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?

Best Answer Responded on

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!
