Description: Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard

This chunder buster loves to go fast, blast, and dodge through the tightest trees. It's a quiver-of-one built with an attention to detail found only in our Family Tree line.

We spend a lot of time poking around Vermont's tight trees and icy lines, so we built the Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard to blast through it all. It's a daily driver with a build and materials worthy of the Family Tree name. The directional shape has enough taper to float the nose on deeper days, while the board's directional camber and flex maintain the pop to keep it lively in all conditions and terrain. Strategically placed glass stiffens up the nose and tail for bump-busting power and response.

Key Features of Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard:
  • Freeride Directional Shape features a setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle stance when riding flat base, and on edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess of a directional deck
  • 12mm Taper provides a versatile ride that promotes free and easy turns, making this board perfect for riding in any condition
  • Directional Camber Bend has camber under both feet for stability through deep-diving turns and variable conditions and a rockered nose that adds lift for increased float
  • Directional Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions
  • Super Fly II 700G Core uses stronger and lighter wood to provide pop and strength while reducing overall weight; Dualzone EGD engineered wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones perpendicular to the core for more edge-hold, response, and strength
  • 45º Carbon Highlights Fiberglass build optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine-tune torsional feel
  • WFO Base infuses specially formulated wax deep into the pores of the extra-absorbent, high-density recycled sintered material, making it ultradurable for riding all season in any condition
  • The Channel® Board Mount is designed to help dial in the perfect stance and is compatible with all major bindings

Hey, regarding size. I’m 185 lbs (5’10”) and 10.5 boot size (binding size M) . The specs on the Burton site recommend a 156 cm board for the 150-200 lbs range.
But I find this a bit short; is there a reason why this board should be ridden short?
Should I get a 156, 156W or go to 160 cm?

BEST ANSWER: I’m about the same size as you, I’ve been riding the 160 and wouldn’t have it any other way. I’d say the practical choice depends on how you intend to ride the board, if you think 156 is to short for your style, go with the 160.
I believe the sizing options the burton provides are so you can see what the shortest board you can feasibly ride is, with the size you should get being more personal preference.
