Hero or just the common man?
I bought this board as my first rocker setup. I used EXILE est bindings and had the occasion to ride it both in the Midwest as well as several resorts in Utah. The Hero is a very forgiving board but for a seasoned rider it is not confidence inspiring. I never felt comfortable pointing it on larger jumps and in hardpack conditions it's edge hold was less than ideal. It was very playful for small mountain parks and butters for sure and it did give me confidence to learn some new spins, but once they were down and I wanted to take them to bigger features it's soft and inconsistent flex held me back. I was also not impressed with the quality. Having ridden Burton boards for over 20 years My first Hero deck lasted 3 weeks before the board cracked through the core at a core join section near the tail. Burton WAS a rock star as I had a new board in less than a week through the W48 program! The second one did not crack but after one season the base, top sheet, and edges were torn up even with regular maintenance. While this is a good board for people wanting to try out rocker and a newer rider, I would not choose board this if you are riding bigger features or are hard on your gear. I would give it 2.5 stars if that was an option....
will this board work with my burton doom...
will this board work with my burton doom bindings?
If your bindings came with a two hole disk then yes. If they didn't don't worry cause the board comes with them. So you are stoked. That is going to be a killer set-up.
this was day one on my hero, my first reverse camber board chris swainston liked the steez hopefully you will too.
Do you ship burton gear/boards to Australia....
Do you ship burton gear/boards to Australia. Or any other brand for that matter
Sorry man we don't ship outside the US. I suggest you get a friend in the states to buy it and ship it to you. Do it, this board is well worth it.
i just got this board and all i can ever think of now when i hear the word hero is butter. i can butter better on carpet than i could with my old board. all i can say is get this. it is a great board for a great price and its a board for everyone, and everything. with the v rocker it just makes it a better feel. i love it already
WHAT IS THE BEST BINDINGS FOR THIS BOARD...
WHAT IS THE BEST BINDINGS FOR THIS BOARD I RIDE ALL OVER THE MOUNTAIN AND I LIKE GOING FAST TO BEAT MY SKIER FRIENDS SO WHAT SHOULD I GO FOR
You are gonna have to rock the EST's on this deck. It has Burtons 'channel' system on it, so any binding other than an ICS or the EST will not work
You dont really need the EST's for the channel, you just need the "retro discs" with only 2 holes instead of four. That way yo can rock your old board. You should get The EST's if you have the money because its so easy to adjust and get the bindings right where you want. And if you have a board like this, with the cushioning in it, you wont have the plastic discs under you and it would technically be a softer landing.

the price says $292.47 is that us dollars does anyone know
Yes all the product on this site is in US dollars
Every one says this board is wicked flexible...
Every one says this board is wicked flexible is it even that flexible?
This board is definately flexable for a rocker, but not the most flexy on the market. Because of the V-Rocker its a very playful board, and very forgiving when lading sketchy. Burton makes a few different zones on it. V-rocker inbetween your feet, a nose and tail rocker, and pressure distribution edges to keep a good bite on the snow. If you want something more flexy than this, I would go for a Signal Park Rocker(if you can find one), or the Rome Postermania 1985. It is still a fun and flexy deck tho
When you first get it you'll think everyone has been lying to you. After a few good days on it, you'll see that is is super soft. This is perfect for killing it in the urban arena. Great for pressing anything. If you want a super soft playful deck, run this.
well, i got this back in late february and haven't had enough snow to use it, gotta wait now... but it looks amazing, i ended up getting this instead of a wide and it seems fine, i took my bindings off my other board and slapped them on this one for a little to see if it would work, it didn't seem that my toes dragged at all on the carpet, now i take it out almost every day to look at it for a minute, but it came with a plastic sleeve over it, and this is sort of random, but i sort of want more of them and you can't buy them anywhere, o well. i don't even need it too much...
i have a 152 board, and want a better one...
i have a 152 board, and want a better one for next winter for a lower price mostly for park. but i have a size 11 boot, it says on burton.com when i look at this that it fits large bindings, would i have to get a wide board to fit some bindings . cuz i don't want another 152 for park (which is minimum size for wide i think.
You don't need a wide, but it could help. I wear an 11.5 boot and don't get anything with a waist under 255mm usually. You'd be fine with 252 or 253 plus.
Go with the wide, it is better. Most people don't agree, but your feet should be in a large binding with a wide board.
o well, i got the last 149 in stock for now, phew thought i would miss it

