Default Burton Super Hero Flex

Hey guys

Just wondering how do you gys find the flex of this board to be? I am finding it somewhat stiff but maybe thats just me? I have a 22inch stance on a 151cm. Also just how much can I try to flex it? Will it break if I am too agressive?

i find the flex to be mid-soft, I have a 23 inch stance on a 158W though. I think you might be too far on the nose and tail and are trying to flex by lifting your legs and not be shifting your wieght.

Actually the farther apart my stance is the more I can flex it. In fact when I tried a 23.5 inch stance on it and the flex was awesome but thats way to wide for me. At 22 inches it is harder for me to flex it. How do you like your super hero?

I love it, really fun and playful while being super stable. I have zero complaints about it.

Nice! However that raises a question I have always wondered about. What does playful mean?

I would say it means different things to different people.

To me it means I can manipulate the board and screw around without worrying too much about edges or the board fighting me back.
