The 2023 Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero should be your daily driver when carving icy slopes in Australia or cutting through tight trees in the USA.

Go fast and dominate any terrain with this do-it-all quiver of a snowboard.

Skill Level: Intermediate / Expert

Board Type: All Mountain

Camber Type: Directional Camber

The original, tried and true camber type, and the advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision. Traditional camber is the most aggressive camber type, offering unmatched power, response, and edge control. Directional Camber puts rocker in the nose of the board, adding extra float in powder while retaining the response and stability of traditional camber.

Flex: 6.5/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)

Twin Flex - This board flexes the same in the nose and tail, allowing you to ride, pop, and press the same in regular and switch.

Shape: Directional

This board has a shape designed specifically for freeriding, featuring a longer and wider nose and a shorter, 12mm tapered tail which combine to give you effortless float in powder and better performance riding forwards.

Core:

Super Fly II 700G - This core features stronger and lighter woods targeted in specific areas, which provides more pop and strength while reducing weight.

Dualzone EGD - The wood grain of the core is positioned along the heel and toe edge in two unbroken zones perpendicular to the rest of the core, which gives consistent edge hold and strength.

45° Carbon Highlights - A tip to tail carbon layer reduces weight and contains 45° angled fibres, fine tuning the torsional flex to make a more aggressive ride.

Squeezebox - Squeezebox consists of thicker, more powerful sections combined with thinner, more flexible sections profiled throughout the core. This enhances energy transfer and makes the board snappier and more stable.

Base: Recycled Sintered WFO

Standing for Wide F!#@ing Open, this base made from an extra absorbent, high density sintered material that is infused with a specially formulated wax, resulting in an ultra durable base that rides Wide F!#@ing Open.

Mounting System: The Channel

The Burton Channel system forgoes your traditional 4-screw mounting system and introduces a channel for your front and rear inserts. This allows you to fine-tune your stance width, and gives you more freedom in your stance location. The Channel is compatible with most major binding brands, but works best with Burton EST bindings.

Additional Features:

Infinite Ride - Burton is able to maximise pop and performance by overbuilding their boards in the factory, and then using machinery to break it down for you. This allows your board to ride the same from day one, to day 100, season after season.

Pro Tip - The tip and tail of this board taper out at the points, reducing swing weight and promoting mobility.

Super Sap Epoxy - Super Sap is a bio-based resin that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional petroleum-based epoxies.
