  • Bobby Chadderton

    I'm Bobby, a (fully stereotypical) Canadian living in Keystone CO, chasing smiles and stoke with friends!

    I've been working in the Snowboard Industry for 8 years since I graduated from Temple University and led their Snowboard Club. Today, I'm lucky to manage a team of 150 amazing Experts right here at Curated! I'm a snowboarder, writer, photographer, tattoo advocate, gear nerd and a self-proclaimed spreader-of-stoke.

    I grew up riding park on the east coast and have been fortunate to travel all over the U.S. riding and exploring the best terrain North America has to offer. I've had the opportunity to demo the majority of boards on today's market and will happily give you unbiased insight on whatever you're considering.

    I work and live in Keystone, Colorado. If you'll be riding any Ikon resort in Colorado, let's take some laps together!

    Down to business! What do I need from you?

    Keep it real! Please feel comfortable being completely honest with me about what you are looking for, I don't bite! Tell me your timeline, your budget, experience level, and anything else that can help us get you set up with the perfect gear. I'm a passionate snowboarder, not a salesperson! I spent a year sitting in a rubber tube from falling on my butt while learning how to snowboard about 16 years ago, Trust me when I say I'll never forget being a beginner! I'm still learning and progressing as a snowboarder and always will be!

    If you're working with me, this is a team effort! I know this market pretty well - I'll go above and beyond if it means you'll be stoked and smiling on the mountain! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put our conversation on hold if it's better for you!

    Connect with me on instagram @chowderin and keep me in the loop on your winter shred!

    John's experience with Bobby
    Bobby has been nothing less than absolutely amazing! I have several years of boarding under my belt but not necessarily the knowledge and he has taken everything I've given him and really helped me narrow down my search. Thanks man I will never use another place or person to help me shop!

    Bobby was great and asking questions and fine tuning my preferences to the board I needed. He fully elaborated on all his answers to my questions, was attentive to my delivery details, and ensured I was happy with the board once it arrived. His recommended products were all on sale to boot.

    Bobby is the BOMB. 10/10 recommend. 5 Stars.
    I cannot even begin to describe how incredibly awesome, knowledgeable, and helpful Bobby was. With so many options out there, shopping for a new board and bindings setup was so overwhelming and confusing. I am so grateful for his patience and for all the amazing information he gave me. Bobby took the time to learn about my goals and my riding style and provided me several options that would help take me to the next level. He is the real deal, and an absolute gem. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Take it from someone who’s been snowboarding and has a lot of knowledge of gear already. This guy knows more than anyone I’ve ever talked to about gear. He genuinely cares and wants to help make you a better rider

    To start, I'm not a big spender. I could have used a friend's employee discount at REI and saved a bunch money, but I wouldn't have known what to get had Bobby not been helping me along the way. Sure I spent some extra, but I love this personalized experience. Hard to put a price on his expertise. I have wasted a bunch of money shopping in Sun and Ski and having an inexperienced salesmen size me wrong and suggest the wrong equipment. He's not a salesmen, and he legitimately cares about putting you in the right equipment based on your wants and needs. I have been working a ton lately and Curated works perfectly for me. It gives me so much flexibility when it's hard to make any time to run errands. Bobby spent A LOT of time answering my questions in great detail, and I can truly say I learned quite a bit regarding the technical aspects of a snowboard. I think Bobby was meant for this haha. I'm so pumped to get out there this winter! Thanks again for helping me out again this time around. Until next time!

    Bobby will save your life!
    Here's the story: I had spent many hours in snowboard shopping purgatory before I found curated.com. I was reading reviews all over the internet, and at about midnight last night, I stumbled upon the expert advice section. I gambled and decided to fill out the form to talk to an expert, doubting that anyone would be on the other end. But there he was - Bobby - a true brother and guide. I spilled out exactly what I needed and even though he almost gave me Proto FOMO, we chatted, joked and researched our way to the Salomon Assassin as the perfect choice. I am so grateful to have met him and will be a livelong advocate for this platform. It was such a casual conversation, which saved me from buying the wrong stuff. I'll be sure to send my friends his way, and you should too! Hey Bobby, let me ride your Proto FR if I ever run into you. Thanks again bruv!

    First off Bobby knew exactly what he was doing. I told him my price range for each product and he found the best quality stuff for the price. After talking a while we found out that he used to ride where I ride so we ended up having a lot in common. I would recommend Bobby to anyone and everyone because he truly wants what’s best for the customer.
