Packing the volume of an old-school long board into a nimble all-mountain charger, the Jones Hovercraft snowboard is a phenomenon that shatters the stereotypes of your average "pow” board.

  • Blower, crud or crust are no match for the Hovercraft as it floats through anything without sacrificing maneuverability in mixed conditions
  • The blunt nose and directional rocker keep you partying in the pow while the stiff tail and mellow Magne-Traction lock in stability when the fresh tracks are gone
  • Add all this up and there is a good reason why you’ll catch Jeremy Jones riding the Hovercraft on more days than not
  • Directional rocker features more tip rocker than tail rocker and a slight camber in between the bindings
  • Blunt nose offers the float benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight
  • Rockered tip adds float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot delivers added edge hold and response
  • Slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but keeps the tail catch-free when initiating turns and landing switch
  • Mellow Magne-Traction improves edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board; it's like a serrated knife slicing into the snow
  • Full wood core is comfortable and robust; it's a true all-terrain core and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council
  • Film topsheet replaces traditional plastic topsheet, eliminating plastic and reducing the board's weight
  • Sintered base is durable, absorbs wax fast and retains the wax longer; carbon nano particles and other additives enhance glide
  • This base is specially developed by Nidecker and is very resistant to impacts
  • P-tex waste is drastically reduced by flip-flopping base graphic colors between boards; base colors are random, thus specific requests cannot be accommodated