hey i have been looking into the burton hero. i like riding powder as well as park. i am 5'2 and weigh about 95-100 lbs. would the 149 or 152 work best i powder?
152 for sure. I'm guessing you will be growing as well. So go with the 152.
heyy i'm debating about this board for my...
heyy i'm debating about this board for my park riding, i like to throw threes, burtter, boardslides, and hand rails, and hit big jumps, should or would i need to detune the edges to ride park?
I ride this board in the park and I didn't detune at all. I spend a lot of my time jibbing and I have yet to catch on a rail with it. The hero is a great park board. I feel so much more comfortable on it vs camber park boards. The hero is easier to spin with and it feels great on rails. Solid board for park and pow (but its kinda weak on groomers).
id recommend detuning any board thats ridden in park for about 6-8 inches in the very middle of the edge, as if you were doing a perfect boardslide, and doing so doesnt effect your edge hold much at all, but helps alot doing gap to boards and gap to lips
but this board sounds like itll do everything you need and more!
Such a fun board for POWDER. I rode the HERO up at Baldface for 3 days. 55cm's of fresh and this handled so well. The nose finds its way to the top of the snow no matter how deep you get. GREAT landings off drops into powder. It's not the best for groomers but it will still get the job done.
EST system is my favorite binding set-up ever. So with the flex of the board and versatility of binding placement one of my most used boards. Especially when there is fresh snow.

Hey I am 5'8" 180lbs, and I already have a smaller 152 snowboard. What size should I get if i want to ride this board for park but also quite a bit of all mountain? Also would this board work well with K2 cinch bindings, or should I eventually get ESTs?
This board is more for the park. If you are looking for an all mountain and park board, you could look at the custom, X8, or the jeremy jones. These are built to handle every type of terrain. Yes you would need to get different bindings. Any burton binding as well as the EST bindings will work on this board.
if you like the cinchs, get some flows (this years) and get the channel disk. the cinchs are in between regular and flow style bindings. if you like simplicity and quickness of the cinchs, definitely get flows

whyd the price go back up? haha. i was about to buy it and then it went up like 50 bucks. so much for that lol.
Haha. I'm happy it just went back up. I just bought one for $350 or something and I was pissed it went down so much.
DogFunk has like random sales. Apparently, sales fluctuated a lot at end of season.
lol im not. they lost me as a customer haha.

I'm a beginner rider. I went to Burton's website and according to the site, this board would fit me well. I'm 5'10 and weigh roughly around 187 lbs. It sized me up to the 162cm. I'm thinking of going with the 158 since I'm just beginning. Would this board be a good beginner board? If not, then which Burton board is a good beginner board?
This is a perfect board to hit of the park or street rails. It will be great for you to learn on. I normally would suggest a different board, but for the price you can not go wrong. It is really soft, this will let you have complete control over the board. You will be stoked on this for sure.
I agree. You'd do very well on this board. The rocker is fun to ride and you'll progress faster on it. I'm 5' 11" and 200lbs and I ride the 158 fine, so you can ride a 58 no prob.
I am thinking about buying this board, but...
I am thinking about buying this board, but my bindings are burton missions and are not est's. will I have to buy a new pair of est bindings to use this board?
No but you will have to make sure you have a two-hole disk. You can get these from you local shop. No need to get rid of your bindings to upgrade your board.
not too sure wut that is but ill figure it out lol
