Chet here is STOKED. He got himself hooked up with a gnu park pickle with Custom binders in acid green. On top of that he got some fresh 32 boots, a bern baker helmet, and some Oakley goggles. Damn this set up is ridiculous. Look for Chet on the hill. He will be the one with a huge smile on his face because his set up is so amazing. Thanks for coming in.

What do Burton Custom Binders in acid green match? Ask Kevin. He put them on this ride Ruckus in a 145 and the set up looks sick. Add a pair of 32 boots and a Bern baker helmet, and you have one SICK set up. Enjoy the ride Kevin.
