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.

All new, completely redesigned shape

After fourteen seasons with only minor model updates, we 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.

  • Floaty nose, compact tail for nimble maneuvrability
  • Directional rocker profile and long sidecut for stability at speed
  • 12mm of spoon bevel in the nose for lightning fast turn initation
  • 2x 3D speed channels in the tail to reduce friction and improve glide
  • Slightly wider and higher volume than original shape for more float

What is Re-Up Recycle Tech?

Unique to the Hovercraft 2.0 snowboard. Recycling snowboards and upcycling materials into new, high performance snowboards.

Responsibly made performance

We strive to produce gear that balances the three founding pillars of our design ethos - performance, sustainability and innovation.

Built with 100% solar power

As of May 2020, all Jones snowboards and splitboards are made with 100% solar power. Switching our snowboard and splitboard production to 100% solar made a 89% reduction in CO2 compared to non-solar powered production.

Bio Resin

Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes.

100% recycled ABS

Since 2014, all of our snowboards and splitboards have been built with recycled ABS sidewalls. We've used 847 miles of sidewalls since switching to recycled ABS.

Wend Bio Wax

Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with Wend natural wax, a plant blend and biodegradable wax that is also non-toxic.

Sustainably sourced woodcores

All Jones woodcores are made with sustainably sourced wood. Every piece of wood we use in every board comes from a responsibly managed forest.

The new shape is noticeably more nimble and faster edge-to-edge. Turns feel more connected and instantaneous.

The future of performance and sustainability

Hovercraft Snowboard 2.0

The Hovercraft 2.0 is a nimble and powerful all-conditions charger that's also the most responsibly produced model in the Jones line.

Key characteristics

  • 12mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 3D speed channels in the tail reduce friction and improve glide
  • Made with Re-Up Tech. Stringers in the wood core are recycled materials from old snowboards
  • Built with 100% solar power, plus recycled edges, recycled sidewalls and a flax topsheet

It’s such an incredible board for variable conditions. You can charge through powder, crust or crud and stay focused on the terrain instead of the snow.
