Now this is float.
The Jones Hovercraft snowboard has been racking up awards left and right. But it's just not right that the boys get to have all the fun, which is why Jones wised up and introduced the women's Hovercraft. The shape is inspired by old school pow boards, but thanks to a heaping spoonful of modern tech, it'll handle way more than just powder. The long rockered nose yields crazy float on deep days, but camber under foot and Magne-Traction keep it stable even when it's crusty. Strap one to your feet and see what all the fuss is about.
Camber between the feet keeps the Hovercraft planted at speed. The short, stiff tail keeps things in control if you find yourself in the back seat, and the long rockered nose floats like a feather in the deep, and hovers over chop when the going gets crusty. An open radius sidecut keeps it stable at speed, despite its shorter lengths. Mellow Magne-Traction places bumps along the edge, for insane edgehold, even on ice. Biax fiberglass gives it a bit more torsional flex for a smooth ride. The sintered base holds a bunch of wax, and runs crazy fast. The wood topsheet looks gorgeous, and it's much more eco-friendly than fiberglass. Between the wider waist width and shovel-shaped nose, it packs a lot of surface area into a smaller board, allowing you to downsize 6-8 cm from your normal board, without sacrificing stability or float.

Love this board. As you'd expect, floats like a dream in pow but it'll go everywhere (didn't try it out in park), holds an edge amazingly well, handles speed and slices through the crud.
Im 5' 9" and 70kg, riding the 152 women's in Niseko Japan. No need to upsize. Light as a feather.
I'm renting it now, but buying it when I leave.
