The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

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.

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

Designed with an attention to detail found only in Burton's Family Tree line, this snowboard is built to handle all conditions and terrain. Whether you're cruising on groomers or shredding through powder, the Hometown Hero delivers a smooth ride with plenty of pop.

Key Features:

Daniela was very good at incorporating her experiences with equipment to answer my questions. She was very responsive to my concerns and all of the interactions were helpful. She knows the Curated resources very well and also shared many of those throughout my search. I highly recommend her.

Alex is the best!!! 💯🙌🏻
5 /5
I’m brand new to snowboarding (but have done other board sports🏄🏻‍♀️🛹) and know nothing about snowboarding! I’m so thankful for Alex because he was able to find me the perfect board, bindings and boots - all within my budget! He also was able to answer all my questions and get back to me fast! On top of which he checked on me after I received my products to ensure everything fit right and was to my liking which I really appreciate! 😊 Lastly he reminded me of my credits that I had from my first purchase and recommend multiple options for things I can spend it on that are easily forgotten about when your new to snowboarding (even though they’re kinda important - such as gloves, goggles, travel case, etc). Definitely will be recommending Alex to all my friends who are interested in getting into snowboarding and for other friends who are planning on changing snowboards but not sure what is best for them! And for sure will be a returning client - when it’s time to change my gear! 😊🏂

Ethan was fantastic
5 /5
I was doing my own research and it was exhausting to be honest. Saw a youtube video and decided to give this a try. Thank goodness I did. Ethan pointed me in the right direction and even recommended some things I was already interested in. Was able to purchase with confidence and that goes a long way. Good looking out Ethan
