Hovercraft or not hovercraft?
I am a beginner (2nd season) and am thinking of buying a new board (been using OLD OLD boards my brother gave me). I don't think I am the park type; mostly into powder and speed. I really like the Jones Hovercraft from the reviews and from the simplicity of its form. Questions: should I get the Jones Hovercraft while I am still learning? Since I am still learning I will most like stick to the East Coast packed-snow hills - would riding a hovercraft look funny and out of place? The shortest Jones Hovercraft seems to be 152, I'm 5'6", 140 lbs so I assume that would be the size I should go for. Opinions?
