how far should you downsize for park,...
how far should you downsize for park, because i should ride about a 155 or so, but when i got the hero last year i downsized all the way to a 149. i might get more of a all mountain this year, what should i get for size? i am about 5' 9" and about 165 lbs.
I would run the 155. I ride a 155 all the time. It's not that big for the park and it's not that small for all mountain riding either.

hey i was looking for a new board i mostly do parks but sometimes go on black dimonds and stuff and sometimes go to colorado would this be a good board
The Hero is super soft and is a great jibbing board. It is fun for buttering and pressing. You might want to check out the Custom Flying V. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-custom-flying-v-snowboard this is an awesome board for all times of terrain.
I am going to purchase a Burton Hero or a...
I am going to purchase a Burton Hero or a k2 WWW. Currently, I own an all-mountain, traditional camber board. I am wanting a board for medium to large kickers and boxes. As an old guy, I am board sliding a bit on the boxes, easy grabs in the air and MAY spin 3's off larger jumps. Definitely want to butter and ride some mannys, which I have never done. Suggestion on which board would be best?
I can't say for sure which would be better, but I used to ride a hero. My issue with the hero was edge hold. It was solid on rails, and solid on up to 30 footers, plus absolutely amazing in pow, but I couldn't stop hardly. At the point I had it I had 9 years riding under my belt so its not like I was a beginner on it. Edge hold was real sketchy on anything but real soft snow or slush. I was falling over trying to stop because the board would slide out from under me. If you're wanting a board strictly for lapping the park the hero is great, but not really for anything else, you really have to work to dig in an edge on a hard packed black diamond trail, for that kind of riding I much prefer camber. I don't have any experience with the K2. This is just my opinion, a lot of people really love the hero, but I sold mine after a month and a half because spending about half my time outside the park it wasn't really working for me.
The Hero is made to be a rail board, it is super soft and flexible, great for pressing and jumps. It is not made to hand hard turns when going as fast as you can. But if you use it for rails you will be stoked for sure.
I disagree with justin. They made some upgrades on the '11 model. I bought this board at the beginning of the season and have never encountered a problem with holding an edge. The board is great, both in the park and on the mountain. Its a very fast board. My friends and I bomb hills as sort of a 4-5 person race and I almost always win. Even though I've yet to wax my board since it comes with the factory wax, and most of my friends wax theirs after everytrip, I still pull away from them with ease. I would recommend the hero for you.
I demoed this board last year. Ultra forgiving. Very ground spinny and buttery. Very soft. Pretty good for powdery moguls.
Sucks for carving. Sucks for even medium speeds.
Check out the Fix. I demoed that too and it seems to be better for what you want. But it depends on what you mean by "large kickers". You can't always have the best of all worlds.

I am 5'8 and 130 lbs, want to do alot of park but still want to be able to ride the rest of the mountain, what size would be best?
The 149 would work, it is a bit small, but you don't weigh that much so you should be all good. You will have a great time for sure.

I'm 5'7, 120 pounds. is 145-149 a good range?
You are correct, any of those sizes will work for you.

I need help regarding sizing. I am a male, 5'6", 140lbs, size 8 shoe. What size should I get?
go to your local shop and ask them....they are the pros
Depends on riding style, 149 for strait park jibs, 152 for park and playful cruising, 155 for more all mountain riding. If you're lucky enough to ride nothing but pow then the 158's where its at. I am not an expert, but have 11 years of riding experience and that's what I would do.
I would run the 152
thanks for the answers!

I have been riding a Gnu Carbon High Beam 152 and have realised it is too big i was looking for something my size im 5'8 and 120 lbs would the 149 work well for me in the park and some decently difficult runs.
Size 9 boot
The 149 will be perfect
For sure, 149 will be awesome.

Hi im 5 foot 11 and 150 lbs. what size board should i get in the Hero. I also have a size 12 shoe.
I would definitely rock a WIDE board. Your safest bet would be a 155W...but you could rock the a 152W if you prefer a shorter board.
