Burton Hero Sizing Suggestions
 
I've found a good deal on some past season Hero flying V, process flying c, and custom flying v.

Just curious on some sizing suggestions.. I'm currently on a 154 but it was pretty beat up when I got it and has edge issues so I don't really know if the size is correct or if the issues are from the other things.

I'm 6' even and weight about 170 with a 9.5 boots.

Was looking at going up in size to the hero 158 but thought I'd see what anyone with more experience has to say

Riding style?

Cruising around resort and slightly off trail. Powder when it's around.

Very beginner levels of boxes and rails in park and buttering. Hoping to progress in that area though.

If you're more focused on park progression get the 154 Hero, otherwise I'd probably say the Process FV in like 56ish or whatever size is near that.

Custom was blah last time I rode one.

Werrrd.

For what you're doing, the Hero 155 will do you well with Park Progression. If it's the burton SUPER Hero, go 151....

I'm assuming the squeezebox one is better, but the Hero I rode was soft, but floated fine in pow and handled Black(a little sketchy sometimes) on down when riding the groomers.

151 even for the Super Hero is too small for 170lbs.

I am the EXACT same stats as you, identical.

I owned a Burton Hero 155, There were lots of times that I wished it was a little bigger. Never once did I wish it was smaller. I put over 70 days on it.
This was my 23rd season.

I would 100% go with the 58

It's all preference, if you like riding smaller boards, go 155, if like larger ones go 158.

I think if he normally rides a 154 the 151 Super Hero should be fine as it uses the Raduction tech....but I think he may just be talking about the regular hero, which makes the point moot.
