"Hi looking at the super hero for next winter im 170 lbs 5'9'' - used to ride a old jeff brushie 153 the red orange and silver 1 for 10 years and loved it. Currently on a 156 volkl squad. So like the very light buttery boards. What size do think would suit best 151 or 154 . Also looking at the Harvest board would this do the job as well or do you think the SH would be better. Thanks Gary"

"The Super Hero is a great board, easy to ride and flexible. Since you have experience riding I would suggest a longer size board, maybe even a 158. Typically your board should come up to chin height. Give or take an inch or so depending on your skill level."

"Ride the 151. I rode all of the Burton Hero 155s for about 4 years. Fun. Love the superhero but you have to drop down the recommended 5cms. I am a jibber but this board rides well on kickers as well. A little tough in chop but sick in the pow...no joke, it is the most fun I have ever had on a board because of the board itself."

"Hi Ashley Thanks for the reply, forgot to say I also have a 158cm Ride Highlife for pow days - so the superhero would be by fun jib board. So hoping the 2 boards would work well together, I still have the squad as well but only ever take the 2 boards away. Gary "

"With all due respect to Ashley and the Peter Glenn staff, the "chin method" of determining snowboard length is pretty outdated. You should be selecting length based upon your weight. The board does not know or care how tall you are, but the flex of the board for each length definitely changes depending on the weight of the rider on top of it. For example, a 156cm deck for a rider that is 6'1" 180lbs will flex similarly for a rider who is 5'4" 180lbs. Also, with the Nug Raduction tech, you're going to want to size down 4-5cm or whatever Burton says. Depending on your riding style, normally a rider that is 170lbs would be on say a 154-156cm deck for park riding. Obviously, for just jibbing and messing around, you can go shorter. And then with Nug tech, you can go 4-5cm shorter than that."

"I am looking for a good park board. I ride mainly park rails, boxes, and jumps. Jibbing and tapping and playing on everything I see. I'm just having trouble making a decision because I'm spinning on jumps between 20' and 30'. Need something super playful, rail friendly, and can STICK SPINS without washing out! Too many good boards to choose from. Kinda want to stick to Burton. 165 lbs, 5'10". Any suggestions?"

"The Burton Super Hero is a great board, unfortunately we are sold out! Burton has another really awesome board for the park with lots of pop, snap, and really easy to maneuver. Check it out, its called the Burton Deuces. "

"So I'm coming down from a 10 year old Burton Balance 157.5 to a Super Hero. This should make park riding much easier for me. I'm 5'9" 155 lbs, should I go 151 or 154? 151 seems way too "skaty" for me. I ordered the 154 so will I regret it?"
