Default Burton Hero Sizing

Hi, I need help choosing which size Burton Hero I should get, 149 or 152. I mainly ride groomers and parks. I weigh roughly 163lbs and is 5'7" tall, my boot size is 9.5.

Out of those two I would say the 152. You'll want the bit of extra length for the groomers, while it will still be flexible enough for the park. I'm not totally sure that you don't want to go even larger (or with a different board, but that's an entirely different story ).

The 152 would be okay but think a more ideal size would be the 155. About same stats as you(5'8"/165lbs ish/size 9 boot) and I got a 155 Hero to check out the ICS system.

From Burtons sizing guide for the Hero

152 ideal weight range-115-165 lbs. / 52-74 kg.
155 ideal weight range-120-170 lbs. / 54-77 kg.

go with a 152 or better yet the 155, the hero is already a soft board you will probably need the extra length

Neither... 155 Hero is the size for you. If you are 100% park, 152 mo betta. You're going to slap yourself when you take that 152 out on anything remotely steep.
