The Curated Take
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 board.

- 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.
- fairly stiff board, which may not be suitable for beginner riders or those who prefer a more playful ride.
