Default Burton Superhero 2014

Hi

I'm definitely a beginner but quickly learned snowboarding. Usually do all blue runs.
I only do free ride and don't intent to do park or freestyle.

I'm 49 and weigh 180.

I just recently purchased the Burton Superhero 2014 and wanted to know if anyone had used the board and thinks it would be a good board for a noob doing free rides on mostly blues.

Thanks and appreciate the opinions.

Flat between the feet with rocker outside. It will feel loose to ride which is good for a beginner.

Well a traditional camber board is the opposite of loose. It grips hard , gives maximum edge hold and will also throw your ass into the snow if you get lazy ;-)
A rocker or hybrid like yours is more forgiving but will lack the edge hold therefore loose is a pretty good description of how it will ride.

Thanks man. I always rented boards before and found those hard to switch with. Would catch edges and eat snow. Did better last time I went but since I ride more heel side my legs would kill me on long runs.

Thanks for the info. Seems this will be a good board for me then.
