What The Pros Are Rockin’
Name: Chad Otterstrom
Height: 5′ 8″
Weight: 158 pounds
Home: Breckenridge, Colorado
Roots: Shoreview, Minnesota
Sponsors: Forum, Foursquare, ThirtyTwo, Smith, Etnies, Bluebird Wax, Alycium, Active Ride Shop, DEFCON, Breckenridge
Stance: Goofy, between 21 and 22 inches wide, with 18 to 24 degrees of angle on the front foot and negative-three to negative-nine degrees on the back. I ride a little back from center, maybe one inch.
Board: Forum Destroyer 157 ’cause it works for everything. If there’s powder, I’ll ride a 160 cm.
Boots: ThirtyTwo Prions. I like stiff boots—they last longer.
Bindings: Forum All Terrain Xybrid ’cause they’re good for riding the pipe.
Riding style: I have no real distinct style—every time I do a trick it feels different. I like to ride it all—pipe, jumps, and jibs.
Quote: “For the ladies.”
