love snowboarding so much that I need my own board

Hello!

I was introduced to snowboarding by my other half and now I am hooked.
taken the lessons and now I'm ooen on the indoor slopes but would prefer to have my own board.
it would be greatly appreciated on some advice. I have looked into boards but I cant decide beteeen the burton clash 2012 or the burton hero 2012?
is there much difference between the 2? I will be mainly using it for park/freestyle.

any advice is greatly appreciated!

I just realized,.. No one's comented to give (her?) any advice/recomendations on either of the boards.

Sorry if we derailed your post and got all distracted waiting for you to give your knicker size! (...I sure hope she's a "She!)

I wish I had some information for you but I really don't know anything about Burton boards so I can't comment on either of those you mentioned. I also don't do any park riding, so I can't even give any recomendations for other boards that might suit your intended purposes.

Hopefully bumping this post will get you a few "pertinent" responses to help you decide.

I think the Hero is a true twin and the clash is a directional twin. although for 2012 they may have both been directional.

Are you only looking into burton boards? I recently got a Lib-Tech Skate Banana and love the Banana Rocker with Magnatraction. it carves good enough and is a fun playful ride otherwise.
