboarding when she was 9 after begging her parents.

One of her favourite places her sport has taken her is Absolut Park in Austria; “It is one of the coolest mountains with the best parks I’ve ridden!” (We definitely have to agree with her on that one).

When asked what causes Alex supports, she replied: “Personally, I support stopping the Asian hate crimes which are extremely prevalent in America right now. Being Asian myself, it is extremely hurtful to see the increase in hate and violence towards Asians, furthermore, it is scary to think that any of these Asians receiving violence could be a relative or family member of mine. I am also very proud to be a part of ROJO’s ongoing support for B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer) and will continue to support this cause!”
