Jones Hovercraft 2.0 2024 Snowboard

Boardworks Breakdown:

There are a TON of these up at Baker for a reason: They are basically the perfect directional Baker board. The Hovercraft floats like crazy, busts through crud, and holds an edge like a champ. This NEW updated shape takes all that goodness, and improves apon it. 

Manufacturer Description: 


The evolved all-conditions charger

Ideal for pow slashing, crud busting and slaloming trees. 

The Hovercraft 2.0 is an explosive alternative freeride board with a tapered directional shape that offers surprisingly diverse performance. With a floaty nose, camber underfoot and a long sidecut, the Hovercraft charges through pow, crust or corn, and rails on piste. The Hovercraft also features Re-Up Tech and is built with recycled materials from old snowboards.

Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point. 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.

Traction Tech 1.0

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

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.


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 

Directional Flex Pattern

Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.

Reclaimed Core 

High performance poplar paulownia wood core featuring specially positioned embedded stringers made from reclaimed snowboards.


A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.


Biax Fiberglass

A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

Insert pack

Float Pack

Allows super setback stance for deep pow days.



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. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.


All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.


Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.


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.


Sustainable Flax Top 

Flax fibers are used in place of a traditional topsheet and offer a damp ride that absorbs chatter at any speed. Flax uses less resin in the board layup which saves more weight and synthetic materials.
