The otherworldly performance of the Storm Chaser could not be contained to just the resort boundaries. The Storm Chaser Splitboard unlocks access to those remote frozen swells and packs insane float into a short, but still high volume board. 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. Turn your tightest tree runs into a GS course on this nimble stick on even the deepest days. The Storm Chaser Splitboard features the Boltless Bridge which eliminates base hardware and Karakoram ultra clips for improved connection between board halves.

BOLT-LESS BRIDGE Splitboard Connection

Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days.
These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.

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

Blunt Nose

“How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight.” - Jeremy Jones

Bamboo Surf Core

Our new triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that has bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.

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.

Recycled ABS Sidewalls

ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

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 lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves.

Stainless Steel Hardware

Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

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).

The Quick Tension Tail Clip is designed for 2018 Jones Splitboards except the Discovery Split. All Jones Splitboards (except Discovery Split) now feature a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip fastener to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.

The first template of the Storm Chaser was a thin piece of wood hand drawn and cut by Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones in Jeremy’s garage. They used Chris’ surf shaping tools to outline the shape and rocker profile. The hand written notes delineate subtle rocker contours and dimensions.

Honored to continue a design partnership with renowned San Diego surfboard shaper Chris Christenson. Chris is one of the most diverse surf shapers in the world and makes everything from contest boards to longboards and record breaking big wave guns.
