When I bought this board, I was looking for a daily driver. A board I can use in a variety of conditions and terrains to feel in control, but also not work myself to death turning or popping. I was also looking something for that is geared toward big mountain riding: steep pitches, tight turns, littered with side hits and... Read more

The Hometown Hero features a hybrid rocker/camber profile, with a rocker nose and tail and camber underfoot. This profile provides excellent float in powder, while still providing good edge control and responsiveness on hardpack. The 3D contoured based allows for additional edge hold and float in powder. It is ideal for an intermediate to advanced rider looking for a medium/stiff... Read more
Ideal for
  • great for freeriding in powder, cruising on groomers, and even hitting jumps and rails in the park.
  • unique 3D Contoured base design that provides excellent edge hold and stability, especially on hardpack and icy conditions.
  • board's directional shape, set-back stance, and rocker profile make it easy to float on deep powder and maintain speed.
Not ideal for
  • fairly stiff board, which may not be suitable for beginner riders or those who prefer a more playful ride.
  • designed to be ridden in one direction, which means that it may not perform as well for switch riding

Codie Horn tested this product
The Burton Hometown hero is your all mountain board that leans a little more to the free riding side. The set back bindings give the nose a little more float in order to keep you on top of the POW on those big dump days. It's a great carving board that will hold a great line at high speeds. ...

Ideal for
  • Riding all resort terrain
  • side hits and between the trees
  • carving and good float in the nose
Not ideal for
  • doesn't ride switch great
  • keep it out of the park
  • longer nose and shorter tail

Makes You Feel Like a Hero

Originally posted at www.burton.com on Feb 19, 2024
Absolutely loving this board! 20+ years riding boards of all shapes and sizes. Took a few years off riding, and wanted a all-around directional board to accompany me as I get back into it. This board has been a blast. has a familiar feeling camber profile, with plenty of stiffness but some torsional flex. Really confidence inspiring and predictable when hard charging. Tail is small but has plenty of snap. I'm able to really load it up on side hits and get big airtime. The early rise in the nose makes it feel shorter than it is in trees. Sintered base is fast! I'm constantly passing skiers and boarders on flatter terrain. Also surprisingly freestyle friendly. Feels really good for a freeride board on rails and smaller jumps. Cons? well the top sheet gets scratched super easily which is annoying. Ice is this boards kryptonite. Edge hold just doesn't cut it there for some reason. As long as its not icy though, this board absolutely rips. Top 3 board I've ever ridden hands down. Maybe the best. Constantly feeling like a hero on this thing.

Great knowledge and immaculate vibes
5 /5
Spencer curated my first snowboard, boot, and binding set up. He took time to understand me, my skill level, and aesthetic and riding preferences before making any reccomendations. What struck me the most was that you can genuinely tell he wants to find the best for you! He welcomes your feedback and easily adapts your curations according to your concerns. On top of that, Spencer went above and beyond by crafting a video going through the items in my curation, their advantages, and drawbacks. He patiently answered all my questions, no matter how basic they seemed. By the end of our interaction, I felt more confident and knowledgable of my purchase. I can't recommend this guy enough. Now I'm geared up and ready!

Tyler was able to provide a multitude of great options for me to check out. Being someone of a large boot size it was hard finding any boots within a reasonable price range that fit size 13 and up. Tyler was able to provide me with the best options I had seen up to this point and I couldn't be happier with the purchase I made today.

Jamie was extremely helpful in helping me get to a better understanding of what I needed and what I was getting. Honestly, I believe I probably would've been lost trying to do all of this on my own. He provided plenty of options for gear as well as providing an informative and personalized video on his board, boots, and binding recommendations. He was responsive and was quick to tailor his suggestions as I provided additional information. He made my first experience with Curated very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Honestly blew my expectations of what Curated was and how the process is working with an expert like Jamie. I would highly recommend working with him.
