Product Info

The Jones Hovercraft isn't just a snowboard, it's a new way of life. Instead of just plowing through pow, you're now able to glide over deep snow making it feel like you're floating on air. With the Blunt Nose shape you get the flotation benefits of a much longer board while the swallowtail-esque tail allows for superior control (and float) while also throwin' up huge rooster tails! The Sintered Base allows for superior wax absorption for faster, smoother rides. Change your lifestyle forever with the Jones Hovercraft snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerThis hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern is defined by more tip rocker than tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free.


Flex Rating (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)7, perfect for backcountry and big mountain riding


Blunt NoseA blunt nose adds the flotation benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight.


FSC Wood CoreThe wood is derived from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Full Wood CoresFull poplar and beech wood gives the board more solid snap.


Carbon StringersImproving pop and torsional stiffness and increasing the longevity of the flex profile while providing durability that makes day 100 feel just like day 1 - precise and playful

Triax FiberglassAll Jones Snowboards include TRIAX Fiberglass, utilizing dual density fibers to strengthen high impact zone without adding weight or changing the over all flex of the board.


Sintered BaseThis is the fastest natural base material available due to it's durability and the ability to absorb/retain wax. Added carbon nano particles create a better glide over the snow.

Recycled BaseP-Tex scraps are recycled into new bases to reduce the carbon footprint of the board.


Mello Magne-TractionLike a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magn-Traction improves edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

Stronger EdgesA 250% increase in impact resistance is due to the 35% more steel Jones uses in their edges compared to the industry standard.


Film TopsheetA thin piece of film replaces the traditional topsheet to eliminate plastic and reduce the weight of the board.

Additional Features
