Name: Shaun White
Sponsors: Burton Snowboards, Volcom Clothing, Oakley Optics, Adio Shoes, Birdhouse Skateboards, Mountain Dew, Target, PlayStation 2, T-Mobile
Years snowboarding: 10
Home: Carlsbad, California
Weight: 140 pounds
Stance: Regular, 22 inches wide-I rock the biggest stance option on my board-with nine degrees angle on the front foot and negative-three on the back.
Forward lean: Ha! None, and I love it.
Board: I ride my own pro model. There are two sizes, but I only ride the 156 ($500)-just one board for everything.
Boots: I rock my own pro-model boots in size eight ($240). There are two colorways, but I like the brown ones more.
Bindings: I use the Burton Custom bindings ($140)-they have the perfect amount of flex. I’m all about comfort.
Personal settings: I definitely use custom footbeds in my boots. They make such a difference. I also switch out the toe straps on my white Custom bindings to make them totally white.
Tuning techniques: I normally travel with three boards-one tuned for pipe with sharp edges and waxed up, and two for park and jibbing. They’re tuned down but still waxed up. It’s all about speed.
Riding style: I would say my riding style is neoclassical meets postmodern-impressionistic freestyle.
