Jeremy Jones only needed one day riding the Storm Chaser solid before he decided to make a Storm Chaser Split. This was a board he wanted to ride all the time - inbounds or backcountry. The Storm Chaser Split is an ultra fast gliding split that 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 Split features our new Boltless Bridge which eliminates base hardware and Karakoram Ultra Clips for improved connection between board halves.
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.
The Quick Tension Tail Clip is designed for 2016-17 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.
Surfboards and snowboards share more than just a riding stance. Both of these sideways sliding pursuits demand an ultra fast gliding board that allows e ortless, friction free movement through the water or snow. More glide equals more speed and more options for riding creativity.
To blend the best of surfboard technology with snowboard technology, we forged 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
The Mountain Surfer, Storm Chaser and Storm Chaser Split are the first o spring of our collaboration with Chris. All three of these hand shaped, surf-inspired boards feature the subtleties and contours of Chris’ fastest surf shapes including a Surf Rocker Profile, Spoon Nose and Speed Channel Tail.
To no surprise, these boards are the fastest gliding boards in the Jones quiver.
