Clint “Clipper” Kimmins is one of our very own ‘Go Body’ athletes and has been since 2012.
Here’s a little bit about this living legend:
Kicking things off as a surfing professional at 16 years of age, finishing in the top 5 at the under-16 Junior World Champion with the Australian junior circuit. Clint Kimmins was destined for great things!
He then switched things up a bit and went from just surfing to becoming a Long Course Triathlete and big wave Surfer with the World’s Big Wave Surfing Tour. Having already surfed some of the biggest known waves on Earth – WA, Jaws, and Mavericks. Meanwhile, scoring some magazine covers along the way.
Being on the road travelling with the tour, taught Clint a lot about work ethic. Which is something that would come handy down the track.
The 2000’s were some of Clint’s best memories. Hanging with some of the best in Hawaii – Darren O’Rafferty, Zane Harrison, Mick Fanning and Jamie O’Brien. These guys were his family.
Being a very determined kid, Clint wanted nothing more than to be a professional surfer. “It felt like I was meant to be there. I’m not finished with it yet.”
Fast forward to 2022:
Clint’s one of the famous Bondi Life Guards and still loving his triathlons.
