“Allian turn 20” continued
It all started in 1999 when Ingemar Backman resigned Atlantis as they planned to move the production to China. Ingemar has been invited to the Air and Style in Insbruck and needed a snowboard. The original three members of Allian visited a factory in Austria, and his first Allian board was promised for the December debut at the contest. In May of 2000, eight original team riders were at Lake Tahoe for the first team photo and promotion video shooting.
