This alternative freeride shred-stick is built for wild riders with a directional camber / rocker profile for versatility in all conditions. In the past decade or so, this board's unique and compact shape, nimble maneuverability, and diverse performance has earned it a cult following. This year, the Hovercraft has a new look with a refined base and topsheet with laser etched markings eliminating all solvent inks. Without any inks on the board, the new Hovercraft is the most sustainably produced board Jones has ever made!

Key Features

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

Traction Tech 1.0 - Offers enhanced edge grip.

3D Base Contour 3.0 - Freeride oriented, 3D Contour Base 3.0 features a generous 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and tail.


FSC™ Classic Core - A full wood, premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex, and solid durability.


Biax Fiberglass - A dual-direction, dual layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun and forgiving ride due to its tensile strength, reliability and snappy response.

V-Core Construction - The V-Core Construction has a slightly softer flex in the center of the board for improved maneuverability and a stiffer flex from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.


Sintered 8000 Base - New super durable material made form Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.


Progressive Sidecut - Delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

Forever Flex - Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

Recycled ABS - ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by only using recycled plastic.

Oversize Recycled Steel Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversize recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

FSC™ Sustainable Wood Core - All Jones wood cores are made with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) certified wood. Every piece of wood used comes from a responsibly managed forest.

1% For The Planet - Jones Snowboards has committed to contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes. The mission of 1% for the Planet is to "build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet."

Supports "Protect Our Winters" - Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by THE Jeremy Jones. It serves to educate about the importance of environmental protection to ensure a prosperous future for the outdoor recreation economy.

Demoed the Hovercraft in Japan. Loved it. Decided to drop some cash on it upon my return. Tactics made it easy with a big discount. Pretty pretty happy with the whole situation.

And the board's been as much fun on my home mountain as it ever was in Japan: stable at speed on the groomers, as twitchy as I need it in the trees and suuuper floaty. Best all rounder.

Perfect board for surfers. Fast rail to rail and fun to attack backside snow lips with. Somewhat squirrelly on the occasional hardback patches. Deep pow zen master.

Asked by David on 10/20/2014
What size board should I get the Jones Hovercraft in if I weigh 165 lbs and have a height of 5'10? I was told elsewhere that I should get a 152 which is what I usually ride but I thought that people rode bigger boards for powder.
Answered by Tyler K (Tactics Employee) on 10/20/2014
Generally people do ride bigger boards for powder but the Hovercraft rides 8-10 sizes bigger than what it actually is. A 152 is really going to ride like a 160-162.
