Meh

I really like this board and all of the flexyness. I would get tons of compliment because my butters were so high. But on day I messed up on a jump and landed on the nose of my board and it crcked the whole top layer. I know have a Forum board.

there is a huge crack in the top layer of my board and I got in September from dogfunk, is there a warranty on the board, could I get a new one?

Responded on

Dogfunk has great warranty/return policies. I had a board that I rode a few times and didn't like so I exchanged it no questions asked. Just call em up or email and you can return or exchange.

Burton comes with a great warranty called W48 you send it to them and within 48 business hours they will have sent your board back out or contacted you with help.

Burton Hero Wide Dominates!!

This board totally kills it in whateva! You can throw anything at this board, and it performs great in everything. Holds a great edge, fun, poppy board, and has a great flex for when you hit up the park. If you don't own this board you are missing out!!!!!

It does but you can always buy the retro discs that converts the channel to fit any reg style binding.

I am 5 ft 9 in. 170 lbs. I am curious if this board is right for me. I am intermediate to advance level rider. I have been riding super stiff boards for sometime but now think I want a soft board for just messing around. I.E. small jumps/jibbing. Would this thing be fit for me?

Responded on

Also, could I use my existing Burton Mission bindings. They are like 4 years old or so and are the 4 screw plate.

Best Answer Responded on

The Hero is soft for sure. It is really playful and great for pressing and jibbing. You'll have a great time killing it.

Responded on

You just need some different base plates. I think they're called retro discs?

how well could this board take a hit?

how well could this board take a hit?

Responded on

Well it does have a Sintered base, so its a good durable base. Low maintenence, easy to repair, and suoer fast. But itll take a hit just like any other board out. Be good to it, and it will do the same back

Responded on

As well as any other board. Snowboards are not supposed to take direct impacts from sharp objects like rocks. If you are riding it at the mountain, it should take everything in stride unless you run into a tree or rail head on. It is durable, but wood can only handle so much.

Responded on

i smashed into an iron poll at fair speed and all good slight hair crack surprising very tough board

Is the Burton Hero appropriate for all mountain, as well as park riding?

Best Answer Responded on

Is is a park board. It is really soft an made to be a jib board. I wouldn't use it as my big mountain powder board, but every once in a while would be fun.

Responded on

Definitely agree with Lyman! It's pretty light weight but hitting some booters at medium speeds would be a blast.

How do is it in the park? Flexible for jibbing? Also, how is it compared to the BLUNT?

Responded on

This is made for hand rails. Supper soft, pressing, jibbing and all that jazz for sure. If that is all you do, then do it up for sure. nicer than the blunt for sure.

Responded on

the type of riding i do is a lot of jibbing, small jumps, and some off trail powder runs through trees, with occasional groomers, would you recommend the hero or the blunt?

Posted on

but if I ride a 152, how easy will grabs and stuff be?

Responded on

The smaller the board, the less swing weight your board will have. So rotations will be easier for sure. It more depends on how flexable you are to get to the grab. If you feel more comfortable with grabs on a bigger deck, than go that rout. Im 6'0, 170lbs and i ride a Rome machine 154w. But it also depends on what you ride primarily, ie park, pipe, groomers, pow etc. Personally i like a smaller deck in the park, but my machine is my all around killer

Responded on

what is the shortest i should go for all out park?

Responded on

I have this board in a 158 and I'm somewhere around 190-195lbs. I ride everything with it or I'd be on a 154 or 155 (park specific).

Posted on

if I want to shred the park with a freestyle board, but normally ride a 153 (wide only), would a 152 be fine? because that still seems a bit long for a freestyle board

Responded on

If you normally ride a 153 then you can ride a 152 fine. I don't know how tall or heavy you are, but if you're normally on a 153 then you could go shorter than 152 for park, but you'd be fine on the 152. I ride this in a 158 in the park (and sometimes a 156 capita snowboard in the park too).

Responded on

im about 150 lbs and like 5'7" ish, someone said to me that a 148 or so would be good for me

Responded on

Are you on a wide because your boot size is over a 10.5? Also, How much do you wiegh? Sometimes if you go too small the board might be too squirrly. You can go small but make sure you are accounting for flex and personal wieght.

Posted on

if i like going in the park all day and live in the northeast (medium amounts of ice in some places) should I get this board, because I have heard that v-rocker doesn't mix well with ice...

Responded on

Totally you should get this board! I also ride in the northeast, ice is great isn't it? haha. I was really skeptical of the v rocker at first but then a got one. This board actually holds a really good edge on icy hard stuff. It took me 2 or 3 runs to totally get used to the different board feel, but after that, WOW this is THE best board I've ever ridden, even on ice.

Responded on

is this board more of a red or a pink color for 152?

Posted on

Do you have to de-tune the edges on this for rails, or are they already rail ready.

Responded on

RAIL READY FOR DAYS! Just pull that think out of the plastic and jib it for days! (seriously, you don't need to at all... some people like to, but I never do as its done at the factory.

Like butter

I picked up a hero ltd wide from my local boardshop (killer price too- $330 brand new) with a set of mission ests the day before a trip, and out of the bag this board rode like magic. The v rocker isnt noticable under your feet, but you can feel how quickly and smoothly this board rotates from heel to toe edge. the spoon tips and tail are another unnoticable trait until youre using them. Ive heard about the v-rocker and bananananana boards washing out on big kickers, but this thing is so soft that i was able to just butter out of sketchy landings and cruise off. The ONLY downside to this board is the lack of the carbon I beam like the Joystick. The Hero still snaps, but seems like it could use some "oomph"

How much wider is this then the regular hero?

Responded on

It depends on what size you're looking at. I have a hero wide 158 that has a waist of 264mm, but the regular version in 158 is going to have a waist in the mid 250s. For totally accurate specifics on all sizes of the wide and regular check out burton's site http://www.burton.com/ and there you can compare the wide and regular side by side.

Is there much noticable difference with the Wide as opposed to the regular Hero? whats different between the two?

Responded on

The wide is just fatter, if you have 11+ shoe size get the wide.

Responded on

the wide probally is a bit stiffer than regular. thats how most boards are
