The hashtag #ihearthovercrafting is no joke. Supreme float and rally car-like handling has earned the Hovercraft a cult following. Riders around the world swear by the Hovercraft's nimble maneuverability as this power-packed board deftly handles blower, crud or crust one and the same. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft provide the float, while the stiff tail and Mellow Magne-Traction lock in stability through the bumps. For catchfree slashing, the base along the tail edges of the Hovercraft are beveled up one degree for more playful control. New for 2016, the Hovercraft's bamboo wood topsheet features burned 'no-ink' logo graphics. Directional Rocker - A hybrid rocker/camber flex patter 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. Wrap Tip Construction - Full wood core to the tip and ABS sidewall completely wraps around tip for added response and Hover 3D 1% Bevel - The last several centimeters of the solid Hover-craft tail edges are beveled up one degree to increase edge maneuverability and loosen up the tail. Mellow Magne-traction - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. Progressive Sidecut - At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut 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.
