Ascend to the good stuff, and surf it like a glassy barrel on the way down.
We don't have to tell you about the advantages of a splitboard—the motivation for ascending to untracked lines should be obvious. What may not be so obvious, however, is how the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard gives you access to more powder stashes than ever before. The Hovercraft's huge nose, tapered set-back shape, and directional CamRock profile deliver insane float in powder and will open your eyes to zones you previously considered unrideable. When the avy risk is high but you're jonesing for solitude, reach for the Hovercraft and scope out some low-angle trees—you'll be amazed at how much fun you can have on this board.
- Directional hybrid shape uses camber underfoot for stability and hardpack edge grip, with rocker in the nose for awesome floatation
- Film topsheet reduces weight and environmental impact without compromising durability
- Blunt nose for reduced swing weight and easier planing in powder, crud, or corn
- FSC-certified full wood core is light, strong, and sustainably farmed
- Mellow Magne-Traction edge design adds contact points for improved grip, while still letting you finesse your turns
- Beefed-up edges are 250% stronger than traditional edge layups to withstand serious impacts without blowing out
- Sintered base for durability and speed, with alternating color patterns to reduce wasted materials
- Skins, bindings, and hardware sold separately

I LOVE the regular version of this board. It is the funnest board in powder ever. The split version of this is just the same when combinded with a set of Karakoram splitboard bindings. So much fun! There is one area in the splitboard construction where they could do some major improvement. The touring inserts are way to far back. They follow the same pattern as the solution in regards to spacing, but the thing is that board has a very different shape. It has not tail. So with the touring brackets being so far back you tend to sink on your tail a little bit when touring. The only area where it is a huge hassle is when you are touring up steep terrain and having to do sharp switchbacks. It makes it really hard to kick the tips around. I am almost contemplating re-drilling the touring inserts on this thing, but to be honest its not a huge problem. It's just something that would be nice to see them fix in future models. Again, this thing is so much fun to ride in powder and it makes touring in a the backcountry a blast.
