The Surfy Speed Racer

The Storm Chaser is a power packed swallowtail that offers magical float in pow and radical carving potential. Surfboard shaper Chris Christenson designed the rocker profile and base contours of the Storm Chaser by using the refined dimensions of his fastest gliding surfboards. The result is an explosively fast powder rocket that packs insane float into a nimble, short board. The ultra-wide waist width and 3D Contour Base 4.0 help maximize the float of the short running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you rock into a bottom turn. New for 2020, we’ve updated the Storm Chaser’s FSC Bamboo Surf Core and 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

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.
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.
Web Fused Carbon
New carbon stringer pack that blends different widths of carbon matched to the specific needs of the board model. Featured on the surf collection models to eliminate nose vibration and on the Solution splitboard as a reinforcement under the binding. Made in the USA, EXCLUSIVE for Jones.
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™ Bamboo Surf Core
Re-designed triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that features primarily paulownia stringers with bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.
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.

Next level technology for ultimate response
Glide. Flow. Float.
3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.

I’ve been on a quest to design a snowboard that offers the friction free glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. 3D Contour bases finally cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of board performance. Jeremy Jones
