Product Info

The Jones Hovercraft Snowboard does just that in deep snow -- hover -- but this stick is more than a floaty, surfy ride. Designed for women that charge the sickest lines on the mountain, and who aren't afraid to deal with some "variable" conditions to get first tracks. The Jones Hovercraft Snowboard features compact dimensions that keep the board maneuverable in tight chutes or trees but still let it float like a demon once you find that untracked stash.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional Rocker - HovercraftCamber underfoot with a long, gradual tip rocker and slight tail rocker. The rockered nose helps float in powder and improves maneuverability, while camber underfoot aids edgehold. Mild tail rocker lets you choose the turn shape that fits the occasion.


Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)Medium-stiff flex for immediate response and loads of control. Less forgiving but is ready to damage rails, kickers, and anything else you toss at it. Well-rounded flex for all-mountain excursions.


Directional Shape

Blunt Nose"How a board glides in powder, crust, corn, or any snow condition more then an inch deep is dictated by its front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow, watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose, you get the float benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight." - Jeremy Jones

Progressive SidecutAt the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually decreasing the side cut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

Swallow TailMild swallow tail lets the nose of the board float higher in powder.


Jones Classic CoreLaminated, multi-density core of select hardwoods for performance and durability.


Carbon StringersCarbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. The carbon layer keeps the flex profile consistent for the lifetime of the board.

Biax FiberglassBiax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in two directions. The fibers are braided vertically at 90 degrees. This ensures a torsional flex that is more evenly distributed throughout the snowboard. For you, this translates to a snowboard that is easy to handle and jib friendly.


Recycled ABS SidewallsJones is in it for the long haul, and with sustainability in mind they use only recycled plastic for their sidewalls.


Sintered 7000 Series BaseSintered bases contain tiny pores in the structure that hold wax better and result in the fastest running surface known to humankind; Jones' 7000 series bases have added carbon to add speed.

Belt Ground FinishSmooth a flat right from the factory.

Die-cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.


Mellow Magne-Traction™A tiny wave in the edge under your feet results in a catch-free ride with bomber edgehold on any snow surface. "Magne-Traction™ is a key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction™ is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns." - Jeremy Jones.

Oversized Recycled EdgesRecycled, thicker steel reinforces the snowboard's edges to give you exceptional impact resistance and improved production sustainability.

Burned-in GraphicsWhat's better than eco-friendly ink topsheets? No-ink topsheets, of course - Jone's burns the graphic into the topsheet for this board!
