Gear Question

I ride the whole mountain, but mainly park....

Posted on

I ride the whole mountain, but mainly park. I like soft boards usually. I'm 5' 10'' 200lbs with a size 12 foot and I just ordered a burton hero wide. Would I have been better going with this one? I went hero because 80% of my time or more is spent in the park and I already have a cambered board to ride if things are really icy or I want to hit bigger jumps. Good or bad choice?

The Hero is insane! but so is the joystick. I think you made a good choice but here is the difference:

Hero is softer and not as deep of a sidecut... Joystick is slightly stiffer (medium flex) with a deeper sidecut.

BOTH BOARDS ARE MONEY!!!
