Description: Burton Super Hero Snowboard
Riding the Burton Super Hero Snowboard is not going to make you the next Marvel hero to be featured in an Avengers sequel, but it will place you a cut above the competition. And you can always wear your Incredible Hulk boxers while riding to make you feel extra special. The Flat Top rocker design of the Burton Super Hero provides optimum balance and control, while also providing you with a catch-free, smooth ride. Another feature that makes this board stand out against mere mortals is the Side Effects feature, which is basically a longer surface area for more contact points with the snow. This gives you much greater grip and edge hold when riding at any speed.

Normally your weight is the major determining factor, but here I think we should consider your height too to determine the correct board. You could ride a 148 for a more park specific board, but for an all-mountain board most companies will put you in something more like a 152 range. You are tall for your weight, and want stability.
The Burton Super Hero Snowboard and the Burton Root Snowboard are both great. The only major differences between the two boards is that the Root has a slight taper and a wider waist width. If you have feet smaller than size 11 get the Super Hero, but if you have size 11+ feet get the Root.
Both can be ridden switch with ease.
The weight range for the Burton Super Hero Snowboard is 125-175 lbs. You fit within the weight range.
You could rider either size. If your boots features shrinkage footprint reduction technology stay with the 157cm, but if your boot don't have it get the 158cm Wide.
This 148cm Burton Super Hero Snowboard would fit you great. It features NudRADuction Technology that allows the user to ride the board 4-5cm shorter that a normal length board.
The Super Hero rips all over the mountain!
The 148cm Burton Super Hero Snowboard would be a good size for you.
I dont do park do you have any suggestions.?
There is one board that always comes to mind for riders who cruise the whole mountain, the Burton Landlord.
It is by far the most fun board I've ripped groomers on over the last two seasons. The Landlord in nimble enough to quickly thrash through trees, stable enough to bomb down hard pack steeps, and with the S-Rocker profile, a slightly tapered tail, and prominent nose will float in powder like a dream.

Burton Suggests that going by weight and height, your optimal size of a Super Hero Snowboard would be a 151... though most of this decision is your preference and the style of snowboarding you do the most.
Good Question! Your Sims bindings use the regular 4 hole mounting system... This Burton Super Hero Snowboard does not! This snowboard uses the Channel System, and will not be compatible. For your bindings look under "mounting pattern" and you want it to say 4X4 or 2X4.
You will be best suited on the 148 Burton Super Hero.
You fit within the weight range of the 145cm & 148cm Burton Super Hero Snowboard (remember with Raduction tech a board's length can be downsized 4cm to 5 cm). The 148cm size would be better for all mountain freestyle riding.
You could go as low as 154 on the Burton Super Hero if you really want to.
Will the Super Hero154 already be a big difference to the custom?
Please advise so I can place my order :-)
The Burton Super Hero Snowboard offers a RADUCTION level of 4 to 5 cm so the 151 is to small. Go for the 154 for the correct size.
The Burton Mission EST Snowboard Bindings are compatible with the Super Hero's Channel System. Check out the Mission EST Bindings HERE: http://www.the-house.com/bt1mise04st14zz-burton-snowboard-bindings.html
What do you consider to be good flex? To a big mountain snowboarder good flex would be stiff but to a jibber a soft flex would be good...
It really depends on how much you weigh. How much do you weigh?
You're right on the money with the 157cm Burton Super Hero Snowboard. It has a proper waist width for your boot size and you fit within the board's weight range. Good pick, the Super Hero is awesome.
What size board should I get?
This board looks really nice, would this be a nice fit and if so what size?
