Hovercraft: a legendary legacy
A time tested board design proven by first descents, podiums, summits and smiles.
No board in the Jones line can touch the remarkable resumé of the Hovercraft. After 14 seasons in production there’s nothing this time tested board design hasn’t done. From first descents by Jeremy Jones to Baker Banked Slalom wins by Harry Kearney and countless claims of “Best Day Ever!” in between, the Hovercraft’s stunning performance and versatility have been proven in every shred scenario. The thousands of passionate Hovercraft riders around the world also attest to this performance legacy. The nimble acceleration and powerful turning abilities of this compact board design are truly legendary.
The new Hovercraft is a modern manifestation of the cult classic alternative freeride shape that features their most advanced 3D shape tech and groundbreaking recycled materials. The Hovercraft’s new shape keeps the floaty nose, compact tail, directional rocker profile and long sidecut that made the original model so nimble and stable, but its been supercharged with 12mm of spoon bevel in the nose for lightning fast turn initiation and a glide accentuating, speed boosting 3D hull in the tail.
The new Hovercraft is also built with recycled materials from old snowboards making it the most responsibly produced board in the Jones line.
Now a unisex model with sizes to fit riders of every body type, the one and only Hovercraft is ready to win the hearts of powder slashers and all-mountain rippers the world over once again.
After fourteen seasons with only minor model updates, Jones are beyond stoked to debut a completely redesigned Hovercraft shape that has been supercharged with our most advanced 3D shape tech. The new shape is featured on three unisex models – Hovercraft 2.0, Hovercraft 2.0 Split, Ultralight Hovercraft 2.0 Split.
