What The Pros Are Rockin’
Name: Keir Dillon
Weight: 122 pounds
Home: My Burton Wheelie and Double Decker bag and Gravis backpack.
Roots: East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania-“East Coast represent.”
Sponsors: Burton, Sobe, Dillon Design, Electric, Gravis, Boost Mobile.
Stance: Regular, 21.75 inches wide and set back about one-and-a-half inches, which allows me to edge harder. Eighteen-degrees angle on my front binding and negative-three on the back.
Board: I ride the Burton Code 159 for almost everything. Sometimes I’ll ride the Custom 162 for deep pow-but we all know how much I get to ride that.
Consumption: I would only need about one or two, but I go through about five because of testing and things like that.
Lube: I wax my board every other day that I shred, unless I’m in the backcountry.
Boots: Burton Ion, size nine. I need a boot that won’t break my ankles, but I still have to be able to tweak and move around. The support of a boot is more important than whether it’s stiff or soft.
Bindings: Burton C14 with Skybacks-they allow you to have
good forward lean without tons of angle on your highbacks.
Music: I rock a mini-disc and big headphones.
Superstitions: I never say that something is easy, always simple or some other word-I’ve been doing it for about seven years.
Riding style: I just try to be smooth and go big: if you’re not into it, that’s cool.
