The Surfy Speed Racer

The Storm Chaser Split unlocks access to those remote frozen swells and packs insane float into a short, but still high volume splitboard. The ultra-wide waist width maximizes the float of the shortened running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you step on the gas. The Storm Chaser’s short sidecut will have you ripping tight tree runs like a GS course on even the deepest days. The unique shape is matched with Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges for enhanced grip on icy skintracks or firm descents and Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips for unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode. New for 2020, we’ve added Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

 


Personality

 


Traction Tech

Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock
into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. — Jeremy Jones

Quick Tension Tail Clip
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
Progressive Sidecut
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
Flip Flop Base
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
Sintered 9900
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight ­Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Biax Fiberglass
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Factory Tuned
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Oversized Recycled Edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Karakoram Ultra Clip
ULTRA clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
The Bridge Tech
The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stifness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
Recycled Rounded ABS
New rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting top sheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and Surf Series models.
Eco Plastic Topsheet
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)
Super Sap Bio Resin
All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
FSC™ Control Split Core
Dual-density full premium wood core designed specifically for split boards 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio keeps core light yet ultra damp.
Gear 101
Not all board shapes are designed to be ridden the same size. The Surf Series models live by their own sizing rules.
Choose the ideal size Surf Series board using your weight and boot size (see the size chart below).
 
 
If you wear US Men’s 11.5 or bigger, look for our Big Horn series boards with minimum waist width 26.3 cm.
Not sure your ideal snowboard size? Check out our sizing guidelines for each model.
 

 
Know your board
The dimensions of a snowboard define how that board performs on snow. The dimension specs of all our models are fine tuned for specific styles of riding.
Understand how waist width, flex and sidecut and stance dimensions effect board performance to find the best board for you.

Bolt-less Bridge

The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
