Yeah I was thinking about waiting till next year and the custom v. I had fun on the Hero but like I said was a little light and soft for the faster stuff. Especially if it was chopped up.

I live in Hawaii and only get about 15 days a year so I need just one board that can best fit my style. I would say bout 75% freeride and powder, just started messin around with freestyle stuff and buttering and maybe 5% in the parks. Most of the jumps are natural ones with a few small to medium stuff thrown in. Being a surfer I really like the feel of the rocker boards.

I just wanted to get an idea of the differences between the two boards from someone who has tried both. Thanks for the help guys.
